I am a big fan of tiny dolls. I realized a while ago that I easily put them on my mental wish list because I was budgeting them as inexpensive. We are constantly exposed to dolls that cost hundreds, sometimes around a thousand dollars. Tinies, in comparison, seem cheap. People often internally price things relative to other items in the same category. For example, in a dollar store, you are surrounded by items that only cost a dollar, sometimes two. A $5 dollar item seems quite a hefty price. Similarly, we are surrounded by items that cost $500, $600. A tiny that costs $150 seems inexpensive. I wonder if this affects our budgeting significantly when we buy tinies. If we were looking at a non-doll item that cost $150-$200, would we treat it differently? Edit: I read the replies, and people have brought up some very interesting points. I guess the debate would be "whether or not items and dolls that cost a fraction of the price of an SD sized doll are budgeted as inexpensive"
