Getting Rid of Cable to Save Money

June 4, 2015

Dear Cathy:

My cable bill at Comcast is usually around $200 to $250.00 a month.  I work during the day time and go to school at night so I realize I don’t need all these extra channels on my TV.  I am thinking about getting rid of cable in order to put some extra money in my pocket.  What are some of my options to watch movies and television programs? Holding on to my money, Virginia

Dear Holding On To Money:

Getting rid of cable is a great idea.  It will definitely put some extra money in your pocket.  Many people should rethink their cable bill.  Since most neighborhood Blockbusters have closed down, many people are watching along with Instant Video Streaming, and other paid services which only cost a few dollars a month.

Nowadays people don’t have time to sit down and watch television shows so they are catching many regular TV shows and movies on these media outlets.  Instead of television, many people are watching shows on ipads, laptops and phones.  

To save money you can also watch FREE shows and movies online at   Hulu Plus,, is not FREE or use Red Box, to rent one dollar DVDs.  You can also watch movies and videos at and pick up free movies from libraries.

To put more money in your pocket read "Recession Survival Guide: How To Get Back Into the Driver's Seat" -- available as an e-book or paperback.
