Step one was to stop sending money to Team Past. So got rid of Sky and will be working on reducing spending on some other utilities.
But on a more positive note, I tried to figure out how to spend money on Team Future - people, organisations and companies who support good journalism, civil rights organisations, research, education and entertainment.
