-I thought I wasn’t able to switch to a different electricity supplier to save money, but turns out — we can, and we did. This ought to save us a bit of money, as our apartment is all-electric. I received a notice in the mail from FirstEnergy Solutions Corp. which helped me set it up to 7.19 cents per kWh.
-Are you making the best of your Netflix subscription? Peter at Bible Money Matters points us to a site that can help us get a better look at our usage. We use our Netflix to try out exercise DVDs, rent movies to watch, and for the streaming onto our Wii. We put our membership on hold from time to time when we notice we’re not really using it.
-I loved Crystal’s insights on paying cash for a house, and how it really might not be the best option if you have to make too many sacrifices for too long. I suppose we *could* save enough cash someday for a house, but I don’t want to have to live bare-bones for a decade to do it.
–Is it always good to pay off your car loan early? (@PT Money) Perhaps not, if you’re down to the end of the loan and you owe very little interest on it by that point. But, it’ll free up some cash and it’s always nice to drive a paid-for vehicle. Just as with all things financial, this will depend on your own situation and goals. Personally, I am glad we paid our car off early. If we didn’t, we’d still be paying on it through this November! Blech.
K have a nice weekend!
