It’s been a very long time since my husband or I watched a DVD from our home library. These days we tend to watch movies ordered from Netflix, either streamed or from the Blu-rays that arrive in the mail. We also rent movies directly through Amazon’s instant video.
We were never the type to buy a lot of movies. In fact I don’t know if either of us purchased more than a handful of the films we own. Most came into our house as gifts received over the years from friends and family.
When I started the great purge to remove unwanted belongings from our home I thought long and hard about selling them. Many of them are plain old DVDs and these days everyone is interested in purchasing blu-rays, so I didn’t think I would make much money by getting rid of them.
Rather than giving them away or finding a buyer on eBay I ended up boxing them up and driving them down to our rental home. The DVDs are now lined up on a long narrow shelf next to the TV where guests can use them.
We don’t watch many movies at home, but when we stay at the beach I love to cuddle on the couch with my hubby to watch them. Tonight, rather than turning to Amazon or Netflix, my husband pulled The Game and the The Matrix off the shelf.
