Cutting out cable helps


I figured I would make a thread for this since people seem to always be asking for tips. Something that helped me out big time last year with paying off debt was getting rid of cable. I kept my internet and phone but axing cable saved me nearly 70 dollars a month which I used to pay off a credit card. I have since switched to a new provider for my internet and saved an additional $20 a month so it all adds up!

Nice tip and I agree with you wholeheartedly. As much as I enjoyed watching shows in the evening it was just too costly. I ended up get getting a few streaming services and that suites me just fine. I pay $20 for the pair of them where cable was costing me $80 a month.

I would not be paying for cable if it wasn't for my wife and our youngest who has to watch their show every day. I have expressed that we could save money but they both don't want alternatives.

More and more people are doing this. I never had it. I only ever had internet and I was just fine with that. I think it is hard for people who are older who have been with TV for a good 20+ years. I grew up with it but lost interest in it when I was in my teens. Started working when I was 16 as well so just didn't have time for it.
