I hate renting movies!

October 23rd, 2008 at 07:00 pm

I dont rent movies. I may see Movies alot later then others, but i get the better deal.
At Movie Gallery, They always have a sale going on, its either buy one get one, or buy two get two, same deal really.
They sell used movies from 1.00 to 15.00.
I go for the Secondary step down at 9.99.
Thats movies that have been out for about 8 months. I get out the door with four of those movies for 21.28. I also have combo vcr/dvds, and they sell all thier video tapes for 1.99. I get alot of deals like that for my kids. All four still at home, get a movie just for them for under 10 dollars in total, you cant beat that!
Why rent for about 4 dollars for 5 days when you can buy it and keep it forever for 10 dollars.
Even walmart. Now saw 5 ,for example, is going to the theaters. Thier electronics dept has a 5 dollar wall. They have saw 1,2,3 all 5 dollars each. Friday the 13th 1-5 for 5 dollars each, Rocky movies, all of them, for 5 dollars each. They even have b flick combos with up to 7 differnt clips(bella legousi for example) for 5 dollars each. Again 21.28 out the door for 4 movies. Or if theres one i want, its out the door with 5 movies for 26.56. They even had Judge Judys movie in this rack. I totally skip new releases and go for the older option. Even at the Dollar Tree, they have old shows, old movies and Biblical Movies and discs for listening for 1 dollar each. I got Lucy Show, Red Skelton, Abbott and Costello.

Theres also the pawn shops as well. Sometimes ours has a buy 1 get one free. Normally any given day they are 4.99. I got my Laurel and Hardy Collection here. I got volume 1 and 4 for out the door for 5.30.

At walmart, i bought a set for cleaning and fixing. Its a plug in deal, its automatic, and has discs and cleaners for both purposes. Originally 20.00. Refil packs are only 7.99. This is a great investment! I bought a second one, and now have one for each purpose and no need for a refill pack for some time, since each came with 2 sets. I dont have to change discs ever either, One has one set the other has the other.

I also found at walmart a Clearance Section in electronics, It is usually in the back corner, the last place you would look and its like that in each dept of the store, so look! I got 2 of the Biggest,240 movies each, Books, for clearance of 7.50 each. I have a Black one for Just Me Movies, and one with red and white stripes, like thier school colors for Just for Kids movies.I keep a bounce sheet inside each for static reduction and a nice fresh scent.lol. Just look for those with cotton backs, not plastic backs for longer life for your movies.

Back to the dollar store...
dollar tree that is, They have 11 volumnes of Biblical Stories. If you found and got all 11 of them, you could walk out the door with hours of entertainment for 11.67. Bases on our tax of .0632 percent. If you buy one item is 6 cents tax, but if you buy 2 items is 13 cents tax.lol.

My kids like stuff that i and my mother grew up with two. My youngest son, 7 now, His favorite Cartoon is Felix. He has Aspbergers, so repeats are necessary for him to be happy. Its like a combo of autism and adhd. I got several Felix discs at the dollar store for 1 dollar each and hes quite content with them. I put them in my dvd drive on laptop while traveling. All the kids like it, but one loves and depends on it.

Its hard to explain the depends on it part, unless you have special needs kids, to really understand, what a mother goes thru with the disability.

For example with him. If I get take out, Mcdonalds, He will only want a cheeseburger kids meal, and the burger has to be absolutely plain except needs to have cheese also. No Cheese, any condiments,and your up to a Scream fest. Its not something he can help or control either, and the medication only plays a partial roll.

Its like the therapist he had to see for diagnosis of said disability, You have to venture out for things, with him only. He can pick out things hes comfortable with and you stick with it. Not just food or movies, but clothes as well. Like for me, Im allergic to wool, so i cant have anything with wool in it. He cant have wool because with the autism part of this syndrome, texture issues, which falls under clothes and food as well. You know the saying if mommy aint happy, noones happy, well same goes for my son. If he aint happy, then mommy aint happy and noone will be happy. lol.
