in 2015 I moved out of the condo I was renting and wound up having to move to the only place I could find on such short notice which was an efficiency. Actually, it’s a master bedroom which is closed off from the main house. This wasn’t ideal, but I needed a place to live that would let me have my cats and dog. I thought, okay this is just temporary, 6 months, maybe a year max. 3 years later, I’m still there. Just can’t afford to move.
But, on the up-side, the place is small so I really don’t have to spend too much time keeping it clean and picked up. AND, free wi-fi. I don’t have cable, which I thought would be torture, but I’ve actually come to appreciate not having to spend that obscene amount of money monthly for 500 channels, of which I only watch 5.
What do I watch? I have Netflix, of course, Amazon Prime, YouTube Red, and I also have a monthly subscription for Audible. I’m a little late in the game, but I have discovered Podcasts. I’ve been without cable for 3 years, and I really haven’t missed it. At first, though, I was thinking, “OMG what the hell am I going to do now?” But really, I love not having cable. In fact, when I finally have a normal place to live I won’t be getting cable again. I will set myself up with a good internet plan and that’s it.
If anyone is thinking about cutting the cable cord, DO IT!!! You won’t be sorry.
