How to get N+1 without a fight.
I hate online shopping---It's too expensive. Just ordered the go pro that I had been thinking about and Amazon had the best price.
Have over the last month been looking at a few other items for the house and just placed them in the "Wish List". On ordering the Camera-I noted that wish list and deleted a few things but placed the items I really want in the Basket. With what I ordered-I won't be riding much in the early part of the year. I'll be too busy sorting the Campavan out and putting the storage up in the bike shed.:innocent:
And a word of experience--If you want something as expensive as this- then use the right tactics. Yesterday went out to get the final Christmas presents with the wife. I went into a camera shop to see if they do the Go Pro and they didn't. Ready to go but the wife was looking at a few cameras. Her old one is a bit basic for what she uses it for and it does need replacing. So she got a camera and it left it wide open for me to get the Go Pro.
Only sometimes it gets unfair. A Few years ago I bought I bought Boreas to augment the OCR3 that was no longer up to my standard. I got a bit of stick over that as Boreas was not cheap. 6 months later and into the LBS and was not even looking for a bike except they came up with a deal on a TCR carbon that was too good to refuse and that was after mentioning that the OCR was not being ridden much. Used my loaf and That cost me a new kitchen. Then a couple of years later--I wanted to get some credit in the household and bought the wife a new car. Didn't use that credit till this year when I bought the Pinnie.
So come the new year--Get Christmas over and dusted first- and before looking at N+1 for you- Look at getting your credit rating up by buying your wife something she really wants first.
And a new fridge for the household doesn't count-not personal enough- Unless it comes with that new kitchen.
