I have to admit, that cable television has always been one of our splurges. We love to watch Food Network & HGTV. One night we were watching Food Network and I suddenly realized we were paying a lot of money to watch 2 channels. Our cable bill had also been slowly increasing each month so two weeks ago we cut back to just basic cable.
I was nervous that we would miss watching our 2 favorite networks but we didn't even miss the cable so this week I cut the cable all together and we purchased a converter box. By cutting the cable, we will be saving over $50 every month! That is over $600 a year!!
I think the reason that cutting the cable was so easy is because of all the options that are now available:
Cost = FREE
Watch TV shows instantly on your computer.
Cost = Starts at $7.99 a month
Get DVDs (movies & TV shows) in the mail or watch instantly with a Wii, Blu-Ray or a Streaming Device.
This is definitely our favorite option so far!
Cost = FREE
Our local library has a large selection of movies & tv shows available on DVD & VHS.
Do you pay for cable or use other television options? Leave a comment and let us know how you save money on TV!
