Given a cost of $0.10 per kilowatt hour, and the fact that the smaller television used about 100 watts and the larger one used about 160 watts, that meant we were using a bit over a kilowatt hour each day. There’s another $40 a year that vanished.

What I like about this post is another Ten suggestions of things to do instead of watching TV. Think about a minimum of 30 minutes you’re spending watching television and, for some, several hours per day. What else could you be doing?

  • Start an exercise plan.
  • Prepare meals.
  • Read a book you’ve always wanted to read.
  • Start a second business.
  • Be social.
  • Take an evening class.
  • Learn a new skill or a new hobby.
  • Take on a major project.
  • Get things done.
  • Take care of whatever bothers you. For me, it was taking a little bit of time each day to meditate and get in touch with my spiritual side, and it made a huge difference in my life.

How much time are you saving if you quit TV? How much money could you potentially make instead?
