1. Cable TV. Cable is incredibly expensive and thanks to Netflix, Hulu, Roku boxes, Apple TV - the list goes on and on - as long as you're paying for Internet you've got all the television programming you need.
2. Landline service. With just about everyone in America owning a cell phone that follows them everywhere the need for a hard landline in our homes is a useless expense. Admit it, all you get are courtesy calls anyhow.
3. GPS Devices. Demand for these devices is way down now that so many cars are coming equipped with their own navigation systems built into the dash and a range of apps available for free to get us from A to B.
4. DVD and Blu Ray Players. People are buying less and less DVDs and Blu Ray disks and instead are streaming their movies online and through services like Netflix. People can use computers and their gaming devices for dics, anyhow.
5. Hotel rooms. Hotel costs keep climbing around the US and it is making services like Airbnb where you can rent a fully furnished apartment for cheaper more appealing.
6. 2-year phone contracts. There are plenty of phone services now with far less costs and no contract tying you to the same phone for two years - which in mobile time is forever. Check out Best Buy, Wal-mart and Metro PCS.
7. Desktop and laptop computers. If you own and laptop, a tablet and a cell phone - tell us, which do you use the least? Unless you're a graphic designer there really isn't a reason to have a laptop, let alone a desktop, anymore.
8. Extra leg room in economy. Don't pay extra for a seat in coach with more legroom. For just about the same cost you can get moved up to the business class, and that's a lot more bang for your buck.
9. Credit cards with points or miles programs. The annual fees for these cards are not worth the incentives for points and miles.
10. Digital cameras. Between your smart phone and your tablet, do you really need a bulky, low-end digital camera?
