Tough times during recession call for thrifty measures in one’s New Year’s Resolutions
With the holidays upon us, many people are feeling even more squeezed financially than before. The tradition of writing out New Year’s Resolutions may provide a good opportunity to take a look at where your money is going, look for ways to trim the fat, and align your spending with your values.
Here’s a tip to get you started: billshrink.com is a free service to analyze your telecom bills and find the thriftiest plan for your actual usage patterns. One quick and easy change that I made awhile back has saved me a bundle (about $500/year): I switched one of my phone lines to ACN VoIP. For ~$25/mo. I get everything that I was paying $55+/mo. for. They’ll even sell you a videophone for only $99! I can’t recommend my ACN account exec highly enough; she’ll take excellent care of you and make sure that she’s saving you money.
