Considering the cost of a toothbrush, I think it's extreme (and gross) to share one amongst everyone.

When I began austerity measures in our household, we dropped cable TV (and oddly enough, my apartment was burglarized a month later, which took care of that problem of no cable or TV, ha) dropped our internet speed from a high MB package to basic (ATT basic dsl is 20 bucks a month), and started shopping at Aldi (which it appears you guys don't have in Canada.)

Those little changes alone netted me almost $300 extra per month. Now, whether or not you can live without a television and cable is another entirely different question. My friends and co-workers have looked at me like I had two heads when I tell them that I own no television. The upside is that it forces me to talk to my wife more, and as it turns out, she is pretty cool.
