Cut the Cable!

Why cut the cable?

A few years back, we were like many other families out there paying a lot of money a month for cable. We would pay $75 a month for TV channels we didn’t even watch. There were only about 10 channels in our cable line up that we would watch and then one month we got notice that we were going to lost about half those because of a contract dispute. I was already uneasy and frustrated about paying the much money a month for only 10 channels but when we lost the other channels, I had had enough. I was on the phone that evening cutting the cable! We ended up getting a streaming device and use that now. We get to watch what we want, whenever we would like, and no more contract disputes or outrageous monthly cable bills to pay. If you are interested in cutting your cable, check out some of these tips…
