Since I’ve started doing the 31 Days of Nothing Challenge, I’ve been thinking a lot about not only our spending, but on other ways to save money.
So I do a lot of reading and went on my Internet Service company’s website and noticed that they had a special for new customers. I was paying $72.95 for our high-speed internet and last month is went up to $74.95. That’s a lot, I know. But I need the high speed internet as I do a lot of ftp uploads and such for my businesses. Plus, we have no cable service…I cancelled that over a year ago and don’t miss it one bit!
So I called to cancel my internet service. It took about a week for it to get shut off and as soon as it did, I called back to request new service. I found online that they had the high speed internet for $29.99 (my total is $33.19 with taxes).
They tried to tell me this was a little slower than what I had, since we had some kind of Boost service. We’ll we’ve had it for over a week and I see no difference at all.
It never hurts to make a phone call. They were willing to change it over the first time that I called to cancel..but I wanted to shop a round a little bit. That’s an extra $41.76 savings per month that will be going to pay off debt. Every penny helps! Check out this post about paying off debt $.19 at a time..I love it!
Do you have any other tips that help you save money every month?
