Dollar Days

SAVE MONEY NOW
Love TV, but not a fan of your cable bill? Greg Karp, author of The 1-2-3 Money Plan: The Three Most Important Steps to Saving and Spending Smart, offers tips to cut the boob tube expenses.

Downgrade your service. If you’re not watching all of the premium channels or feel as if nothing is on, downgrade to basic cable. If you like a show that’s on HBO or Showtime, order that channel when it’s in season, and cancel that channel when the season ends.

Opt for a mail-in movie service such as Netflix and Blockbuster. You can watch the exact movies and programs offered on premium channels—but have them delivered to your home, for a price that’s cheaper than cable. Plus, you get to watch the DVD extras!

Use the Internet. Log on and watch commercial-free and cost-free episodes on Hulu, YouTube and network websites. All you need are a computer and an Internet connection.

Go to the library. Tax money funds your local library, which offers more than books. Libraries carry the newest releases, old classics and children’s films—for no charge. PS: Reading is also free!
