Four and Half Years Without Cable!
Here is the link to the original post, I still remember this very clearly. Den was NOT A HAPPY MAN! His exact words were, "I would rather you mutilate my arm than get rid of TV." And look 4.5 years later and his arm is still intact. Oh there have been a few bumps along the road, like the Super bowl. But I said, lets go to a local bar and watch it. I'm nice like that plus all the bars around here have gaming. Ok, it was more about me gambling than about the game but does he really need to know this?
And the nice thing is we have saved $2160 since shutting it off! It makes me wonder what else I can shut off and save money on. Water? Electric? Heating? Our budget is pretty bare bones the only extras are the $30/month health club membership that Den flat out refuses to get rid of or use. We don't have a home phone anymore but we do have the cell phones. The cell bill is about $198/month but when I get the phones paid for it should drop down to $110ish/month. I figure that is pretty cheap since we don't have a home phone and the kids don't have home phones either. I'm not sure how much a month it is for a home phone but it is looking like 4 cell phone lines might be cheaper than having separate home phones.
Have you cut something out? Did it work out or did you turn it back on?
