What a wonderful, wonderful thread! I was thinking about the same thing recently. I always had hobbies that required saving up, but BJDs (in my opinion, a least) are astronomically more expensenive than anything I've done before. But it just proved to me that saving money and cutting off unneccessary luxuries as well as being resourceful are great ways for saving money and also are great for the enviroment and for the body, too. Cooking for myself, thrifting clothes, making my own coffee and tea instead of buying take aways - it saves sooo much money! And I feel happier and healthier too.
