What would you do with an extra $100 a month?

My wife and I are a two income family who recently found themselves down to one income. With four small kids in the house, a 5 year old and 3 year old triplets, we can't afford to have my wife go back to work. But we had to make some changes with a 40% drop in income.

Once change that we made that was surprisingly painless was dropping our premium cable channels. We were actually going to drop cable altogether but we have a pretty good deal on a bundle through our cable provider. For only $2 more a month get to keep our internet access and basic cable. Yes, we could have skipped basic cable but $2 a month is worth it compared to having to deal with the hassle of installing an antenna.

Since we made the change, we learned one very important thing. We should have done this a long time ago! A lot of what we enjoy watching is on broadcast TV. What's more is that we are watching it in HD; we didn't have that option with our regular digital cable box.

We are now saving $100 a month painlessly. Through this blog I am going to share how you can do this too. If you're looking to save some money, then you're in the right place!
