(BPT) - Frugal Americans know how to save money, not only by keeping it in their pocket but by making wise purchasing decisions. As many have found, a frugal lifestyle does not mean going without.
One way many people have saved money is by cutting the cord and eliminating cable or satellite TV from the household budget. By taking that step, frugal consumers can save up to $1,200 per year.
In fact, Nielsen reports that the number of consumers who only watch broadcast TV has risen this year to more than 53 million, up some 5 percent in just a year. However, the overwhelming majority of TV homes in America subscribe to cable, satellite or telephone company TV delivery services.
