Planning Into Minimalism

I'm on day 2 of my journey into Minimalism. I'm planning. I didn't buy a calendar like they recommend, but instead used Microsoft Outlook. I'm thinking Outlook might be the problem. That software is expensive. I'm planning my digital minimalist life. I have a lot of monthly, quarterly, and yearly fees for digital services, when free ones are just as good or nearly just as good. I think I'll spend my free time during Christmas transitioning to the free services, like using GMail instead of Outlook/Exchange.

I pay for source control, when I could just host it myself for free.

I pay for web hosting from several different companies, but I should consolidate and make my expenses cheaper.

I canceled GOTOMeeting (which I use primarily to remote control computers or show someone my screen), because I can just use mikogo for free.

I'm going to comb over my cell phone bill and cancel unneeded phones and services. My phone bill is typically $330 a month. YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT! I know, I know...it's embarrassing. But I have three sons. Little buggers are expensive.
