Let's brainstorm all the different kinds of ways you can save money and to keep more of your paycheck every month.
Here's a few to get this going:
Lower your cable bill, or cut the cord. I know many people that pay $200+ on a cable package, where they only watch a handful of channels. You could easily switch to a cheaper plan, or cord cut and go with a much cheaper internet TV plan instead. I particularly like Sling TV. Just found out you can cast from your phone to a smart TV. Great feature.
Lower cell phone data plan. Same deal. In my experience you can switch from unlimited internet to limited, like 2-3GBs and save a decent amount of money on your bill. Just be more aware of when you are streaming content outside of the house. Really helps to download music or podcasts straight to your device over wifi before you leave the house, for example.
Cancel streaming services or monthly subscriptions. The days of a la carte streaming services have many of us subscribed to so many things that we can easily lose count. And all those $8-20/month charges can really add up!
You could be paying for Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, Amazon Prime and Audible all at the same time. Just off the top of my head. Not too mention all the games or apps on your phone that sneakily get a few bucks off you a month, taking advantage of you forgetting trial periods expiring. Chances are good you aren't really getting your money's worth out of ALL the things you're subscribed to, so consider which ones you like the most and start cancelling the ones you don't really use. Imagine many of us could be saving around $50/month just by cancelling unnecessary subscriptions.
That's 3 that could potentially save you a good chunk of money every month.
