Looking to kill two or three of your New Year’s Resolutions with one shot? We’re here to help. Let’s go over a few of the most popular resolutions and see how they fit into becoming a cord cutter next year.
1. Pay off debt.
Well becoming a cord cutter probably won’t free you completely from debt but it is an excellent start. Take whatever you are paying for cable today (the 2011 average was $78) and put it straight toward your credit cards, student loans, etc.
2. Lose weight.
Cord cutters do not have as much to channel surf. Except for OTA channels much more of our viewing is on demand of pre-recorded content. So take 30 minutes away each day from your old TV schedule for a brisk one mile walk.
3. Save more money.
Instead of paying off your credit cards have that $78+ per month you were paying the Cable company sent straight to your Roth IRA or investment of your choice. That’s nearly $1000 per year you were throwing away for the privilege of watching infomercials and getting dozens of other channels you never watch.
Keeping your Commitment – take the pledge!
It is often said that the way to keep your goals on track is to put them in writing and commit to them publicly. The Cord Cutter Guide is here to help you do just that. In the comments below please tell us why you’ll be cutting the cord on cable in 2013.
