"We have free over the air television... we get all the major networks, a retro channel, and three diffrent PBS cahnnels, and a lifestyle channel, for the last four years we have not missed cable! I still like to go out to eat, but try and go for lunch, or use coupons. I am a homemaker so getting out of the house.. is worth it to me. We rarely go to the movies, but we have the option of a 3 dollar thearther here, which makes movie going doable as long as you don't over do the goodies! But we have some great parks, and other fun things to get out and do. Things like zoo or muesum passes can make getting out fun, and inexpensive. Also keep you eyes and ears out, for free community events. Here in Green Bay there are tons!" -- JCSBAYBEE - 5/1/2012 1:20:58 PM
"We haven't had cable for over two years! We have a Netflix subscription and a library of movies that we had collected in years past. You can even watch old tv shows and some movies on netflix streamed to your tv or on your computer. We hook up our computer via hdmi to our computer but you can use an xbox, PS3 and there are some other systems too that will work. Then there are internet sites like HULU aand such that have tv shows too not to mention the networks themselves have access to a lot of their current shows online. Even You Tube is a source of entertainment. Internet is usually much cheaper than full blown cable and most people have both... It's great because we can pick and choose what we want to watch on our own scehdule." -- LAURIEBUCKMAN - 4/5/2010 1:30:06 PM
"My friends and I take turns making yummy dinners and hosting movie nights. We make our own popcorn (I add hot sauce to mine) and skip the candy. We have fun and save money. When we clean out our closets, we also have a clothing party where we can take turns "shopping" for outfits that our friends have slightly worn. We have spa parties too. We take turns painting eachothers nails and coloring each others hair. Makeovers are fun and we all end up looking good!" -- PINKYROCKS - 8/10/2009 12:33:12 PM
