Re-focus: This time it's serious

This fandom is havoc, I say! Havoc! D:

It's hard to focus when there are so many cool toys out there. I've only been collecting seriously for just under two years, and I'm just now starting to realize that if I don't FOCUS and make a PLAN then I am just going to end up with a ton of junk.

Actually, I have to rephrase that because nothing Sailormoon is junk to me. I will just end up with a ton of it. :D Having a lot of Sailormoon stuff is great, but having great Sailormoon stuff is better. If I spend all my time and money buying up every little shiny that catches my eye on eBay, I will never be ready when THOSE ITEMS come along.

Hey, it's already happened to be before. I had a few hundred dollars in my PayPal account last year and I went on a spending spree. I bought any little thing that ticked my fancy. What happened? The Materials Collection showed up the next week and sold for $170, well within my range a week before. Tragic, really. And that's not the only time I've seen one of THOSE ITEMS show up at the most inopportune times.

I'm getting organized. I made a list of the items I want. I am going to prioritize this list and focus on the items that I really want the most. Will there still be purchases of opportunity? Will there still be impulse buys for that "OMG too cute" plushie? Sure there will be. But at least I will FEEL like I know what I'm doing. At least maybe this time, when one of THOSE ITEMS shows up for sale I just might be ready.

Put on your game face, it's eBay time! *dance*

My extensive Wish List is here. Serenity help me :P

I do the same thing! At least, I used to be really bad about it. Planning really helps, but my collection grows really slowly now too :/ oh well..
