I'm not sure what kind of phone you have but I have a basic wired telephone $30.00. I get my internet from http://www.Netscape.com for $11.95 a month dial-up service. I have cut out Television and bought a VHS player and buy VHS tapes from the local thrift store at .49 cents a tape to watch. I have a scanner which gives me updated local news if I want it or I can use the internet..I have a At & T Go phone cell phone which I buy calling cards at a reduced price at http://www.callingmart.co... and only use it for limited or emergency calls.or texts from the kids and only fill once a month with a $10.00 refill card. I have a huge savings in my life doing these things.
TV is a mind and pocket money waster. We all need internet these days but we don't need TV or IPhones if you have a computer.I studied garden tips online then I used the money I saved to plant a garden and a project for the whole family and all summer I also saved money eating fresh vegetables out of the garden. My kids can't wait till this year because they just loved the cherry tomatoes.. I also take in animals and feed strays in the area so I understand the food problem so I needed to cut something out to bring something in and these things were it..It was very hard at first for the family but after a few months with a family movie once a week plus popcorn and all was well...

Loving Momma
Bengrining, I wonder if it would be helpful if you could think of a way to live your life without the cable/phone/internet you can't afford. Also, I wonder whether your stress over money makes it wise for you to be raising so many dogs. Sometimes the best way to deal with stress is to live a simple life. When you think of all the people throughout the world, and throughout history, who were happy just to have food, you might see that some of your stress is avoidable. Perhaps you can find joy in simplicity. Best wishes.
