    RaleighFoodBlogger - thanks for the update on the cable, car and cell phone savings. Great job cutting all those expenses! And that's a great tip on the Instacart code! My condolences regarding your car.

    I wish I lived near Cary to take advanatage of the free delivery of InstaCart...but I do love instacart and don't mind the fee. The delivery is quick, the quality has been great and the orders accurate!

    Just wanted to do an update of 1 month with no cable. It's going great, and I found the key to it working for us (compared to last time when we didn't last long) is a combo of a Roku (which is around $50 one time) and lets you stream amazon prime music/movies (we already had), pbs, plus lots of other free programming. And both hulu (for tv shows) which I got a special of $6/mo. and netflix (around $7/mo.) for movies.

    Highly recommend, as we're saving about $90/mo... and don't miss cable a bit :)

    Also been doing just fine and saving a TON of money with no car (since my beloved Jaguar finally bit the dust 2 weeks ago :(, and only using 1 cell phone instead of 2 now. Urban living has it's definite pros! And if you live by the Cary Publix, use code CaryFreeDelivery on Instacart to get 3 free deliveries over $35 (normally $6 each).
