Three Ways To Save Money and Cut Your Cable Bill This Fall


One of most exciting parts of fall is the return of our favorite TV shows. Our excitement dwindles a little after we view our cable bill each month though. Luckily there are several new ways to watch TV without the bill.  Below are just a few ways to get setup and started before your shows start!


Hulu Plus

One of the early ways to cut cable is still the best. With Hulu you get access to shows networks like NBC, FOX, and even Comedy Central. While you wont’ be able to watch new episodes the day that they air, they are available next day for viewing. You can also watch them on your phone, tablet or computer. At only 7.99 a month it’s a great alternative to a cable bill. You can also pay a little more to go commercial-free.


Playstation Vue

One of the newer options comes from Sony available for any PS3 or PS4 owners through Playstation Vue. You get access to channels like NBC, CBS, TNT and even AMC with their basic Core which starts at 44.99 a month. If you need your NFL each Sunday you can pay more for their Elite package which has even more channels like Syfy and the Travel Channel.


Sling TV

Another great option is Sling TV. For $20 a month you get many of the other channels like the other options along with ESPN, AMC, CNN, HGTV, Disney Channel and tons of other options. They also have specific packages that you can add which include channels for different interests like spanish, comedy or kids. You can also stream your Sling TV with your Google Chromecast, Amazon Firestick, Roku Player and many more devices.

You’re no longer tied to the cable bill to watch your favorite shows. Some of these new services are now cheaper and more convenient than watching TV shows as they are live. So cut the cord, curl up with your favorite device and pass the popcorn.

Cindy – Listia All-star of the Week!

This week’s edition of Listia All-star is a little different. One of the best parts of Listia is the community and the people that make it up. We interact with so many people in the marketplace that it’s great to take a moment and see the story of a single person. Today it’s Cindy with her inspirational story on change.


I just wanted to tell you what a difference Listia has made in my life. At one time, I was struggling with depression and substance abuse issues. Try as I might, I just couldn’t seem to stay clean and sober. I thought I’d never make it into the world of recovery. Then I gave it one more mighty try. And I made it! That was 7 years ago. All these years later, I look back at what got me through the loneliest, darkest days of my life. Listia was one of the first things I did in early sobriety that made me feel good deep down inside.

So, here I was, new in recovery from substance abuse, not working, bored, depressed and very low on self esteem. Then, fulfilling a lifelong dream, I put myself through school to become a substance abuse counselor and eventually, I got a job (which I am still doing and loving it) in a detox and today I live a fulfilling and wonderful life.

One of the things I was taught about early recovery was that you HAD to find a hobby…something to keep you busy and look forward to, give you a sense of accomplishment. I chose to dabble in beading. I began making bracelets, necklaces, lanyards and other such stuff. I found I had a real knack for this!

Then I found Listia. I don’t even remember how I found you, but I joined and began listing the things I was making with beads. To my surprise, the other members loved them. I remember how excited I would get when someone commented or bid on a listing. I received many friend requests, too.

Listia gave me a sense of purpose. It was fun to meet other members, many of whom I still socialize with through facebook. Listia really gave me something to work towards and something to be proud of. I take my “business” very seriously and have received great feedback.

Listia is also an invaluable tool in my work. See, I auction off the bracelets I make and in turn, I am able to order books for the clients to read, arts and craft supplies for our groups and much more!

Thank you, Listia, for helping me get through one of the darkest times of my life!
