I've always wanted to be one of those ingenious minds who comes up with a really cool, practical idea or invention. Since we've been married, Chris and I have become huge fans of Redbox. Huge fans may even be an understatement! We will go through periods of renting 3 or 4 movies a week, especially when it's rainy and cold outside. And the best thing is, it is ridiculously cheap and right across the street from us. Although, if you know about RB, you know that you can rent a movie at one machine and return it at a totally different machine (more on that in a minute). Think about it, how brilliant: one movie, one night, one dollar! Who really needs a movie for more than one night anyway? Why didn't I think of that?!
You are probably thinking, "Yeah, yeah, Kate. We all know about Redbox." But here's where the real genious comes in. While we were traveling on Friday, I really wanted to watch a movie on the plane, but they cost a whoping $8! Seriously?! Obviously we didn't pay the grossly overpriced fee. But, while waiting for our flight on Tuesday Chris discovered a Redbox in the airport. Brilliant I tell you! So we were able to rent and watch a movie on the flight and return it when we got home. So next time you are traveling with your laptop, you know where to find cheap entertainment!
