As soon as we decided that we were going to move to Spain I knew we had to minimize our expenses as soon as possible and begin to save up. Since then we have begun eating out less, shopping at low cost supermarkets (we always shop at Aldi), bringing food with us for our lunch breaks at work, using our central air conditioning less (and using it more efficiently), going out less, eliminating all superfluous expenses, and cancelled our boat club membership.
Next I will be looking at getting a less expensive internet package (we have a 60 MBPS Cable internet plan with no cable TV), selling my car and sharing the one Danielle drives, and getting a family plan for our cellphones as opposed to two individual plans. Every dollar counts because it the end it all adds up.
What have you done lately to eliminate any unnecessary expenses? 🙂 Oh, the American lifestyle #TooExpensive.
