My DVD player seems to be broken. This is terrible. It’s a tragedy. I’m torn between hitting Consumer Reports, researching the best price for the best model and then (most likely) buying online and waiting for the delivery OR I could walk down the street to the local electronics store and buy whatever they have on the shelf. I know everyone loves instant gratification (maybe with the exception of some monks) but I think I love it more. What to do?

  1. When our DVD player broke, Jr. didn’t skip a beat before saying, “We have to go to Target for a new one!”

  3. Yeah, I agree. Go immediately to Target – they generally have several models for under $50. Buy two. Leave one in the box in the closet for future emergencies. Begin enjoying the other right now. Mine was $37 two years ago and it works fine – much better, in fact, than the one I spent a couple hundred bucks on a few years before that.

  5. Crisis averted. A trip to CostCo later and we’ve got a $48 DVD player with an iron-clad warranty.
