I got rid of my cable in January, 2010. It was a liberating and awesome moment. Cutting the cord is one of the easiest ways to save on home expenses.

A few months ago my wife and I moved about 1.2 miles from a rented condo into a house of our own. We stayed in the same zip code, so we figured moving our utilities to our new address would be simple and straightforward. Not surprisingly, the only place we ran into problems was with Comcast. After we got our service moved, our bill went up 50%! Obviously, this was not right, so we made a few phone calls.
