YOU must stop buying toys, YOU must stop buying toys, YOU must stop buying toys, YOU must stop buying toys, YOU must stop buying toys....
WARNING! Pay no heed to this advice! Take it from someone who KNOWS!
I TRIED to stop buying toys once. It was a disaster. I went into with-drawl. My condition worsened. I ended up spending MORE, and had to double the garage from 500 to 1000 square feet. For a while, I didn`t think I was going to make it. Thank GOD my wife was able to help talk me down.....averting a physical breakdown, and financial ruin.
Now I`m back to my previous levels of "collector addiction", and am able to keep it under control with only a few purchases a month.
PLEASE be careful with the "cold turkey" method. If you MUST cut back, then just focus on those "special" pieces.....but do not just STOP all together, or you WILL be sorry.
We`re here for you, man!
