Those little changes alone netted me almost $300 extra per month. Now, whether or not you can live without a television and cable is another entirely different question. My friends and co-workers have looked at me like I had two heads when I tell them that I own no television. The upside is that it forces me to talk to my wife more, and as it turns out, she is pretty cool.
If I could find a better alternative to cable TV, I would. Over-the-air sucks in our area. Some shows are available online, but not all. As soon as something better and cheaper comes along, I'm ditching cable.
