If you're on the fence about buying the newest expensive gadget, consider renting it for a week instead. Digital cameras, camcorders, iPads and gaming systems can be rented by the week at many national chains, like Rent-A-Center. Return the item after a week, and then make the big investment if you really, truly need the item. Another idea: If you're planning to throw a Super Bowl party and need a giant TV to watch the game, rent it and return it when you're done. Most places handle delivery and pickup.
