According to CNN, the average cost of Americans cable bill is $75. Assuming you started paying for cable at age 23 and continued until you were 80, if the bill went up about $3.75 in today’s dollars, you’d spend about $53,865 over 57 years.
If you put the money you pay in cable bills into a Roth IRA at a 10% return you’d end up with $4,209,990 – you can check it out at: AARP Investment Return Calculator
