Weekly Money Tip! Are you getting sick of paying so much for cable or satellite? We definitely were. Aaron and I called and cut our cable back to just the basic channels which saved us $42 per month or $504 per year (we only had expanded …basic originally). Then we bought ourselves a Roku to stream Netflix to our TV. The Roku was paid for in just two months of cable savings and has hundreds of other free channels to watch. We also bought a basic antenna for around $25 and get 11 free channels with this. It also has 3 great PBS channels which I really love! Check out this great video about what other options are out there vs cable.
