Originally it was just me going to school and working 2 jobs and collecting what I could on the side. A few of my bigger items I have thrown on a credit card because it makes it easier to pay off especially when you don't see them around all too often. As of late I moved in with my girlfriend who also loves my collection and loves to add to it as well. I work a basic 9 to 5 but manage my money pretty well with everything else in my life. Sometimes you have to pick and choose but for the most part I am able to grab the pieces I crave.
