Do I Really Need Internet at Home?

Leave a comment

It’s just one of the questions I’m asking myself as I move forward in the adoption process, and realize just how precarious my financial situation really is. I had considered dropping cable, but for various reasons, doing so will save me only $1. I mean, seriously? So I’m thinking of dropping internet service as well, which will save me about $65 a month. I have an iPhone now, so I can get online in some fashion. That’s really where I feel I need to compromise–I got myself the fancy phone with the big fancy bill, so that means something’s got to give.

I have yet to check out the library and see if they have wifi. Really the biggest challenge will be on weekends and vacation, because otherwise I can just do stuff at work.

The other part of this decision is the realization that tv and internet suck up a lot of my time. When I keep my computer off, I get a lot more reading and sewing done, and those are things I’ve been wanting to do more of.

So save $65 a month and do more of hobbies I enjoy. Sounds like I just have to get up the guts to do it. I think I’m just worried there’s a downfall I haven’t considered that I’ll figure out after I’ve canceled the service and returned my hardware.

Weird the stuff you have to figure out when becoming a parent!
