Cable - A "utility"? Unneccesary in this day of the internet. Cable can run out the roof expensive. Try to unplug yourself. Start by simply reducing your costs, or go cold turkey and cut it off completely. It can save you hundreds of dollars a year. There are many shows that you can watch on the internet for free. At www.hulu.com, there are tons of episodes, extra clips, movies to watch. Youtube is also a good site. Watching an episode here and there off the internet and cutting yourself down to DVD's or old VCR tapes can make a world of difference.
Our cable bill was $66 dollars a month; basic expanded cable, plus internet, cutting the cable at $40 dollars and only paying $26 for internet, I will save $480 this year. If I were to go real cheap and cut our internet, or change it over to dial up, I would save $792 this year.
