I'm usually scraping to get by each month. I get paid every other Friday and usually by Sunday I have less than $100 in my account. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful to be employed and I live a full and wonderful life. I'm just living hand-to-mouth most of the time so I'm always looking for a way to save a buck.
One bill I've had for years and years is for my cable which is through Comcast, our local carrier. I get Internet, video and phone service. I add a few premium channels and I try to take advantage of whatever deals they offer.
I was paying roughly $150 a month. Some months I'd get behind and have to pay catch-up which would cost me $300. Here's a reminder:
How did this get so expensive? I remember when cable first came out and it cost $29.95 a month!
Comcast is big, Comcast is clever and Comcast is evil They have a very simple plan: take all your money.
So I came up with a plan....
