Growing up, my family never had cable. I still don't and don't think I probably ever will.
My wife and I have Netflix but just ended that too because we barely even use it.
We still have Amazon Prime but I split the cost with my mom so it comes in really handy and I don't have to pay much.
Most of the things I end up watching are business videos on YouTube.
My wife and I prefer to save the money on cable/streaming etc and instead spend that money on travel.
Travel can be more costly but it is something we enjoy far more than sitting on the couch and watching something.
(Also, on the occasion we want to see a new movie, we go to the theater on their $5 Tuesdays)
