When people are beating the rugs hunting for little ways to improve their financial statements, cable TV is generally considered untouchable. Why?

A neat post at Bargaineering makes the case that living without cable TV is easier than it’s been in quite some time. To see if life sans cable—and without the monthly bill of $50 or $100 or whatever—is right for you, Bargaineering suggests keeping a log of the shows you actually watch, and making a close evaluation of the results. It also lists various websites, online programs, and mail-order services like Netflix that make it easy to still get your fix of news and entertainment—but without nearly the cost of cable.
