A few weeks ago, we received our pre-ordered copy of the new Star Wars Blu-ray. It was a must buy for this geek family and our anniversary gift to one another. But, at that price, it did make me pause. It came out to $66 with the preorder discount and my Swagbucks gift cards.
With the price of DVD rentals at only $1, I realized we would have to watch each movie at least 12 times to make the purchase truly worthwhile. Not a problem for Star Wars, particularly, but what about the hundreds of other DVDs we own? I’m totally rethinking the whole concept of a DVD collection.
With nearly 200 titles and locations in every state, Redbox may just be my new DVD shelf. It’s got me rethinking the value of a lot of things I own. I mean, the 37 different Sharpies? Totally worthwhile. But, maybe it isn’t necessary to keep buying the knickknacks & dust collectors. Or, you know, the crappy books that will end up in the next yard sale!
It will save money, space and valuable dusting time if I leave the purchasing to someone else. I’ll just be a rental girl.
