Article: Stop paying for things you don't need

Posted By Paul

This article reminded me of an earlier post on Frugalize called:

Stuff to look at when it's time to cut back

It was an article that suggested ways to avoid spending money when you don't have to. I especially liked their suggestions for avoiding bottled water (which I mention in an earlier post: Save On Drinking Water) and also their suggestion to avoid buying a bunch of ring tones and apps for your cell phone.

The second suggestion reminds me of a friend that bought a new cell phone but wasn't aware that there was a charge involved when it came to downloading ring tones. My friend happily updated their ring tone at least every day and ended up with a giant cell phone bill at the end of the month.

Here is the article in full:
