Money Saving tip #2
Have you ever thought about dropping your cable or satellite provider? I pondered on this for almost a year. We were paying $170 for basic cable, dvr, 2 box’s, cable internet and home phone. Finally I had enough with our cable provider, they were raising our rates every year. I decided to drop cable and our home phone. That was $130 a month in savings, that is $1,560 a year. We have not missed it one bit, and we have enjoyed the extra savings. It has actually made our family closer. With all the extra money I have noticed we go to the movies and we buy videos more.
Don’t think we are totally with out television. We do have a digital antenna (scored that on eBay for $7). We also stream a lot of stuff on the computer and on our ipad. Did you know you can watch Disney Junior, Disney XD, Disney Channel, ABC Family, and ABC on the internet? If you own an apple product that streams you can stream all of your apps thru an Apple TV.
If you are serious on getting out of debt or just saving money, I highly recommend thinking about giving cable a boot.
