The only bill that is as low as it can go right now is the phone bill, and I need a backup which means increasing it. The good news is that bill will only be $30 a month, once I decide on a phone. The bad news is that my measly savings is more measly.
The light bill is one I can control better. It is $103 due in April. I already have that in the bank to pay it with, and will be as soon as the funds clear. The goal is to have a $50 light bill due in May. The air is off, a fan is in the window and we run our fans at night to keep cool. Theresa is good about making sure everything is off before we leave the apartment to go anywhere.
The things that we need can be budgeted, stretched to last longer and bought on sale. Keeping cash (a rare occurrence) will control spending.
What do you have that you can control when it comes to expenses?
