Such great information Jen. Our utility company allows a customer, after
one year, to average their bill. Our electric bill is lower in the winter
and very high in the summer so an average is determined based on the
previous year. For instance, in August the electric bill might be $350 but
due to averaging we actually pay $185 because our lower months have been
averaged into the total. This at least allows us to have some control
over our budget. Not sure if other utility companies allow this, but it’s
worth a try. Looking forward to all your great suggestions!

Great tips Jen… We haven’t had cable in 3 years, but we do have Netflix!!
It’s been great 🙂 It’s so crazy about the the Mortgage interest, I can’t
want to pay off our house in a couple of years!! We’ve been putting so much
extra towards our house payment!! You’re awesome!!

Great video Jen…..you are so helpful in all of them. You have such a
sweet personality! :)

Thanks for all the info, Jen–I love, love, love your videos. With our
mortgage, we got a traditional 30 year, but made the 15 yr payment (or more
when we could)–that way we weren’t financially obligated to the 15 yr
amount should an emergency arise–we also designated a certain portion of
our tax return every year to make a larger lump sum payment. We also built
onto our home using a home equity loan. By paying extra, we had everything
paid off and owned our home free and clear after 13 years. 🙂 Lindsay

Great tips! For home and auto insurance, call and specifically ask to have
your policy re-rated; especially if you’ve been with the same carrier for
years or if your credit score has improved. Sometimes, you can get a new
policy with the same carrier for a better premium. And with AT&T, I called
and said I was calling to cancel and they offered me a better rate on cable

Great video. Will you be sharing any tips on medical bills? Any new tips
will be greatly appreciated. With all the new healthcare changes and
employers switching to high-deductible plans and pushing more of the costs
to employees this is an area that needs more attention in my financial

I cancelled my cable two years ago, we only have Netflix and Hulu Plus.
It’s hard to do it , but once the cable was off it was no big deal. We also
got a Magic Jack Plus for our phone since we have to have to have a land
line. That only cost 30 per year after you buy the Magic Jack.

As a young mom you are someone I look up to. Just wanted to let you know 😉

This is something I hope to concentrate on this year, especially with
homeowners and car insurance. Good tip about the electricity and
unplugging stuff. I need to go through the house and start unplugging
since we only live in a small portion of our home.

Do you mind me asking if you own your home outright?

Please do a video about how to pay off a car loan or mortgage loan quicker
than term. Helpful tips about that would be good !

It only costs roughly $80/year to run a ceiling fan and that’s if it is on
24/7/365. Ceiling fans are wonderful and a cheap cooling source especially
if you don’t have central air like my family.

Informative video but I am a little confused….I just started watching
your channel and saw the videos about the new home you are buying. It is
more than twice as big as the home you are in now. Why have you guys
decided to incur more debt at this stage of your lives with two boys going
to college in a few years? Just curious-hope this isn’t too personal.
