As most of you know, frugal living extends far beyond couponing and groceries. For me this means saving as much as possible in as many areas as possible while at the same time improving our quality of life.
One of the things that we do a few times per year is review our expenses. I literally take about 30 minuites to sit down and review every item that is coming out of our bank account. After doing that I set out on a mission to reduce those expenses as much as possible. One of the areas that I’ve been most successful in doing this is our cable bill. I’m not going to lie, I LOVE my Weather Channel, TLC, HGTV, and the Food Network. 🙂 For me those are luxuries that I’m not currently willing to give up…so, I make sure that I enjoy that luxury at the best price possible. The best way that I’ve found to do this is to be willing to be flexible with what service provider we are with. I have no problem switching to a company that provides a better value for our hard earned money!
It is that time of year again and I am just starting to review our bills. One of the companies that I plan to check into is DirecTV. We have a few friends who use their service and are pretty happy with it and the prices. At first look at their website, I’m pretty encouraged by their prices compared to our current Comcast bill. They are currently offering free instaltion, free HD or DVR receiver, and free shipping for the equiptment when signing up through their website. One of the packages also comes with free NFL Sunday ticket for 5 months…I think hubby will be excited about that part.
Do any of you currently have DirecTV? I’d love to hear what you think!
