Anyway, she reduced my monthly allotment to purchase cards to $100, which is fine, I am good at making it stretch usually. Barry Larkin stuff isn't very expensive. But I just spent 70% of my yearly budget on one card, and I didn't tell her....yet. I'm waiting for a doghouse moment where I can just blurt out that I bought another baseball card.
Update: my wife asked if I bought a new card. I said yes and of course, she couldn't believe how foolish I was....blah blah blah.... she's still upset but we had a nice conversation with my 7 year old son about credit, debts, and paying off debt. I'm sure he stopped caring about the time of the second sentence.
