No More Cable

So getting rid of cable has been in the back of my mind for a while. We watched a lot of TV….a lot. I called last year but they talked me into keeping a lower tier of channels since it was only $4 more than just internet by itself. Good deal right? LOL But this time the difference in cable and internet and just internet was $70!!!


The kids pretty much exclusively watch Netflix when they watch something and for me I watch Netflix and those shows I did watch I could get on Hulu. Sooooo…I called back and cancelled the cable and signed up for Hulu.

So not only are we saving $60 a month now but we are watching less TV. We aren’t just turning on the TV just because, we are watching those shows we really want to watch. We’ve been playing more games at night as a family, spending quality time as a couple, not just sitting and watching a show in silence, and I’ve been getting more work done. It’s really been great!

So now we only have a handful of shows that we watch since we are only watching ones we LOVE! What are some of your favorite shows to watch so we can try a few new ones out.

    We have talked about doing this, but the word ‘bundle’ always comes up when they persuade us to stay with them because of our internet. I, of course. Can’t give that up. We don’t watch a lot of t.v. I do like to follow Dancing with the Stars and America’s got Talent. Keep enjoying your family without the distraction. 😀

      Yes, same here. He kept saying ‘but you save money when you bundle’. And I kept telling him that’s not correct. I was spending a total of $130 (cable, internet and netflix) a month. Now I’m paying around $70 (internet, netlfix, and hulu) and I am still watching all the shows I watched before (including DWTS). I was so worried I’d miss tv, but like I said, I’m getting all the shows I really want to watch and also I find I’m not just turning on the tv and watching random shows (and wasting time lol).
