$ Ideas

In an attempt to become completely debt free due to an overwhelming new load of medical bills and with the baby coming in 13 short weeks adding more expenses that we aren't currently used to paying, we need any and all ideas to save money. We have already cut out satellite, phone line, downed our cell phone plan, changed garbage service to the cheapest provider I could find, don't water as much, turned the a/c to 76* (Edgar might move out for this one :), plan our drives better to save gas, use coupons, stopped eating out (except for very rare occasions), sold Edgar's truck, changed our car insurance plan and use a discount thru E's work, and changed our internet provider. (I still have to submit assignments via internet-but I guess I could completely cancel it, and just go to someone else's house.) So if anybody has ideas for us please feel free to tell me-I take constructive criticism very well. :) Point out my poor $ choices and help me save!

Wow, you are an inspiration to us all. My only advise is to try or for diapers and baby expenses--i haven't tried it yet but my friends swear by it. Also, as for your major med. expenses, I would call the rep from your company, as in edgars company, not the insurance company and make them fight for you. if they are still processing your claim, you shouldn't have to pay on it, and they'll do anything to please a rep or they could loose the whole's worth a try!
