Finally Reduced the Cable Service

December 2nd, 2017 at 04:02 pm

I normally budget $80 for groceries , I'm thinking about reducing this since I always have money left over each budget period.

This new budget period, I had budgeted $70 for groceries, but I'm going to use $20 for a gift card for the single ladies at church.

I was trying to cancel/reduce some of the cable services. I see that the SO is onboard now. I told him I was going with the lesser plan other wards he can pay the difference. He said to do what ever makes me comfortable. I informed him that I'm good with what ever he decides and to just know I'm not paying for the premium channels for cable. Needless to say he told me to cancel. The bill is still high but it's much cheaper than before. I was told that we'll get a $43 credit on the next bill, that should bring the first bill to $94. Split by 2 that's about $47, yay 😊. The difference of about $67 I can add to my snowball.

Between the two of us, going forward after the credit, the new monthly bill should be about about $80 a piece. The extra $30 I'm saving every month will be added to the snowball. I'm going to look at getting a Firestick, so that I can cancel everything. I'm feeling accomplished.

I had to call Att&t twice to get this done but I hung in there.

    Home antennas are about $50 on Amazon. Mine picks up about 60 free HD channels. I also pay $9.99 for Netflix and $9.00 for Amazon prime. $20.00/month and I still get channels I don't have time to watch.

    Does your bill include the internet and a landline? If so, that is a reasonable price. If it's cable or satellite TV only, I would shop around or get rid of the TV service altogether.

    Hi Another Reader, it's internet and cable. I canceled the phone
