Are there any avenues to reduce our monthly iCloud Family Sharing Plan cost?

Our family currently has a 2TB iCloud subscription set to Family Sharing. We are currently using a total 248.5GB between the four of us. Clearly this is too much for a 200GB plan, but far less than the current 2TB plan. Apple don’t seem to offer anything in between:

Australia3 (AUD)
50GB: $1.49
200GB: $4.49
2TB: $14.99
iCloud storage plans and pricing
When you sign up for iCloud, you automatically get 5GB of free storage. If you need more space in iCloud, you can upgrade to a larger storage plan.

Is there any avenues to reduce our monthly cost? 2 x 200GB plans would be $9.98 ($5.01 saving per month) - is this possible to do and share the 400GB data pool?
Alternatively I think we‘ll have to look at individual (not Family Shared) subscriptions - 200GB or myself and I think 3 x 50GB for the other three - total cost $8.96 ($5.03 saving per month).

Welcome to iMore

I agree there should be another option but if the current Subscription is working well you should consider staying put with your current plan
