I also had plenty of time to learn another language (Japanese), play guitar, play sorts, hike, kayak, go out to eat, socailize, etc, etc,. Of all the things for people to complain about in terms of saving money cable tv shouldn’t even be on your radar. Your car and your home. If you’re home right now…stop…look around you and out in your driveway…run some simple numbers in your head what you’re paying…money pits. Did you really need that house or car or could you have saved 10 thousand or so on the home and a hundreds, if not thousands, for “cheaper” ones? If that’s too painful… Look at what you eat for take-out and buy at grocery stores. You can easily save $ a day (the cost of cable tv 200 channel package) by insignifant adjustments on your grocery bill or take-out.
