I cut out some painless stuff today
« on: May 20, 2016, 02:30:24 PM »
I finally called my internet (cable) provider today and got the specific make/model on our cable modem and ordered one online for $25.  This after years of renting one for $5/month.  Yes - I've thought about doing this several times over the past few years but could never get good information from customer service.  And also, this was a little lower on the totem pole than the big stuff.

Also, we're getting ready to travel for a few weeks so I made sure to cancel Netflix and Spotify Premium.  (The latter is a splurge I allow myself to keep from buying albums and also it allows me to listen to any music I want while I work out.)

FIRE me

Get a receipt when you turn in the old modem. Keep the receipt safe.

I did the same about a year ago. I got a router for free from my brother and a modem on eBay for $20. Saves me $8 a month.
