as far as retail appliances, electronics, etc. I've always had my best luck at HH Gregg. They willingly negotiate, too.

What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
Just seeing this. Glad everyone is/was safe and that you had insurance. Just remember, it's just 'stuff'.
Glad you're ok, relatively speaking!
I'm just now seeing this too and I'm glad to hear that you're all right. You might want to check out TJ Maxx if you have one near you because they usually have some good deals on clothes and other random things you might need for your new place.
"I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
Don't be afraid to play hardball with any of them Craig. Make'em give you their best, bottom dollar offer or "threaten" to walk/shop around. Put the pressure on them, not yourself. You'll find that they'll deal with you.
And we ended up getting a solid deal from Lowes.
We just bought a new washer from Sears. We got a bottom line Kenmore for $300. We then purchased their 5 yr "bumper to bumper" warranty for $140. So for $440 we got a washer that if anything at all goes wrong with it - and I do mean anything - they have to come to my house and either fix it or replace the washer. They also have to come out to the house once a year and do a service on it and check it out for free.
Sears has far better service agreements then Lowes and the other guys IMO.

"panic" only comes from having real expectations
Woah. That's awful man. I actually saw the smoke from the fire when I was getting out of my car to walk into L A Fitness. I didn't realize you lived in there!
Hang in there man. If you need any help moving anything in/around, let me know since I live like 3 miles from you.
Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!
We took our annual summer trip up to Yellow Springs and drove by the apartment on the highway. Pretty bad looking and again, glad you and all of your neighbors made it out safely.

Hang in there, Paint.
This will all be over in a few months, and you'll have bunch of new stuff to boot.
Gotta look on the bright side.

If you are a patient sort, you can find all sorts of great deals over time. Research what you want, then watch, be ready to jump on deals quickly if you see them. Read the thread a bit before you buy anything and you'll be ok.
I love this site, but it's not for everyone.
