So just the other day I was thinking about how nice it would be to have DVR. Every Thursday I work 5-9, which means that my fiancé and I miss “Bones”. I don’t even know how many weeks we are behind! We also miss “Raising Hope”. We can watch the episodes online, but sometimes the internet takes a while to load and it’s annoying to watch it on a small laptop screen. If we had DVR, then we could just hit a button and boom, our TV show is ready to watch. Right now we get the basic plus which is 77 channels. It costs $57.99 a month for that. The cheapest digital cable (Digital Gateway) costs $63.94 a month and then with the DVR that’s an extra $8.95 per month. So when you do the math, it would be $14.90 more per month than what we pay now. So I gotta think about this. That $14.90 per month could be saved and put towards the wedding. Our wedding is about 2 years away, so say we save that much for about…a year and a half, 18 months, that would be $268.20. So really, that’s not too terribly much, but it’s still something. And having the DVR will allow us to watch more of our shows. Which I guess you could say that watching more TV isn’t really necessary, but I think it would be really nice. So what do you think? Is the DVR a waste of our money or do you think it’s a luxury that we deserve? Leave me your comments and let me know what you think!
Oh, one more side not, I’m going to start couponing, so maybe the savings that we make at the grocery store will make up for the extra $14.90 a month we’d be paying for DVR, just a though.
