I've Been Cable Free for 4 Years and Here's How

While in debt, I cut cable and haven't looked back. It's easier than you think especially with new services out on the market. One of my favorites is Sling TV, which allows you to watch live TV on the internet. It's awesome. Check out my Sling TV review.

    Hmm I’d be interested to see what the median spend at Starbucks is per year per American. It seems like the $1k/year figure would be really inflated by people who go there every day (or more than once a day!).

      That is what happens when you take averages.

    I love the infographic. I never spend on lottery…I couldn’t imagine that number. $145 per year, per person in America…wow! What a business!

    “You’re not the blood of the dragon, you WILL get emphysema.” Best anti-smoking quote EVER!

    I still haven’t watched this show, been catching up on Fargo, Boardwalk Empire, and Suits, but as soon as I can, I’m going to find out what the craze is about 🙂 ~Brenda

    I love this infographic! 🙂 I was sick last month and my doctor told me that I need to drink my medicines and vitamins for 2 months and it’s very expensive, so I was just thinking maybe I should choose a generic medicine because they are lesser than branded medicines.

    I love the infograohic. Some of your points are awesome like quitting the smoking and cutting out cable tv because those things dont aid to us financially or emotionally. I dont agree with cutting out vacations and yoga though because we have to have fun in our lives. For that I would suggest creating another stream of income to fund the fun side of our lives.

      There are some things I agree with and others that I don’t as well.
