What about the expense?

After perusing this forum for the last few years, I can't say I remember the topic ever being discussed that I am about to mention.

We all shop around for which RV we think would make us happy. Then we try to strike the best deal. After we get the rig home, we start(and never stop) buying "toys" and other "necessary" stuff that we just can't do without. There will be items that break or wear out and need to be replaced.

Just wait I'm getting to it!

I keep a folder of items that I purchase, especially things that have a warranty and the receipt. I'm a working man(still) so I'm not on a so called "fixed income". Yeah, money is tight but when it comes to wanting/needing something, I usually get it. I shop around for the best price, read the reviews, if any, and make the purchase. Lately, since I can't go anywhere but work, I've been buying some more toys. Not very expensive items but things I've been wanting.

So, here's the question and I hope you understand where I going with this!

Do you buy things only when you need it or if you've really been "wanting" something, you buy it?

Generally I buy as needed, IF I want it, it goes before the PICOMM to await approval.

So, what do you get to do?

Wait a minute, we're going the wrong direction!

The question is: Have you got all the toys you need/want?

I know your answer already FordIdaho !

If SHE lets you have it.
