As I get older, I don’t need as many things and we continue to reduce and eliminate things and save the money.
This year, I have eliminated things in my business that I don’t really need – such as my efax and 800# (most of my correspondence is by email, so why pay for these services). As you know, I have changed the format of the newsletter and eliminated another monthly service bill. All this adds up to a savings.
For our personal life, we would rather have experiences versus stuff. I spent a good part of 2017 going through family photos, slides and movies ( a bug project that I should have done a long time ago). We sorted and tossed. We sorted and gave to other family members. We sorted and scanned photos. We sorted and had the slides digitized. We sorted and had the movies turned into DVDs. We took numerous boxes, a file cabinet and slide carousels into a few photo albums and DVD’s. All the photo are a back up hard drive and in a cloud (the ones we saved I don’t want to lose).
What can your reduce or eliminate to save you money?
