    I had to wait till my cable TV contract was over before I cut it off. Otherwise I would've had to shell out $200-300! SOOOO glad we cut the cable, stupid bill was getting ridiculously out of hand, like >$150/month!!! Now I just have internet so that alone saved me $100 even though it's the last semester of school. Waaay too expensive! Now my fiancee and I just have Netflix and a bunny ear antenna to pick up over the air channels. We also haven't been to the movies together in... well I can't remember the last time That's for after graduation indulgence.

    I try to limit how much I eat out especially at clinical site cafeterias. It's a precarious balance trying to figure out how much to work biweekly to pay the bills (I'm on-call) and not working so much that you take away from study time.

    I tried to not use the AC and heater as much. Also we have been penny pinching when going grocery shopping, i.e. using coupons, buying sale items only, forgoing organic foods.

    Make sure you thank your parents often for the wonderful gift of rent-free living and food on the table. What great people You've got a good plan there. It will pay off later when you're done with school.
    I do almost everyday. I am very grateful to have such a supporting family.
