Cable Television

I read recently about someone who was working to get out of debt. He said he cut out cable television, saving him $60 a month in his area. Well, I haven't had cable for over 2 years. It was just too expensive to begin with here! Instead, I purchase a season of a television show I like periodically. I do this once every two or three months, and the purchase is less than cable and it's not something that I'm spending money on every month, saving me tons over cable.
The important thing to remember is that cable TV is a luxury. You don't NEED it. I have to have background noise for my sanity. I'm the oldest of 5 kids and now live on my own. I'm used to having noise around me all the time. What I did was when I first moved here was buy some rabbit ears. You don't have to pay any subscription and you can get all the major networks. I realize this isn't for everyone, but when you are struggling just to make ends meet, you have to make some sacrifices. For someone like me who can't find anything that he likes on TV, this is perfect!
