Big Furniture and Big Price Tags
Since moving in I’ve been trying to clean up the wreck that is my new house, but I’m unable to unpack several boxes because I have yet to purchase a wall unit to store my numerous DVDs, game consoles, as well as our flatscreen TV. Naively I figured that I would be able to go out on any given weekend and simply buy an entertainment center, but silly me…those things are expensive!
I’m used to having a lot of storage, and I had no idea that the type of wall unit I am accustomed to can run so expensive. I've searched Haverty's, Ashley Furniture, Rooms To Go, and even Ikea; all of the large entertainment centers seem to be priced at the $1000-$1200 mark, which is about twice the amount I was looking to spend.
I've browsed through Overstock.com and they seem to have more reasonable prices, but I'll have to settle for a piece that is smaller than I had originally planned. Another option is that I can purchase a TV stand at a drastically lower price, and somewhere along the way I can buy shelving units that (hopefully) match for my DVDs. I like the look of one cohesive entertainment unit, but for my price range it looks like I'll have to settle for second best.
