…than to cancel it. Kinda weird, but there you have it.
With my job change and such, we’re trying to cost unnecessary costs. And since we can watch our favorite shows through CBS or Fox online, we don’t need cable tv (oh, and we get the Fox shows through regular tv anyway; CBS is a little fuzzy, but then cable CBS is too).
So Micah called up the cable company. When he asked to cancel it, he found out that canceling our cable tv could double our bill for internet.
We’re getting special savings because we signed up for them together. But if we cancel the cable, we lose the special savings on the internet. And with his teaching job, our blogging, and my plans of finding freelance work online, that’s not really an option.
So there you have it. Apparently the obvious choice isn’t always the frugal one. Of course, we’re monitoring our bills to find out when the special ends and then we’ll reevaluate.
