Thanks much all. I've gotten a lot more targeted with my purchases; fewer, better items. Part of that is my self-imposed "sleep on it" rule when I get gaga at something on first blush. Unfortunately, I've lost a couple of items that I've later kicked myself for. This felt like one of those really right pick ups that I didn't want to lose so I jumped on it and went to bed thinking "maybe I should have waited". But, when I look at it this morning, I'm still as thrilled as I was when I pulled the trigger. Y'all's concurrence helps me think "yep, good call" too.

Neither do I, but I'm going to have to get into some sort of rehab. Even getting myself down to just "fewer, better purchases" isn't net helping my balance sheet!
