It often feels as though every single bill is rising: Electric is going up because gas prices continue to soar and our electric company needs to recoup costs from last year's hurricane, cable/internet are going up just because they can, and insurance (both car and home) is rising because of the risk of hurricanes. So every time I open a statement, I cringe a little in anticipation. But, yesterday I got a notice from my gym that says they are reducing my monthly membership dues by $5 a month!
I know it's a small amount, but added up over the course of the year, it saves me $60. That could buy me a new running outfit, or could be put toward a new pair of running shoes!
Of course, it could also buy me two tanks of gas (sigh); that's probably where I'll end up spending my savings.
