We all like to save money, it lets our dollars go farther.   ** all prices are as of this writing (Feb 2023)

Here are a few ideas to save money on a variety of areas:

Saving on Cable TV

I finally got tired of paying the big C or X lots of money for cable television -- the bill can easily go over $100 per month and I only enjoy a few channels.  I ditched the standard cable TV and got a streaming TV service.  There are a variety of services out there, I've found the best (for me) is YouTubeTV.  

  • YouTubeTV For $65/month I get all of the channels I need.  It just streams over the internet.  This saves me about $60/month and the service is better :)

If you are categorized as "low income" most internet providers offer a special rate (or possibly free) for internet.  

Saving on Cell Phone Service

With everyone in the family having at least one connected device, the bill can become astronomical on a monthly basis.  Herer are two options to save money with cell services:

  • T-Mobile:  This is a post paid service -- IE you pay after you use the service. 
  • Tello: This is a prepaid service -- IE you pay before you use it.
