I was browsing through the sothebys in miami for their real estate. Not that I am planning to buy a home there anytime soon but to get an idea of what kind of house I can get for the money that my hubby and I currently have. The thought came after we have experienced a very long and frigid winter this last. I suggested to my husband that we might consider buying a second home somewhere tropical. I prefer to buy a winter home in my native country, the Philippines but since travelling across the Pacific Ocean has been very taxing to our body now, I mentioned to buy somewhere in Florida instead.
My hubby and I were out of town when our refrigerator quit working. That made my hubby mad because we only had that GE refrigerator for eight years. His grandma’s refrigerator is still working and it is eighty years old. We are using it to keep the night crawlers cool down in the basement. My hubby checked on our GE refrigerator first to see if he could fixed it but unfortunately he was not able to so we went window shopping at the nearby home improvement stores.
We found this Kenmore 18.2 cu. ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator at Sears for $530 on Friday but when we came back on Saturday to buy it, it was on sale for only $423.99. On top of that, we got a 10% discount and twelve months 0% interest when we applied for a new Sears card. Aside from the new refrigerator, we also bought a new washer and it is also a Kenmore. We have decided not to buy anymore GE appliances because of our bad experience with the refrigerator. My hubby has had his Kenmore washer for almost thirty years now but it has had a few problems lately so we decided to get a new one while we could still get the 10% discount.
My hubby has been thinking about buying an external DVD/CD writer for quite sometime because the one that I currently have in my computer doesn’t work. Even the two that came in his newer computer would not write DVD’s like they were supposed to. Now, we have a DVD/CD writer that we can both use whenever we have the need.
We bought it at Walmart for $69.97. This HP Ext 24X Multiformat DVD/CD Writer – DVD1270e was on sale. HP’s USB External drive offers high speed, especially if you are using USB 2.0 interface. It has many features but I am just using the basic ones in the meantime.
I like my new digital camera much better than the old one. For $50 we got more than three times as many mega pixels, a bigger LCD screen, a lot more memory storage for pictures, all at about a third of the cost. It has a lot of features that our old camera did not have. It uses only two AA batteries instead of four. It has zoom control for recording video clips. By shopping around we learned that a digital camera doesn’t have to be expensive to get what we need.
The feature that I like most is that it has face detection and face tracking technologies that isolate subjects in-frame and optimize conditions to take the best pictures of friends and family.
My hubby and I bought the camera at a nearby BestBuy store. It would be nice to have the professional kind but we found out that this basic camera meets all of our needs. It was difficult for me without a digital camera, especially when I needed one for my blogging. I had to use my web cam and that was a big hassle.
My hubby and I were finally able to checked out the new camera last Friday. I took pictures of him while he was watching television and the pictures turned out really well.
