Ouch both Broem and Brian having the whip cracked on them....j/k kidding fellas
I'm SO glad my fiancee is a (former) collector as she gets it. She KNOWS I've ben waiting and wanting an AT-TE since first seeing it in AOTC. And even got excited at the new BMF.
It helps too that I made the decision myself to cut my budget in half. So she's benefitted from that with dinners out, I'm paying more than my "share" of bills, etc. So it's all good.
WOW Sal's marrying a former collector, Jeez we should all be so lucky. But it looks as if she's turning you over to her darkside, cutting your budget!?!? it's SUPPOSED to increase not decrease.
She had nothing to do with me cutting my budget. I've actually been planning on this for two years now. The idea is that I cut my budget this year in half, then in 2009 half again, then in 2010, down a total of 10% of what my spending was in 2007. I'll be 40 next year, so I thought for myself that it was time to draw back on collecting. Hasbro's slim pickings in the past couple of months has made this easy so far. That and the animated line I'm NOT collecting will help me stay on target.
Again she had nothing to do with my decision, even though it has benefitted her.
As for increasing....I spent $6K in 2007 on SW stuff. I don't have the room nor funds to increase how much I spend. (I've already got a 10X25 storage unit that is 90% filled.) It's time for me to slow down. I've had my fun and will continue to, just in a decreased capacity.
