variable-constantBy definition, a variable varies or changes. Discuss some examples in your lives where some things are always constant and never change while other things may vary. For example, think about your cell phone bill. Is it constant or does it vary and if so, why? What about rent, grocery bills, etc.

Life is like a list of data. You will always have bills and expenses which are constants but the amounts are never set so they are variables. With some exceptions. Our internet is $80 a month till they jack it up. *sigh* Cell phone is $25 a month. Things like electricity, groceries, gas tend to vary.

Because of WiFi, data plans don’t have to be so large. You can change the variable of the price by switching services on your phone. Some services throttle your data. There’s always things one can do to lower the variable price on all those other things too.

It’s hard when your busy or trying to eat healthily to keep your grocery budget as constant as possible. One can’t live on Ramen alone. LOL Clipping coupons can take time. Granted Publix, Walgreens, WalMart & Winn dixie all have their ways of automating savings and adding digital coupons. In addition, it’s why apps like Check out 51 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., Ibotta (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and Receipt Hog (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., you can reduce the variable of the cost of groceries.

Another way to lower your cable bill constant by getting rid of your cable company. We use an android box called R-box. It was a 1 time payment of $100 but it came with a remote and mini keypad. LOVE it! I use an app called Kodi  (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.that allows you to watch whatever you want!  The cool part about Kodi is you can use it on a PC, Tablet or Cell phone but, for TV it always requires a Firestick, Android box or other similar devices.

Unfortunately, our internet bill is a constant of $80 with spectrum but, AT&T recently came by and offered us the same internet for $45. So we are looking at making a change. The best part is changing companies for the internet is not like changing cable companies where you learn a new system and reprogram to DVR the shows you like etc….
