OK so I cancelled the pest control service $33 saved. I downgraded my Internet to the economy, it's a little slower but it's only $24.95 a month. I left the cable alone at $55.50 a month. They did away with extended basic and the next one down is about $15 a month for channels 2-13 that I could pick up with an antenna. The new bill will be $72.95 before taxes with the $15 discount that runs through July. That's more than the special that I have now but the end bill will be less than this end bill. The regular bill before taxes on these is $87.95 a month. There went the money saved on pest control. I'm going to check into prepaid Internet and eventually cut the cable off as soon as I find the shows I want to watch online and on DVD.
I'm looking for pre-paid Internet because while I work from home my time online has been reduced as I write more and more offline. I spend a couple hours a day online which isn't bad. OK I'm going to see what else I can do. I'll feel the savings from the cable when it's not $120 before taxes at the end of the special. I'm off to see how to pre-pay my Internet bill without a phone line in the house and look at alternatives to cable television while still watching shows that I love. OK I'm gone.
