Craigslist . . . I have created a monster!

Dh was looking for a bar for our basement and a I suggested that he look there. That was on a Thurs and we had the bar by Sunday. Well, now he's addicted. He just bought a Kenwood receiver and set of speakers today. Does anyone else have shopaholic hubbies?

  • My hubby is an eBayaholic. Yes as much as I HATE to admit it he is. He goes from one collection to the next Coins, Nascar Diecast's, Antique Tonka Trucks, Fender Guitars and the list goes on. A week b4 Christmas he bought a Marshall Amp for $1200.00 trying to justify it by saying that income tax refunds will be here soon. Men are "thick" and worse than women!

    He's been on craigslist but doesn't digg it b/c he prides himself with his more than 600 feedback all at 100%, LMAO. Thank God we don't have cc bills and a mortgage or we'd be living in the cardboard box that the new amp came it.

  • Yup. Mine doesn't buy stuff but he sure does love to look and see what he can trade and sell! We've only bought baby stuff so far! Some of those deals you just cant beat!

  • My SO doesn't really overspend or buy things very often, but he definitely spends more on himself than I do. I might shop more, but its at goodwill where he will go out and buy a set of golf clubs. I guess we're doing alright and he's entitled to hobbies, but geez! lol...makes me want to go make a big fat purchase and just say "hey honey, I decided to take up boating"
