    I live in an efficiency appartment, a 15'x12'room ,a large kitchen and a bathroom. I live here for the cheap rent which enabled me to save up for a pretty decent home theater.

    But to get this I gave up my bed, I sleep on the floor on a roll up mattress or sometimes in a super comfortable extra large recliner. Actually I had a surgery that required me to sleep sitting up for a few days and I got used to it. Until I get a larger apartment I can live without a bed rather than go without my HT.

    What about you?

    I have been considering exactly the same thing. My apartment is kinda small, and the bed is way too big, since I'm the only one who uses it anyway [​IMG]
    My first problem is that I don't really own the bed and I don't quite know where to put it. My second problem is I think it looks kinda geeky [​IMG] (No offense)

    drugs....of course, I didn't use drugs beforehand so it wasn't much of a sacrifice.

    For me, it is the reverse: I've sacrificed a nice RPTV so I could eat without pain (dental work).

    For me I could have had one of these with what I've put into my HT...though it wouldn't have sounded half as good...well, except perhaps on startup [​IMG]

    I sacrificed beer and cigarettes for about 8 months - HT=healthy living. Wow did I save money a lot faster. Once I bought most of what I wanted I started again though. I am thinking about a new sub now so I think its time to quit again.

    Social graces. I don't venture out anymore and I refuse to let anyone visit lest they decide to never leave again [​IMG]

    TV.

    For nearly 3 years.

    Survived with a TV tuner card, OTA antenna, & DVD player in a PC. I did, thankfully, have a 21" monitor, but still... eventually saved enough for a nice RPTV.
