Making Sacrifices For High Definition TV

By: Jim Williams

When I graduated from college and decided to move to the big apple, I knew that money was going to be tight. I managed to undertake an apartment for much less than I had expected but I still knew I needed money for bills and other necessary items.

I have a neat job but it doesn't pay enough money to support me with much disposable income. So I needed to gain ways to cut corners anyway thinkable. I started to visit garage sales to ascertain any miscellaneous items for decorating my apartment.

I also searched through clearance bins and collected as many coupons as I could for department stores. I was quickly discovery things that are my style and saving oodles of cash. Another important part of my living status is recreation.

I am not big on music, but I am big on watching television. I knew I had to invest in a good television if I invested in anything. I was even willing to eat tuna every night for a month so I could gather up enough cash for an HDTV. I am not a typical early 22 year old who just places everything I can't afford on a credit card.

Instead, I will make sacrifices so I can pay for what I need with cash. After I saved enough money, I called the cable provider to see how much per month I would have to pay to have HD service. The cable company said that it would be virtually $15 more a month.

I budgeted it into my financial situation and left the apartment to get my first HDTV. When I arrived at the electronics store, all of the HDTVs overwhelmed me. I knew I didn't want a gigantic tv but I desired one that was big enough.

While I was browsing, I couldn't believe the HD pictures on the televisions. They were so sharp and I could hardly wait to get it in my apartment so I could watch my most favorite shows in HD. I decided on a 42 inch because it seemed to be large enough for my needs.

It looks tremendous against my picture window. I was even able to organise my furnishings perfectly around it so when all my buddies come to visit everyone can see what I have on. I am even planning a party for all of my family and friends. The important feature will be some great taco's and a film on my big screen.
