Okay, okay — we’re just as addicted to Mad Men as the next girl; but when it comes to maintaining a budget, cable seems to constantly get in the way. For creative tips on saving cash (without sacrificing Dexter re-runs), we got the lowdown from the Learnvest staff on small saving changes that yield big money results.

“I have completely sworn off any form of cable TV, so my boyfriend and I only pay $8 a month for Netflix rather than $80+ a month for cable. We have lots of commercial-free shows and movies to choose from, not to mention plenty of free YouTube videos to watch. We might one day splurge on a $15 pair of rabbit ears in order to watch network TV and PBS, but it hasn’t really come up.” – Nancy
