Improve your life in 2015 by disconnecting your TV service

Two years ago when I separated from my wife and moved into my new place I made the conscious decision to not get TV service.

It's expensive and is filled with messages that mess with your mind.  I do enjoy films and dramas from time to time but this void can be filled with services like Netflix which cost a tiny $8 each month.

My challenge to you for 2015 is to cancel your cable or satellite service and put the money in a jar!

Happy New Year!

Why You Should Stop Watching T.V. and What to Replace it With

Big George is watching youMy wife and I have reduced our television viewing to roughly four hours a week: two hourly dramas and maybe two more hours combined throughout the week. I believe that it won’t be too long before we turn the television off for good. Why? It’s too expensive. Here are ten reasons why.

True Cost of Watching Television

Cable / satellite bills

Our cable bill used to cost us roughly $60 a month. That adds up to $720 a year spent just to get more programming. Three years worth of that and we’re looking at a very nice vacation. Five or six years of that, put into a savings account, potentially replaces a car.


We had two televisions, and they would each be on an average of four hours a day. Given a cost of $0.10 per kilowatt hour, and the fact that the smaller television used about 100 watts and the larger one used about 160 watts, that meant we were using a bit over a kilowatt hour each day. There’s another $40 a year that vanished. [CLICK FOR FULL ARTICLE]
