I’m afraid my budgeting is pretty much see it, “ooh! shiny”, want it, buy it!

I thought that was the established standard. Although I haven’t attended a wargames show for quite a while now, my method for shows was to try not to spend more money than was in my wallet at the time. All the best, John.

For many years that was my approach too.  I’d withdraw a wad of cash from an ATM and when it was gone I’d leave.  Unfortunately remote chip & pin terminals put paid to that tactic.  No cash?  No problem.  As others have written, time is my budget now.  I’m much older than I’d like to be, and I have to be realistic with what I devote my remaining time to.  Consequently, if the product before my eyes doesn’t fit into one of two well established collections then it doesn’t get bought.  No more flights of fancy or “oooh, shiny” for me now.  ☹️

Less enthusiasm, please. This is Britain.
