Imagine taking the time spent watching television and devoting that to something worthwhile. Suddenly you have free time available to spend with loved ones or on developing new skills. No cable or dish means having one less bill to pay each month. If you want to watch a movie visit your local Redbox or video store and rent one.

The decision to stop watching TV may feel uncomfortable or radical but after seven years without TV I can attest to not missing it. And news? You can check online. If there’s anything newsworthy your friends or family will let you know. Make a resolution to simplify your life by calling your cable provider and canceling their services!
