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.
