What did you do to improve your finances today?
This was one of my favourite threads on the old forum, and since there doesn't seem to be one here yet, I thought I'd create one :-)
I thought about buying a new coat, then considered having the zip pockets of the old coat I love repaired, after that thought I’d buy the zips and repair the pockets myself and in the end found some zips at home I can use :-).
And I upcycled this backpack I was given, into a present for my nephews 10th birthday. I’m quite content.
Last year I cut ties with Cable and moved to Philo for $20 a month. I have enjoyed streaming with the service and don't miss cable. But I only watch a handful of the shows on Philo. Now Discovery Plus came out and the overlap between the shows they offer and the ones I watch on Philo is exact. (Like it was made for me!)
Discovery plus is $4.99 a month with ads and $6.99 a month without ads. That is already way cheaper than Philo - which does have commercials (some you can skip and some you can't.
BUT now they are offering a 'gift' special. I was able to gift myself a year of Discovery plus for $59. (A little under $5.00 a month.) There is only one show that I like to watch that isn't on Discovery Plus as far as I can tell. But going from $240 to $59 for the year makes that a very acceptable trade-off. I have the rest of February on my Philo account to binge-watch that show and also make sure I add my 'fav' list from one service to the other.
