We majorly trimmed my cell phone bill about 3 years ago. I was going to be SAH so I really only needed my phone for emergencies while in the car or if we were on a walk or at the park or something. I can't remember for sure, I think the bill was about $70/month and now I buy $100 of minute and it lasts me almost a full year. $840 vs $100-I LIKE!
I don't miss it at all since I am home and can use the home phone if I need to. (Our home phone is actually cheaper to have than not have because of the bundle)
Honestly, we didn't cut anything as there's only two bills that aren't necesities, but cutting them wouldn't have made a big enough difference so we didn't. Everything else wasn't something we were willing to give up or we couldn't give it up. We stopped eating out as much, but we didn't cut it entirely.
Like Kris we have pay as you go cell phones and I wish I had used them for the last decade SO EASY!
One thing we trimmed and almost died without was trash service. The people here before us just threw the trash in the ditch. So nasty. We put ours in a bin and we burned it, took it to church whatever we could do to get rid of it. I know that the $21 our trash bill is is WORTH EVERY CENT!
