Bev Szamborski I, too, do my streaming through Roku. True, I cannot get all the channels I did with cable, but I have learned to adjust. And, that extra $60 a month can be used for necessities! I have absolutely no regrets from dropping that cable bill!
Crystal Milliken My husband and I gave up cable tv several years ago when we bought a ROKU. It is the best thing I have ever invested in! It is a small box (paid around $50 for it at walmart) and it hooks up to the tv like a dvd player. Then you can stream movies/shows to your tv via netflix, amazon or hulu. I have amazon prime which is $40 a year and I get not only free shows/movies but free shipping when I buy on amazon. Then I have netflix which I only pay $7 a month for. We have saved hundreds over the year buy getting rid of cable. I would never go back!
Bev Szamborski I'm even more frugal. I refuse to pay the Coinstar commission, so the cahier gets my pennies as is. I try not to give more than 15 cents at a time as I'm not really trying to make their job more difficult.
Dorann Winburn A little bit less than a year ago we decided that we didn't need cable at our house any more. They were charging us nearly a hundred dollars a month. We now have Netflix and watch a lot of programs directly on the websites of the different channels. It is a great way for us to save hundreds every year.
Shelly Ann My husband found a great deal for work clothes. He is a bender or a blacksmith by trade and his clothes get really ugly black stains on them. At work they have a uniform delivery service but they charge him and he is always getting the wrong uniforms back. He found a place online and bout 6 pairs of pants, 10 shirts and 2 jackets for $54. I think its a great deal! Buying those clothes at walmart would have costed quite a bit more and he is never fortunate enough to find clothes at thrift stores.
Amy S I live frugally to help save money for my young family. My husband and I aren't where we want to be career wise and unfortunately we don't not have much money to spend a month. I cut back as much on groceries as possible as well as hardly ever buying clothes or other miscellaneous things that we don't not need.
Darlene Atkinson I have been saving money by not buying any clothes. I am trying to lose weight and feel that if I buy clothes I may give up. I want to grow a garden but I live in a trailer and have no yard. I miss having a big yard, but I cannot afford to move right now.
