Okay, so as you might know I got engaged a couple weeks back.
We got our budget (which is about an 8th of what our house will cost us). For me as an economist it's an extremely difficult thing to comprehend, throwing so much money away on 1 afternoon/night instead of using it for a 65" LED and every freaking console ever created.
I got a couple of games recently and will update this post later today with the latest editions to my collection. I also completed my final fantasy XIII-2 collection, until I read about the new dual pack coming out later this month... So I'll get that, the Crystal Edition for the 360 and two standard editions, one for PS3 and one for X360. But I'll do this over a couple of months. I must say I was very lucky to pick up the PS3 Crystal Edition for R450/$53 [Just for future reference, all the prices I'll list here will be in my local currency ZAR and converted to USD, also our sales tax is automatically added to the prices of goods. So if you think I paid too much let me know, I'd love to hear what bargains you guys get every now and then...]
My Games budget for this month has taken a serious knock since I paid for some laser therapy for the fiance. She wants to get rid of all the veins that show on her legs before the wedding in February... But because of that she guaranteed me a white Vita for Christmas. Which I can't wait for. That's another thing, lately I've been trying to get each console I own in a black and a white variant. One of these days I'll be flat broke with zero cash left for electricity, but at least I'll be able to look at all my pretty consoles.
Well that's enough of a ramble for now. I'll update a bit later and hope you guys enjoyed this. Feedback is appreciated and you are more than welcome to send me a private message.
P.S. Since house prices differ a lot and I can't measure it absolutely I'm going to do a little comparison for what else I could buy. This does exclude the honeymoon to Bali.
What the wedding money can be used for:
- My Amazon wishlist 4 times.
- 880 Sealed Copies of Final Fantasy X
- 220 PS3 Games (at RRP)
- 44 Xbox 360's
- 36 3G Vita's
- 14 Samsung Smart Plasma TV's 55"
