Phones x 2 - $140

We basically watch most stuff online nowadays when we watch TV shows, we used to have cable TV that was costing us over $100 per month but we got rid of it as we basically stopped watching it.

NY:
Cablevision and Internet $180
Mobile phone service (Verizon) $150 for 2 iPhones
NY Land line (Verizon) $90

NJ:
Comcast $180 for cable, internet and NJ landline phone


We have a monthly TIVO service bill which I think is about $15 in NY and we own the other 4 TIVOs (total of 5 TIVOs for both homes together) so only pay a monthly on one of them.
And Netflix service which I think is only $7.99 a month. A bargain and they have great shows.

We are in CT and have Comcast Triple Play and pay $164 a month. Our contract is up in December and he will cancel all but the internet since we just got a fire stick and between that and Netflix we will be all set.

Cell phones are $146 a month. Just upgraded in January because our 4S's stopped working. We have two phones and get a discount through my husband's job.

About 300 for Verizon cells - 5 lines - 4 smart phones and an old flip phone for mom (she doesn't want a smart phone). I think we get about 12 gigs of data a month shared.

Cable...50ish.

We finally decided to bundle everything (home phone, cell phones, cable, Internet, and home security system) with AT & T, which will save us a significant amount each month.

Comcast is tv and internet - $125

AT&T is four lines, three iphones, one other smart phone, all but one phone is paid off. The other phone is mostly paid off, but requires a $15 per month payment. There is insurance on three phones. The bill is $190 per month.

Grand total $315

Each month I think that there has got to be a better way.... :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall:

I am surprised so many people still have cable. Can't say I miss it at all!

I almost never watch TV, but I live with someone who does, unfortunately. I hope maybe to get him to try Sling TV with sports added ($30) with Netflix and Amazon Prime movies (which we already have) for some substantial savings.

AT&T U-Verse TV and internet: $180 a month

Verizon wireless: 3 iPhones with shared data at $160 a month. In September our current contract will be up and we can change to their new lower cost plan that has lower monthly fees but doesn't give free/low cost phones.

This is what we have and I highly recommend it. We switched to Sling years ago and our savings was substantial. We have Sling, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, and HBO Go and we pay about 1/5 of what our cable bill was 5 years ago.

We pay a ridiculous amount. Cable, internet and internet phone is around $300 per month, unlimited access. It's bundled in such a way that we have to pay the higher amount to watch some very basic channels. :angryfire: My cellphone rate is $68 per month and DH's is about $90/month. When I get a new phone, my bill will go up about $45 more because they can. More :angryfire: .

Cable: $89
Phones and internet: $0 (both my husband and I only have company cellular plans and his company pays for internet because he technically works from home.
Kids' cell phones: No idea. I'm not the bill-payer in the house obviously. I just know our kids are spoiled. they have nicer phones than us, and unlimited data, texts etc!

I pay Comcast $90/month for cable. I pay my parents $76.31 per month for cell service (total is 228 for all 3 of us - it's cheaper to be on a family plan so I am still on theirs, will transition to plan with fi soon).

To clarify - I write my parents a monthly check for my portion - I'm not a 30-something moocher!!!
