Grey, Lost, and An Office...My Frugal Guilty Pleasures

One of the ways my family stays frugal is not paying for cable. We have a set of rabbit ears on top of our tv and we get about 6 channels which is just fine with us. (Although sometimes I REALLY REALLY REALLY miss some of my cable shows). Also, another way we stay frugal is staying home and not going out, which isn't too hard to accomplish when you have a 7 month old, but still - one way we save money is being content with what entertainment we have at home - which is our free tv.

So that being said, can I just share with the world how excited I am for today??? That's because the writer's strike is over and TODAY my two favorite shows ever ever ever are BACK. Grey's Anatomy and Lost are back in action starting tonight at 9pm. Yes 9pm everyone.

But, ohhhhh, those sneaky tv execs have been thinking up some naughty stuff while their best shows were on vacation - they had the NERVE, the AWEDACITY, to move my 3rd favorite show ever ever ever to the excact same time slot as Grey's Anatomy. ARGGGG, NBC has moved The Office to 9.30. What's a girl to do?

I'll tell you - go to Hulu.com tomorrow and watch The Office with limited commercials!! It's awesome! Sometimes the picture get's hung up, but its FREE. You can also check out many other of your favorite shows, some of which are only available on Cable.

Also, if you don't have a t.v. or can't be home to watch ABC. Just go to abc.com where you can watch any of their shows in full the day after they air with extremely limited commercials. It's amazing.

I looove Lost and The Office, too! Lost is also available for free on abc.com like 24 hours after it airs, I think.

I love that they put things online for those of us without the channels.

We have them now, but didn't for quite some time.

I used to love Grey's...blogging replaced that TV habit of mine ;)
