What happened when we Ditched Cable TV

What happened when we ditched Cable TVWe recently made the switch to no cable. Let that sink in for a second. No cable TV, at all.

It’s been interesting but very liberating. First and foremost, in our household no one really has time for television. Realistically, it’s like spending money you don’t have. I don’t have time for tv, so paying for it is adding the extra distraction I DONT NEED right now. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy tv. I love certain shows that shall remain nameless (cough, cough Homeland, Once Upon A Time and a good reality splurge on Bravo).

Here is what I’ve realized after switching off the boob tube for almost 2 weeks.

The amount of time I have for other things. In the past week alone I’ve completed projects I only talked about before.

I’ve spent more time WITH my kids (yes, that’s possible) and have allowed creative juices to flow for family activities. It’s been nice.

Oh, did I mention the quiet time at night. I can just sit in the peace and quiet.

If I REALLY want some entertainment I have to fish out a movie from our stash,  and that’s fine by me. I just now have zero obligation to networks that monopolized my time before. I would get so caught up on what we HAD to watch at whatever time, it was a little bit crazy.

For the time being there is still Redbox…but for the foreseeable future, we are cable free and saving a few bucks along the way!

Happy New Year!
