How much are you paying for your cable bill? If you haven’t looked it over in a while, you are probably paying too much! I recently decided to trim down my monthly bills and #1 on my list was my cable bill. Did you know I was paying over $190 per month for cable?! Of course you didn’t and neither did I! Why didn’t I know, because I wasn’t paying attention. I have my bills on automatic payments so I won’t have to worry about whether or not I pay them on time.

If they liked their “loyal” customers, they would offer us the same awesome deals they offer “new customers only”, but I digress) they really nailed me. It jumped from $132 to $194.25! Yikes! It was time to do some research!
