This December I'm participating in An Advent of Gratitude to help remind me of the gifts I already have, what I often take for granted, and what I can and should be grateful for.
Today's challenge called me to pay $1 per TV, and pay $1 extra if I subscribed to Netflix.
It was just last month that Hubby Tony and I discontinued our cable service. Now the only paid video option we have is Netflix. It's ironic, considering that Consumer Reports says that there are more than a dozen different video streaming services. I posted that point on the Advent of Gratitude Facebook page, and got the response "I wrote this according to what I subscribe to -- never expecting thousands of people to also participate! The original intent was to make ME grateful -- and I have one TV AND Netflix."
And I'm grateful, too. As such I added an additional dollar to my total.
