Have you ever considered how much it costs at your house to keep your family entertained? I hear all of this lobbying to keep the Internet free and to keep network television free. However, neither are free at our house. You obviously have to pay to have Internet service at your house, and we cannot pick up a signal for even the local TV stations, So, television is not free either. To save money I searched online for how to save on cable Internet bundles at home. I not only found good bundled package prices on Internet and TV service, but found a much lower price overall than what we were paying.
The last few years we have had one rate increase after another for cable and Internet. Our house phone line costs kept going up too even tough it is not a big expense. I found bundles where you can have cheap home phone service thrown in. Some deals you see are for a year. Just make sure you do not have to keep it for a year. Make sure the low price is offered for that period of time with no commitment. I have no problem with saving a whole lot of money for a year. However, the price we got was not a promotional price on cable and Internet bundles. It was the regular price, and it was significantly lower than what we were paying now.
We look at our household expenses every quarter. We are the ones who make the calls to see if we can save money on car insurance, house insurance, utilities, cable, Internet and anything else that comes with a monthly bill. There is no sense in throwing money away. Hang onto it for a rainy day or even a vacation. It is your money, so why just give it away when you do not have to?
