You’ll find websites for every hobby and interest. Premium TV services let you stream endless entertainment programming, genealogy sites help you make a family tree, and alumni sites reunite you with classmates. It’s easy to get out a credit card and sign up.

Keep a close eye on those monthly bills, though. Are you still studying Spanish with those online lessons? Are you really reading your hometown newspaper online? Could you get by with the free options in “7 Free Streaming Services to Watch While You’re Stuck at Home” or “10 Ways to Research Your Family Tree for Free“?

Stick with subscriptions you use. Cancel those you don’t. If you don’t want to do the work of reviewing your bills and canceling subscriptions you no longer use, a service like Trim can do it for you.
