5. I'm cheap so I avoid a lot of that stuff...

airlines = actually I almost never fly any more if I can help it. I would rather drive to Disney than fly.

Food delivery = luckily that hasn't hit me, but I often do food pick up anyway.

Banking = I've given up using other atms besides my own banks.

Commercials on cable = time to see what's on other channels.

News = I would never pay for online news. Too many free sites.

Trash pickup = didn't we always pay for this via taxes? ?????

Gas = I'm in NJ. We aren't ALLOWED to pump our own gas by law.

College = OK, this is ridiculous.

411 = use the computer to look up a number

Bill by phone = nope, use the computer
