Yesterday was a no-spend day.
I’ve been sitting in front of the TV almost every free moment until 11:00. Not good! So I’m on a self-imposed television watching strike starting today until my show “Gotham” returns later in September.
Some background: We cancelled cable television about five years ago. It was very hard for me. My DH put his foot down and said no more because we are paying to be zombies (he’s right). But it has been so hard! So, a few months ago, I purchased a digital converter box and an antenna (rabbit ears) and now we have a bunch of channels. DH is ok with that compromise since the investment was low ($80) and the channels are free and the picture is clear. We own the old fashioned tube tv and when it dies, we’ll buy another one from the thrift store for $30.
I binged on the Downton Abbey marathon this past weekend (heaven)! But enough is enough for now. I’ve had my fill and can wait until the regular season begins.
It reminds me of spending and about a term I learned in finance class called “opportunity costs”. Opportunity costs means that in order to get something, you have to give something up. In the case of watching television, it means giving up my valuable time that I could be doing something productive.
