Thrifty Thursday!

Thrifty Tip #42:  Cut the cable and save money!

Try these tips to trim your television costs:

*Use an antenna and get television the old-fashioned way.
*Connect your computer to your television and use sites like Hulu, NBC, ABCThe Food Network or many others to watch all your favorite shows!

*Subscribe to Netflix for $10 a month for the ability to live-stream thousands of television shows, cartoons, movies, and documentaries.  You'll love it! 
*Take a break from the tv, grab a good book, and enrich your mind!

~A special thank you to my friend Liz for sharing her All You magazine with me!  
I can vouch for all of these tips!~

ARE THERE FULL EPISODES OF SHOWS ON THE FOODNETWORK??? (sorry I hate when people type in all caps...the thought just makes me giddy.)

We have loved having Netflix. It's such an amazing deal! But not like I watch any tv. I just read. All day long. :)

We have netflix too! You can get a disk (free) from netflix to stream stuff through your Wii or xbox 360. Works awesome.

Amen, sista! And it's much easier not having cable when several of your friends are doing it too! Peer pressure isn't always bad... ;)

No cable for us for almost 3 years (which was a BIG deal to my hubby to get rid of)! Netflix users for almost a year. So worth the savings AND we watch WAY less TV!! LOVE IT!
