How about a positive post!

We are all here for lots of different reasons.....Some of us have lost our jobs or are underemployed, some of us are recently divorced, some of us have big medical bills,

Well, our 2-year FIOS contract ended on the bundling and it was going to go up $10/month so I lowered the TV coverage to the lowest tier for $20 less a month. We aren't losing that many channels (although dh is sad about the NFL Network lol) but hopefully it will at least keep the payments the same if not less. And unlike the last time I went through this lowering the TV selections doesn't automatically lower our Internet speed and phone features. That burned me up last time - so glad they changed that.

But I've been living and learning. . .

And truthfully feeling a bit sorry for myself (even though my bills are barely paid
