Our first step towards living more simply was cancelling our cable. We had digital cable with over a hundred channels, high-speed internet, and digital phone and our bill from the cable company was running about $150 a month. Now that we cancelled the cable we only get a handful of local channels. We also cancelled the digital phone and only use our cell phones. When we first started talking about doing this, Jay was totally on board. After I did it though, he admitted to me that he never thought I would actually do it. He does not watch that much tv but does enjoy watching sports. Luckily he figured out a way for him to watch games live over the internet or he listens to the games on the radio so our family has been able to adjust to this change pretty well. Our family only has one tv and it is in the living room. This change has made us all read a little more.
