Weekend Reading / One Link Edition

by RJ

in Random

This week’s links are short and to the point.

In college I would watch Food Network and Travel channel for hours straight. I would eat lunch and dinner in a somehow still comfortable 25-year old recliner watching episodes of Seinfeld I had already seen a dozen times.

Now, I’m on the opposite end of the spectrum. I don’t even have cable. Forty five minutes of Lost is about all I watch each week.

With the time I used to spend watching T.V., I have started a blog, passed the CFP® exam, learned to cook, lost to my wife in Scrabble more times than I would like to admit (I’m the Monopoly king), starting reading a few books a week, and took up yoga. Which brings me to my only link for the week:

  1. But It’s Better Than TV via Seth Godin

What would you do if you have up T.V.?

P.S. – Will have an update coming next week on my March challenge, which is to build a $100 month passive income source.

Congratulations on your decision to give up television! My husband and I have done the same thing, and it’s wonderful.

We gave up tv 3 years ago. Since then, I’ve started a website. I sew, including clothing for my daughters and Christmas presents for my children. In the summer I garden in the evenings while the light lasts. I spend a lot of summer nights canning peaches and pears. I spend time reading money saving blogs on the web, seeking to learn where else I can cut back (a big deal when you’re living on a third of your previous income). I speak around the city about gardening and food storage. I get more sleep (sometimes!) My husband works from home, and often works late into the evenings. Though he grew up with a tv in every room (including the bathroom!), and he loves tv, he says he doesn’t really miss it.

Wow sounds very similar. That’s great.
