Digital A la Carte

Spotify is one of the best ways to listen to music these days. Netflix for TV, and so on. Digital a la cart generation is here and it’s pretty awesome. It’s an immensely convenient and cheaper way to consume a wide variety of the things you want without a lot of what you don’t for small monthly subscriptions. Can you have too many? Are you actually spending more than you think?

It’s easy to assume while looking at one service at a time that you’re ahead of the curve and found a really convenient way to minimize your monthly bills. Netflix for 9 instead of cable? Definitely! Okay, I cut cable, but still want HBO for Game of Thrones… HBO Now for 15 bucks to stay away from cable? Sweet! That’s only $24.00 bucks to kick expensive cable out! Wait… is it that easy? I still have to keep internet-$87.00 a month- then the $24.00 a month for the subscriptions; that’s $111.00. Beforehand, with internet and cable package I was at $135.00 with a package deal. So, $24.00 a month savings. Okay, so that IS a savings. For cable…

Added everything up that you do though?

  • Netflix-$9
  • Spotfiy-$15
  • HBO Now-$15
  • Sirius-$17
  • Amazon prime-$99 yr – $8.25
  • Random iTunes Movies-$5.00-$20.00
  • VPN- $39.98 yr -$3.33

That’s roughly $70.00 to $90.00 a month…

As you can see, it’s easy to get carried away picking up tailored services so be careful before subscribing.
