One of my friends was complaining on Facebook about her bills and how it's SO expensive to live on your own. Another friend asked her what her expenses were and she had a LOT of unnecessary things and one of the most expensive things on her list was her cable TV with every single premium thing you can add on! When the friend told her she could cut that out and save over $300/mo right there, she said she couldn't live without cable TV, that it's a necessity! Yet she wants to complain about how broke she is? Could YOU live without cable TV?

I could, but I'd miss it. My family was very religious so most of the years before adulthood were without a TV. I love to read, so I'd just get more reading done.

Dh and I have never had cable that we paid for. (College had free cable and we live with a relative who has satellite) We had netflix for $8 a month. MUCH cheaper and we still had something to watch. That was before we had a child though. We hardly watch tv now.
