i know that, M...i get all that, however...
it bears repeating: mccartney is not the only thing i (and, i'm sure, others) buy/collect/like/ love...and my entertainment budget is often, as are for most, somewhat limited...
for instance..if i over spend on New, i would be unable to buy all the wide variety of things i already consume: today alone, by betting that i can get some
version of New through a local retailer that'll i'll be content with...i took that extra $10 or so and bought 'los super seven - canto' and
the new lee child/jack reacher book for my wife (brownie points !) both of which, by careful shopping, i got for less than retail...
the long 'n short is...while i am sooo
there...it's only up to a point: that measly $6-10 extra depletes immediately
what i can do in other areas
true, as you said (and i alluded to), others are that bad or worse
...but i don't buy that stuff, either...
immersion sets ??? NOT
for instance, personally, i am every bit as much a stephen king fan as i am of mccartney...yet, i do not buy limited editions unless they are the only ones
(the first 4 dark tower books ? the ones we were all told would never, ever appear in any regular format ?? i still
bought the less expensive, everyday trade editions ($20/30-40), not the high priced, spiffed up ones($100/200-500 !!)): put a discounted trade against high priced, tho nifty, special ?? no question at all every time...
i will shop around for the most at the best price not because i am cheap, aw, heck no !!
...but because then i can buy even more, other stuff with the savings !!
ah, well...it's all good...i'll more than live...tain't worth gettin' all hepped up o'er, right
