Sounds silly, doesn't it, but sometimes spending a little money in the beginning will save more money in the long run.  Confused?  No need to be, pretty simple plan.

We have had cable internet for several years now.  We tried the dial up but some things can not be seen on dial up so we switched.  At the start, the rates were really low, of course, but over the years have climbed.  We did have the bundle but have dropped the phone, saving even more money and we went with Majic Jack which is working nicely.

The most recent cutback is purchasing a cable modem online to switch out the company's cable modem.  At the present, we are 'renting' their modem for $7 a month, I think.  To purchase our own was about $25.  Do the math and yes, we will pay for it in less than four months, reducing our cable bill by that rental fee forever, well, as long as we have cable internet.  Time will tell on that one.

Think about it, why rent when you can own your own equipment.
