Well I've now found out the plant my father works in is closing in febuary, that means now after I complete all my Transactions for this month it will have to be a very very restricted spending budget. As much as I hate to say it I may have to stop buying Transformers all together. So Starting January I will be in Conserving Mode.... I haven't had to do this in a LONG time and it is hard to get over the impulse buying habits I've seemed to develop over the years. I guess you can say I've reached my peak, the top of the mountain and it's starting to go downhill a little bit. So it's time to stop and hit the brakes with spending....dang it's just so damned hard to do now. Due to the fact I collect many other things than Transformers and haven't completed a few things that I'd really like. Just wish I could have done that earlier. Not going to let it get me down, already been down enough for the later half of 2008. I have been focusing on Priorities to get lately and acquired many that I am looking for which is good. Now the downside is that a few figures are coming out that I'm looking for and there are maybe a few older figures I'd like to get just at the moment need to pass up on things. Anybody else in this situation or getting to it as the Economy continues it's downward spiral and the shockwaves from that start to affect everyone else? Still though just got to work very hard now to get my mental thinking from the "Oh I'll get that,get that, get that, oh and that one too." to the " Don't need to spend money on that right now it's not important, save money." mindset. I guess it's to be expected, when a collection like mine has expanded to crowding up my room for about 4-6 straight months eventually it'll come to a screeching halt. I'm sure of one thing, at least I'll be happy that I will build up a little bit of savings if I decide to stop collecting for a while [at the time when many things I want and have been waiting for for months to come out get released] Anyone got any advice on how to sever the hold of that evil plastic crack we know as Transformers? Edit-Mods please move this to the General Discussion part....I posted in the wrong area! Do'uh!
