Our most expensive bill is rent! We've looked elsewhere, but we are really happy here. Our cell phone is pretty high, and we are thinking about not renewing our contract because I hate paying as much as we do. It's kind of ridiculous for our income. Our electric bill has been super high due to the summer heat, but it's thankfully starting to go down. It dropped $40 in one month!

Our least amount is our internet bill. We are both college student, so we really need the internet, and they have offered us good deals so far.

Rent and gas (fuel) is the most for us. We really can't get much better on our rent in our area and gas we plan our trips out and drive our car more then the truck.

Our least is our gas bill. Our dryer and stove are really the only things that we run from that. Since it is summer we BBQ a lot so that has cut back on our bill.

Our most expensive bill is our mortgage and second to that is my car payment. We can't lower the mortgage without moving and that isn't happening, but I have really thought about selling my car. It would be the first thing to go if things got tight.

Our least expensive bill is our water bill and that is just because water is pretty cheap through our town.

Most expensive is rent by far, but it includes water, garbage, electricity, and gas. Makes zero sense for us to go elsewhere with cheaper rent because then we'd have to pay all those bills and our car gas prices would be a lot higher (we usually only fill up once every 2-3 weeks).
Least expensive probably internet. Though we could go even cheaper, we won't compromise service and speed. For us internet is a "must have" for our sanity and if we had to start cutting stuff out it would be last to go before cars and such. lol

Most expensive is rent. Least expensive would be 1 of my credit cards. It's only low because I don't use it much. Try to keep the bills to the minimal

Most expensive is our mortgage, followed by health insurance. We will be dropping our PMI in a few months, so our mortgage will go down but we're thinking of keeping the payment the same and rolling the extra into more principal payments. Can't really do anything about health insurance, although ours is not traditional insurance (we use a health share) so we are saving money in that regard.

Least expensive is DH's disability insurance. It's like $10 a month. He is young, healthy and works in a low risk job so it's cheap. We really like to be insured though, peace of mind.
