There’s inflation, and then there’s electronics

Comments Off on There’s inflation, and then there’s electronics

As much as it irks me to see the price of groceries and gas and everything we buy go up, I know I can usually count on the price of electronics to keep on dropping. Even better, gadgets become faster and spiffier, along with that low price tag!

I worked long hours as a cashier at Osco Drug as a senior in high school to help pay for my college expenses. I saved up for a new desktop computer and a fancy pants LCD monitor. They still sold CRT monitors back then.

We recently bought a refurbished desktop and monitor, and all combined paid a bit less than I paid for just my monitor way back in 2003. And this one is bigger!

I love technology and falling prices, don’t you? Oh, and refurbished electronics FTW. Cheaper, Earth-friendly.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.
