View Full Version : Frustration - So Many Things, So Little Money?

Wandering around HMV and GAME yesterday, I was increasingly bothered at how many things I want! A TR Anniversary guide screaming out to me . . . an early edition of TR 1 (which I might buy tomorrow, actually) . . . game consoles . . . a Series One-Ten boxset of Friends - Futurama - Scrubs . . .

Is anybody else irritated at how their mind craves possessions that can't be bought all at once. I mean, many more DVD's and games are being released soon, and it's purely torture.

Anybody else suffering this illness? :p

I suffer from a slightly modified version of that curse. With my slightly weird work schedule, I find that I don't actually have much time to shop for CDs, DVDs etc anymore. And what adds to my despair is that most of the albums I want can only be found on Amazon *sigh*

I'm always working overtime so I can afford to keep up the spending...burns a hole in my pocket every time I get paid. I do set myself limits though and sometimes it's tough to stick to them. I don't buy much in the way of tv shows on DVD though as I find I only watch them once.

If I am caught short it's usually because I haven't been to the bank and I end up a mere few notes shy of getting something extra that I want.

I feel somewhat opppsite. Got the money but don't have the :cen: time!

Somone else started a thread about all the good games about to come out. And that is so true. But how am I going to find the time to play them?!

When I say I got the money btw I am talking about for games here not new car money.:D

Nah. There are very few DVDs and games that I would consider renting, let alone buying. In fact I rarely want much at all, and frequently have cash to spare, which I just put aside and save.

Yup. There's so many things I want, but being only 12, well, that's not really possible now is it.

Yeah, especially nowadays where its the safest job ever... Not like there are people who will do something to harm me... Besides, paper routes are all done by Mexicans (not joking) here in California.

Know the feeling. There are plenty of nice things out there true, but the idea of going crazy over it seems daft to me. It's just stuff (good stuff maybe, but still stuff :p). I prefer to save.

I have a part time job, and being only 126, I have therefore got quite a bit of cash. Last month I spent all of my money bar 40 Quid, but this month I have spent like 50 quid so far...

If I had the money I'd so be MAKING time to shop, lol...but no money :(

I'm obsessed with clothes, and I still don't have TR Anniversary, and I need a piano and a decent microphone and a computer that I can record stuff on, so basically a recording studio would be awesome...OH and a car :pi:

Usually, I have the money; my birthday and christmas are relatively close together, so around that time I am usually hit by an overdose of cash which will last me the whole year with some left over (I am quite thrifty).

It doesn't really bother me, my current job pays well so if I want something I can usually go buy it, but right now I don't need that much. On the weekend I bought Resident Evil Apocalypse special edition DVD because I had a crazy craving to get it for some reason. lol

Egads, you're 126??? :eek:
