    Just had our well acid treated and screen replaced that was clogged. Had a new pump installed too. It's artesian, so water is running out of it at 4.5 gal/min (my measurement). I guess it lasted about 25 years before needing that service for $3000. Let’s see, 25 years times 12 = 300 months. That’s $10 / month.

    btw, we water our yard with pumped creek water.

    Cable/dish... it's just too expensive to want to pay for, seeing as I watch a whole 3 channels out of everything that they charge me for.

    I don't pay for any of the utilities listed except cell phone and cable. The others are part of my housing. It's hard to choose between those two though. My cell phone company sucks because we just lost our phone and it costs an arm and a leg to buy a new one. It absolutely sucks. Plus, they are trying to sucker people into paying for another line to get a new phone at their "discounted" price, but you would basically be obligated to keep that other line for at least 2 years so you would be paying for the phone anyway. Now, as far as cable goes. Ours sucks. It goes out all the time, it takes days to get people to come out to fix it. It costs a fortune. We're going to be giving up all but very basic cable, and adding a phone line and it will literally cut our cable bill in half. We barely get more than basic cable now though.
