Peer Pressure in an Adult world and the beginning steps to simplifing

This world that we live in is such a complicated one sometimes. Recently I have disconnected the Cable,phone,and internet services. I am able to pick up internet service and we or should I say I have a cellphone so we have some connection to the outside world, but it has only been two weeks and I feel the pull to turn it back on. The big factor of turning it off is that it will save us about $100 a month. The past few weeks I have seen the kids have some good pure fun and bonding between the two of them. We borrow movies from the library and friends but i have heard some little comments such as " Why do we have a nice tv if we don't have cable to watch" And the push from outside family members don't help either. I also have canceled our garbage services being $40 a month to pick up our garbage, but now getting into the routine of bringing the garbage will be a challenge, however they have on site composting so I feel it will give us a better idea of what we are throwing away!! So there, there was a little verbal puking on the blog a.k.a as stuff that is floating in my head. So do you have any suggestions on Simplfing family life and how to get the family game for it and how to go through the transitions your self?? I have been reading more and knitting and it feels good!!
On a side not my cat taught me something this week, can you tell what it is?????

Have a great weekend All!
