To continue with the series I started yesterday on ways I save on my bills. I will explain ways that I save on my cable bill. You can have your favorite shows and not have a huge cable bill to go with it.
We only subscribe to 10 Mbps Internet through our cable company, it is plenty fast enough for our family on most days and at $50 a month it is a huge savings from the $110 a month we were paying to have the internet plus digital cable.
We have an HDTV and have a decent HDTV antenna hooked up that picks up a good 30 local channels, including all the network channels, so for most cases this covers any tv watching needs we might have, why pay to have 100s of channels with nothing on when you can have 30 channels for free with nothing on LOL.
Next we subscribe to Netflix for on demand movies for $7.99 a month and Hulu Plus for on demand tv shows for $7.99 a month. Sure at times I might have to wait a day to see my favorite tv shows, but with this family it works out SO much better to watch them on my own schedule anyways 😉
We also make use of our Apple TV to enjoy movies in my husbands iTunes collection. He is very good about putting movies we want in wish lists then keeps an eye for when they go on sale and buys them then.
So for basically $66 a month we get all the internet we need and on demand movies and tv shows.
When you are on a tight budget, these little things really add up to help each month and after a month or so going this route it really doesn’t bother you much.
