I am brand new to this community and even this idea of not living as a Sukka Consumer (that still cracks me up every time). So, for many of you these are probably no-brainers, but for the first time in my life, I no longer have cable TV (savings $39.96/month) and I just canceled the voice mail on my telephone line. Turns out my telephone has an answering machine in it, so I just figured out how to use that instead at a savings of $7/month, and canceled the telephone line wire insurance plan through Fairpoint (savings of $4.99/month). Also, since I started reading all of these posts about 3 weeks ago, I have spent a grand total of $68 on groceries for a family 5 + 1 very large dog and we've eaten out zero times. Before MMM, I averaged $150/week for groceries + 2-3 lunches out per week. We didn't stop eating obviously (3 teenagers!), but instead I've been looking to the things I already had in pantry and freezer, planning ahead, and cooking at home rather than running out to buy new stuff all the time or grabbing a pre-made meal. We ran out of milk last week and I didn't buy any for 3 whole days. We drank water instead. No one died. So far, so good!
