10. Memberships and Subscriptions
Do you really need to hang on to all those memberships and subscriptions to magazines, monthly boxes, gyms, etc., that you aren’t using anyway? Doing so can result in you losing a lot of money over time.
I know it’s hard to let go of things sometimes, but do yourself a favor and review all your memberships and subscriptions (you probably forgot about half of them anyway), then figure out which ones you use and/or need and cancel the ones you don’t use or need. Problem solved!
9. Landline Service
Who still uses landline phones? Well, the answer to that might surprise you. In fact, many consumers still use them, especially in case of emergencies. But, chances are they aren’t using their landlines as much as they used to now that cell phones are all the rage.
And, if that’s the case, they’re literally throwing money away. That being said, savings expert Andrea Woroch recommends switching from a traditional landline service to a free internet home phone provider like Ooma.
Although Ooma’s phone service is free, you will have to make a one-time payment to cover the device’s cost (shipping is free), plus monthly taxes and fees– which will depend on your zip code. But it’s usually only a few bucks a month. For example, when I entered my zip code, taxes and fees came out to $5.84/month. Not bad at all!
