Cancelled Satellite TV

November 17th, 2010 at 03:18 pm

Today I reduced our monthly bills by $109, and it felt great. Our 2-year contract was up last month. It's something I've been thinking about doing for a while now but kept talking myself out of it.

After watching Downsized, I decided to cancel. The Bruce family met with a financial planner who questioned their cable bill as something of importance. It made me realize that the TV keeps me from doing a lot of stuff that needs to be done.

Years ago we had cable and my husband commented that he would get a lot more done if we didn't have it. I cancelled the next day. With less options on TV, we did more. When we moved, we could barely pick up any local channels. This was before the digital switch so the channels were grainy. Cable was not an option to us so we went with satellite TV. I have enjoyed it but feel it is the right time to let it go.

Now if I can cut $100 from our budget weekly, that'd be awesome.
