So I'm new to the hobby and there's a bunch of things that I want to get. Problem is that in a month (I started getting in the hobby in June), I believe that I already spent around 1.5k. It's funny because I have nothing yet with me to show as of today. Money thrown to the wind. I'm starting to realize that I am getting a bit addicted to browsing the internet for more things to get and I want to buy them before they sell out/retire. Because of the quarantine, I found my new passion which is sewing tiny clothes for dolls and I use that as an excuse to buy more stuff. I sew because it keeps my mind busy and relaxed. I work overtime until late hours, my mom is not doing well mentally. I know that I have a tendency to buy a lot especially if I am going through rough times (like now) but I need to realize that although it's fine to make extravagant purchases once in a while, I need to be more mindful of where my money is going and budget. I'm in no means broke right now because of the 1.5k, but if I continue down that path, I don't think it's healthy to get everything I want as quickly as possible and definitely not good for my wallet. I think it's the the novelty of this hobby and the deep rooted depression that is causing me to want to buy everything I like. I know that I must not be the only one.
