I'm A Winner

I won a book!

Last week I entered a contest at My Two Dollars. The prize being offered was a copy of the book Frugillionaire: 500 Fabulous Ways To Live Richly and Save a Fortune.

To win, all I had to do to enter was leave a comment telling about one frugal thing I've started doing lately. Here's my comment:

My husband is required to have a cell phone for work, so we have a family plan so that our calls to and from each other don’t use any minutes. We recently realized that we almost never use our land line phone to make calls and only get about 5 calls on it a month. We decided it wasn’t worth the monthly cost and had it disconnected and will use just our cell phones from now on. This will save us $35 a month.
I received word a little while ago that I'd won! Thanks, David!

Be sure to check out My Two Dollars for plenty of thoughtful articles regarding personal finance, and the contest post comments in particular for many more helpful frugal tips from David's readers.
