Am saving and learning

Last week I called the cable company and downgraded my cable package to basic cable. This means I have only the local channels. This will reduce my monthly bill by at least $25 per month. I am always looking for ways to reduce my expenses each month.

The great thing is that I have rediscovered PBS. Last night I watched two shows and learned so much. The funny thing is that I used to be a PBS junkie while in college. Being stuck in the dorms during winter was not fun. I also watched PBS a lot when doing research for classes.

So now I am saving money and learning so much more.

i was just saying to myself , cable is too damn expensive - i pay 100 a month for cable, phone and internet - while some may think thats not bad i think 100 bucks a month for luxury items is alot - especially when im in debt.

anywho.. thanks for stopping by

Thanks Leighann.

@Me I have the same package and it was over 100 with all the taxes and stuff. I am waiting for the first bill to see what it looks like.

Can't you just get TV over the airwaves for free in NYC??? I grew up in suburban NJ and we got channels 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13 from the antennae, and it all came in clear enough. My father would have had a stroke at the idea of PAYING for tv!
