Good day everyone! Hope all is going well. I feel so proud of myself. I finally cut one of the cords. I know. I know. You are wondering, what is she talking about this time? Well, that awful cable bill. Every month when I receive that bill, I state the obvious, this bill is too darn high. Why am I spending so much money on cable? The monthly bill is about $172.00 per month for three cable boxes and the phone.
Well, I finally decided to get rid of the landline phone since I never use it. In fact, I don’t even have a phone hooked up to the modem. In fact, I don’t even have a phone TO hook up to the modem. This thing was costing me $10.00 a month. Cable company, please remove. REMOVED.
I then took the plunge and cut the cord to one of my boxes. I purchased an inexpensive indoor antenna and picked up 16 local channels plus I can stream other shows with my Smart TV. This change saved me an additional $10.00 a month. So in essence, I have saved myself a total of $280.00 for the whole year. YES!! Imagine what I can do with an additional $280.00. Whatever I want. I feel liberated. Alright, alright, I still have two more cords to cut but I am not there yet. The day shall come when I will find the courage to go cold turkey. You wait and see. I will let you know that I am living cable free and saving my money!
Goal: To live cable free and save my money.
