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?

Would have have.  We finally got DishTV about 5 months ago.  We didn't have Cable or anything except an antenna that got 1 local channel for over 6 years before that.  It was just to darn expensive.

We live without cable daily. We have just recently started using netflix but we'd shut it off if need be. Only 8.00 a month! :D
