The cable guy wont be coming to our house!
We finally took the leap and ditched our cable tv…
We have been thinking about pulling the plug for a long time, but wondered how we could live without our DVR and all of our favorite shows at our fingertips whenever we wanted them…
But every month, when I would get the cable bill, I just knew it was not how we wanted to spend our money.
We always talked about spending more time talking and hanging out together at night instead of zoning out in front of the t.v. but somehow we just couldn’t bring ourselves to do it.
Well the day came and we pulled the plug…
It has been great!
We bought a $10 rabbit-ear antennae (which gives us 10+ channels!) and signed onto Netflix and we are in great shape! We can still veg out in front of the t.v. if we want to, but we are not slaves to the cable bill.Now the nagging feeling I have when I don’t get the bill is ” Why didn’t we do this sooner??”
I guess we can never totally win!
