We’re saving $123.13 per month!

A couple months ago Janell and I decided to pull the plug on cable TV.  The $215.47 bill for cable and internet just didn’t make sense for us…

The fact of the matter is, we don’t watch that much on TV, and what we do watch is available on Hulu.  Combine that with Netflix (two subscriptions we already had) and for about $25/month we have everything we need.

Note:  I’ll have to upgrade to Hulu Live (an additional $38, I think) for football season to keep Janell happy. ;-b

The decision to cut the TV portion of our service (we still need internet) wasn’t really about saving the 123 bucks a month, although that’s a sweet savings, especially compounded annually…

The decision was really more about, “is this serving us?”  Meaning, as we look at all of our goals in life (personally and professionally)…

  1. Does this expense serve us?  What’s the ROI?
  2. Could we put this dollar amount (and the time flipping mindlessly through channels or watching X just because that’s all that’s on right now) towards something that serves us better?  Produces a better ROI…

By the way, the answers are:

  1. Not really.  Not much.

I don’t want to go on a rant here…but I will.  ;-b

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say, “I can’t afford it” when it comes to health and fitness, whether that be a training membership, healthier food, and/or supplements…

…yet, I wonder how many of them are paying for things each month that don’t go used and/or aren’t serving their (stated) goals…

Hey, if you love TV and you truly get a lot out of having it, rock on!  

I’m not here to tell anyone how to spend their hard-earned money.

However, as a coach, I am here to ask the questions…

Are you spending your money in a way that’s best serving you and your family?

If so, awesome.

If not, no judgment.  Here’s a nudge to make some adjustments. 🙂

Oh, and some more expenses to look into are dining out, coffee shops, and alcohol…to name a few.  

Again, no judgment.  You do you.  

But, if you’re not happy with one area of your life, take a look at how the behaviors AND expenses of other areas are affecting it…
