Cancelled Dish Network

December 9th, 2010 at 08:42 pm

I have noticed that we hardly ever watch regular TV. Since Lost concluded, there's just not much on that's a priority. We love our Netflix account, we use that quite a bit, and it is very economical. So I called and cancelled, and that means I now have an extra $40 a month.

I'm working on my budget and will post it soon. I imagine that Mint will point out what is realistic and what works, and that will help me fine-tune as I go along.

Brown-bagged it again today, shaping up to be another no spend. Although, I did give my nephew $3 for bus fare this morning.

    Good job! We live with out cable and have for our entire 14 year marriage. Netflix is great since we love movies.

    Mint doesn't point out what is realistic and what works. But it is a good tools for sure. You can keep track of all your finances from one place. If you never did budgeting, keep an eye on your spending trends. After a couple of months, you will know how much are you spending in which category. Make that your budget and keep adjusting as and when you realize cutting spending.

    I think that ditching the cable/satellite is one of the best moves that many people can make, as it leads to a lot more free time that can be spent doing other things. It also offers some insurance of a little more quality time together, which doesn't hurt. Enjoy those savings, as well!

    Good for you! When we bought our house 1-1/2 years ago we did not have cable put in. We installed an antennae and we watch free OTA (over-the-airwaves) TV so our monthly bill is 0.
