100 Days of Christmas Savings: Day 72, Stop watching TV

100daystvIf you live in one of the 48% of American households that have cable television, you’ve probably gotten used to the luxury of being able to watch what you want, when you want. However, your cable television is costing you more than you know when it’s Christmas time. First, look at how much you pay for cable TV. The average subscription is $100 per month, and that’s without specialty sports and entertainment packages.

You also spend more on electricity when you are constantly watching television. When you have cable, you’re more likely to just leave the television on for background noise. And of course, the commercials cost you money. How? Imagine this: your child sees a commercial for a brand new toy from their favorite franchise. Despite not knowing that the product existed 30 seconds ago, they now need it desperately.

Do yourself a favor and get rid of the cable television. You’ll save money on the bill itself, your electric bill, and the gadgets and toys your family sees on TV. You can add Hulu Plus and Netflix to your TV for just $16 a month, much less than the average cable TV bill.
