We just recently bought a TV. For the last year, we lived without one, and didn't really miss it. We subscribe to Netflix and have been watching movies on Andrew's laptop. It will be nice now to watch movies on a bigger screen. After we bought the TV and were waiting for it to be delivered, we realized that we needed to get a table for the TV. We have a coffee table and a side table that we bought from Target. They are nice and we thought it would be good to get something that matched. Unfortunately the TV table that goes with our other pieces of furniture costs around $175.
Last week, I went on Craigslist to look around for a swing. I also decided to browse through the furniture section. Guess what I found! Yep - the exact table that we wanted from Target - for only $75!! I could not believe my eyes when I saw it! I immediately emailed the person who was selling it and said we would buy it.
So here is our new TV and table:
For now, we will not subscribe to any cable TV. I hope that we never do, unless an option becomes available where we can only subscribe to particular channels (EWTN, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel...) I think, actually I know I would waste my time watching TV if we had it. Also, we do not want to use the TV as a babysitter. I want to have the TV be a family activity, not just a method of zoning out. Life is too short to waste time vegging on the couch watching TV ;)
