I am planning to call the internet company tomorrow to see if there is a lower plan we can get on. Our phone bill is only $4.72 a month. That is the taxes for our area. We have ooma as our phone. We got it as a christmas present from a family member. I am also planning to change our garbage pick up from weekly to every other week. That will save us about $7 a month.
