Now here is the random bit, I made it a goal to reach 1000 even though it's actually a 1000 items logged - if I log a DVD box set with 5 DVDs it counts as 1, I actually have a 1310 titles on there but I'm celebrating a 1000 items instead!
The DVDs/Blu-Rays that made my goal possible arrived today, I know I have a huge collection but I'm a thrifty shopper when it comes to my film collection as well as everything else. I don't go to the store and pay full price when something new comes out, I wait, I look for offers, I use points I've saved. Steelbooks I rarely spend £15 on, I usually pick them up around the £12 mark, Blu-Rays I try to get for around £9 max and DVDs £6 tops but I also pick up second-hand copies for a few quid.
These three DVD's make up the Bronx Warriors trilogy, I'd wanted these for a while, originally I was after the box set with all three in but that was too expensive. Instead I got them individually, James actually treated me to them as he thought I would pout if he didn't!
Now these five I actually bought myself, Sainsbury's Entertainment had these BFI Flipside releases for a steal at £6.99, I wasn't going to as I'm a bit strapped for cash until I'm back in work but I then realised I could use nectar points. I love nectar points, I've collected them without even thinking about spending the points so I was nicely surprised when I checked my balance.
