New Year’s Resolution: Stop Paying for Things I Don’t Need.

As the New Year approaches, many of us find ourselves pondering New Year resolutions.  We ask ourselves what we will do differently this year and how we plan to make positive changes in our lives.  As we evaluate these new endeavors, the topic of saving money often crosses our mind.  How can we get more out of our lives without giving something up?  One way of accomplishing this goal is to reduce expenses.  Analyze your spending history and find items you can eliminate or find a substitute for.   Once you have identified these items, take action!

A common expense in many of our lives is home phone service. Although many people use their home phone service regularly, there are still millions of others who are only paying their monthly phone bill so they can keep their phone number.  So if you are one of the millions paying for a service you rarely use, what options do you have?  One increasing popular option is to park and forward your phone number.  Number parking is a simple solution that ensures you never miss a phone call and can also reduce your phone bill by up to 90%!   

Here’s a diagram of how simple it is to use number parking:
