The Mr. is obsessed with Dave Ramsey. I'm coming around. I like the part of organizing the budget and all that stuff. I just don't like the not spending money part.
We have whittled our expenses down but our "home entertainment budget" was ridiculous.
$12 a month for XM radio
$125 a month for internet and cable
$26 a month for a landline phone just for TiVo.
I called XM to cancel and they gave us 3 months for free. I have an appointment in 3 months on my calendar to cancel.
I cancelled our current cable & internet. I re-signed with another company for high speed internet for $25 mo. since they are partners with our cell phone company. We can then use hulu.com for our Mad Men fix.
I cancelled the land line. I will miss you TiVo. You don't even know.
I also signed up for Netflix to keep us from going crazy.
Our new budget line is $25 + $8= $33 instead of $163. Dave would be proud.
