I Cut One of the Cords

Good day everyone! Hope all is going well. I feel so proud of myself. I finally cut one of the cords. I know. I know. You are wondering, what is she talking about this time? Well, that awful cable bill. Every month when I receive that bill, I state the obvious, this bill is too darn high. Why am I spending so much money on cable? The monthly bill is about $172.00 per month for three cable boxes and the phone.

Well, I finally decided to get rid of the landline phone since I never use it. In fact, I don’t even have a phone hooked up to the modem. In fact, I don’t even have a phone TO hook up to the modem. This thing was costing me $10.00 a month. Cable company, please remove. REMOVED.

I then took the plunge and cut the cord to one of my boxes. I purchased an inexpensive indoor antenna and picked up 16 local channels plus I can stream other shows with my Smart TV. This change saved me an additional $10.00 a month. So in essence, I have saved myself a total of $280.00 for the whole year. YES!! Imagine what I can do with an additional $280.00. Whatever I want. I feel liberated. Alright, alright, I still have two more cords to cut but I am not there yet. The day shall come when I will find the courage to go cold turkey. You wait and see. I will let you know that I am living cable free and saving my money!

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and caretaker, and I also work outside of the home. Life has its struggles but I am not complaining. It could always be worse. Many lessons learned on my journey and many more to come--I am sure. God has a sense of humor and I have certainly learned how to laugh at myself. You should too-it is quite therapeutic. After all, some things we cannot change so why not enjoy a good laugh at our own expense. See you soon.
