Biting the bullet and get shot of sky tv, when my current deal runs out with them it will cost me an eye-watering £65 for my current channels! Going to get myself a freesat box and live without sky sports.
MOTD has the prem highlights so I can Spurs that way and channel 5 will have the Imps goals on so I'm sure I'll manage.
As I will be fully retired come September (I actually finish on Tuesday 18 July) because school are not renewing my contract (I am too expensive apparently!) I am also thinking of ways to save money. Sky is on the list of things to look at!
I already saved on my home contents insurance which was up for renewal. As I pay monthly, the charge this year (for the year) was going to be £438 but I decided to reduce the cost by paying once a year which would have been £406 thus saving £32 over the year. Whilst talking to the guy I asked if he could sort out a bit of discount for me as I was retiring. Believe it or not, the cost reduced to £248 with EXACTLY THE SAME BENEFITS!!!
Needless to say, I snapped his hand off. It's well worth talking to people, David, tell them you are going to leave them and see what happens. I did that with Sky recently and got £21.50 knocked off my monthly bill. Mind you, I'm still paying £71.50 so will be looking at that one again.
