Cable TV. EVERY family can avoid this, especially now in the summer time. My family and I were paying over $125 a month for our cable/DVR service.
I got fed up with the high bill and not being able to trim it down without losing things that I just LOVED...so I got rid of the WHOLE THING!
There are SO many options out there that will help ease the "burden" of not having 100+ channels at your leisure.
Netflix is my #1 recommendation. You can watch past and present TV shows and TONS of movies. All streaming from your gaming system (PS3, Wii or XBOX 360) or Apple TV or your Internet-enabled TV.
It was hard to cut that cable cord, but it is SO worth it! With the money we have saved in the past 5 months, we were finally able to afford a new deck off of our patio! And that is exactly where I am sitting on this gorgeous day, writing this post!
So, come join me! Let's see how much money you can keep in YOUR pockets instead of lining the Cable exec's pockets with more money than they know what to do with!
