I’m looking through my budget for things I can cut out. I have a major event in December, 2020. I need to keep internet service because of house alarms, laptops and devices. I bought a ROKU device and I find I only watch my Hulu, Netflix and Youtube. I know where to find news and critical weather news online or on my ipad or iPhone. $160/mo is what I’m paying now. Can I get internet and a tiny TV package cheaper? This sounds obvious, but I’m I dizzy blonde. lol I’m also stopping my YMCA at $52/month. I have access to free gym and pool on base. That’s $600 in a year!! I have a wardrobe that rivals most movie stars. Not only did I collect couture while stationed all over the world, I always purchased the best quality and classic styles. I don’t need 7 closets of clothes. I don’t need Waterford crystal or fine china. My daughter said she’d help with Ebay. My son is selling my extra car. I’m also going through my jewelry and selling pieces I will never wear. Who needs seven platinum and diamond dress watches, when I NEVER wear a watch? The big event? I’m moving from my modest home to a handicap adaptive home where I can age in place. Taxes and insurance are $357/month now. New house? $1250/mo P/I/I, taxes will be waived due to 100% disability. That will be about 20% of my monthly income. Quite reasonable because most decent rentals will cost that much. Any advice on where you cut out to achieve a goal? Thanks in advance for any tips.
