<<Gave up cable years ago. Even then it was only 1/8 the cost of my health insurance.
It's not even close.
My health insurance is more than I spend on food and utilities combined. It's more than my transportation. It's more than I spend on entertainment, travel and pet care all combined. The ONLY thing in my monthly budget that costs more than it is my mortgage.>>
$1130/month for my individual health insurance. Fortunately, no mortgage. Doubly fortunate, I have rental income from a house I own free and clear.
