I LOVE to save money. Who doesn't right? I have never met a person that says "I love to throw my money away" Join my Saving Money in 2014 group here.
One of my most popular posts from last year was when I shared our experience of Cutting the Cable Cord.
Our cable bill just kept creeping up and before I knew it we were paying over $120 a month for TV with no special channels like HBO, Showtime... To me this was ridiculous, we are not big TV watchers and with all the streaming options out there..we Cut the Cord and I have No Regrets!

Amazon PrimeOne thing that made the no cable transition easier is that I'm a member of Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime is a special membership program that offers participants premium benefits for just $79 per year.
I joined years ago, mostly because I am a reading teacher so when I see a children's book or a professional book...or any book for that matter I want it right away! Patience is NOT a virtue for this gal! Amazon Prime has FREE 2 day shipping which was a selling point for me!
Before I became a Prime member, I would need to increase my order to $25 dollars to get free Super Saver Shipping, (I don't like paying shipping) causing me to buy something I didn't necessarily need.
As of October 21, 2013, Amazon Super Saver Shipping has increased from $25 to $35. That means unless you have a Prime Account, you have to purchase over $35 on some items to get the free shipping.
What I LOVE... now that we Cut the Cable Cord is the ability to watch over 40,000 movies and TV episodes, anytime. We have been watching the Good Wife recently...
Downton Abby is another awesome show I enjoy on the nights when the Lieutenant is at the fire station.
Plus, since I am a Prime member and receive FREE two-day shipping on millions of products with no minimum order size - I did ALL of my Holiday shopping in my PJs! (I have to admit that is my favorite way to shop!)
The Prime membership also includes access to the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. My hubby loves this feature since the girls bought their Daddy a Kindle for his Birthday last year. He can "check" out an e-book and return it when he is finished...no due date looming...no stress of not finishing before the book disappears from your Kindle.
Right now Amazon is offering a FREE 1-month trial of Amazon Prime.Starting December 26 through January 10, 2014, sign up for Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial.
Who else is a Prime member? What do you like about it? What are you watching (or did you enjoy?)...I need some more ideas!! Leave me a comment below!
