Why We Don’t Have Cable and We Are Much Happier Without It

Shortly after moving into our house 9 years ago, my husband and I decided that we wanted to lower our monthly bills. In order to do this we decided that our cable was one of the things we could cut and we would be saving quite a bit of money in doing so. Yes that means that we don't have cable and haven't for the last 9 years. We are much happier without it too. Not only would it save us money, but we have been quite appalled at the things that were starting to be on cable television. We try … [Read more...]
