I've been trying to be a good human and shop a little smaller and a little more locally, but there are some things you just can't run down to the corner to get.  Sometimes it's items they don't stock, other times your local merchant is out of what you need.  More after the jump.


This weekend I went on a three hour adventure to find a nice LOUD c.d. boombox.  I saw smaller boxes that weren't loud enough, and loud ones that required a mp3 player (that's just something that you don't want to mess with at the job site).  I ended up giving up after two flea markerts, two pawnshops and one giant store.  I found what I needed online in about one minute.  So "What Was The Last Thing That You HAD To Buy Online?
