No Cable TV
For the past 4 years we have lived without Cable TV! I have declared that any sort of TV is a want and not a need. It definately can be beneficial and I am grateful that we have the small TV that we have and the basic channels that we get with an antenna and the DVD/VCR we can use to watch movies, etc. But I am grateful that I have learned to live without it. Over the course of the past 4 years I have had times where we did not have TV or computer at all. It was very freeing! I read alot. I journaled alot. I played games with my hubby alot. My kids have been more creative when we watch less TV. And I will admit that when it is accessable I tend to watch it and allow the kids to watch it. And it saves us money.
Disclaimer: I am NOT saying that everyone should be like me and not have TV. This is just my way of chronicling the simple ways of life we have done over the years.
