I raised my kids as a single mother. With one exception, I already did everything on the list because I had to. I had the cheapest cable TV package. If you cut out all the other forms of entertainment, you need something. We also had impromptu picnics, trips to a free zoo or a farm, visited the homestead of a famous author, etc.
Now that I am remarried, life has been easier. But I haven't changed a whole lot in spending. Family is one of our priorities.
We do have a cable package that includes our phone, free long distance, and my internet connection. We have 4 children plus almost all of our relatives that were long distance calls. We keep in touch with some via internet. We use a track phone for a cell phone. We may be old fuddy duddies, but we don't need all the gadgets that you can get with a cell phone.
My biggest cost savings, SPARK PEOPLE.
