Can I Live without Television To Save Money?

The other night, as I was watching my boyfriend watch television, I was reminded again of how television can induce a mind-numb state. He was supposed to be reading up on financial matters or anything to prepare for his up and coming interview at a financial/investments company.

Then, I had an idea that by cutting out television, I would save about 60 dollars each month AND save valuable time for both me and him, forcing us to perform more beneficial tasks, such as reading, working out, etc.

We would still have the DVD player and could get Netflix subscription again (the one DVD turnaround), so we would still have easy entertainment when we choose to.

I turned towards him and proposed my plan...and he looked at me as if I had pulled the rug out from under him. So, the television subscription will continue but I will try again in a couple months, hehe.


  1. Hello “budget living in orange county” author,

    As a money fanatic & money miser saver I came across your website/blog....

    Some really great posts but why have you stopped!!?

    Anyhow I have a little offer for you....

    The company I work for would like to pay you to put a text link to a credit card site on your blog. I see you have other deals already and would love to join them on the same better terms?!

    The website is called and we will be launching a new fantastic looking credit card review and comparison service which is free to our customers; advertising with sites like your should be great for our profile.

    So let the bartering begin??!
