While going through the credit card statement last month, my wife realized that we have quite a few automatic recurring charges that are there every month. After looking at them there were a few that we could do without and have ended up saving money by cancelling some of the services we no longer use or use very little.

When you don't see these charges on a daily basis and you just see the total amount due, you just might go ahead and pay the balance and not realize what makes up that balance. When you analyze it, you can end up saving yourself quite a bit of money. Every little $8 from Netflix a month can really add up to some savings!
