I posted this in the "Collector's Challenge" thread as well, but thought maybe it should have its own thread for those who don't participate in the challenge. Anyways, do any of you have a general "collecting budget" in mind from month to month. Obviously, it averages out, but is there a target amount you attempt to stick to on a monthly basis? It always depends on what is available, sometimes a lot of stuff hits at once...and sometimes its a dry spell like you've never seen...and then there are years like this where there is all kinds of stuff hitting in a 2-3 month span. Anyways, when I first started collecting Star Wars, I pretty much kept to a $30ish/month budget or so, and that worked pretty well. Then more and more Star Wars stuff came out, and my interests also branched off into other lines (Marvel, LOTR, DC), so I unfortunately waved bye-bye to that budget awhile ago. This year has been especially bad (basically 3 to 4 times that), and I'm hoping to return to a more $30-$50 range from here on out. My wife would rather me go to $10-$15/month, but I told her I thought that was too low . Anyways, does anyone else here set a rough budget for themselves...or thinking about it?
