How I $aved Money this week

It’s that time of year again. Once a year, I call Time Warner Cable and threaten to discontinue my internet service. Why do we have to play this little game?

Every year, TWC raises my bill about 10% which prompts me to call TWC to request a discount. They give me one for 10% that is good for one year and we start the process over again.

Evidently, TWC is banking on the fact that a lot of people do not bother to call in and get this discount. The price goes up and they don’t notice, or don’t care, or just don’t know what can be done? As usual, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. I hate being the squeaky wheel and I find this type of business practice repulsive. And as soon as I find a better internet/ TV deal I will show them just how much I dislike doing business with them. LOL.

Another little savings was realized by using a Home Depot coupon that I received in the mail. I purchased over $50 worth of reflective insulating material and got $5 off the bill. It was an easy ten percent savings.

  1. Wow- you set the bar when it comes to getting great savings.

    By the way, is you passive income to expenses really at 95%? That is amazing!
