Let's face it, Most of us have those Gaia moments when we want to save up gold, but end up not doing it and loosing it all badly. You just want to keep it in case something really good or better comes out to have it. Then you spend it,the item drops in price, you end up disliking what you bought, and you have to work back up to earn what you lost!
Tell me GCD, Have often do you try to safe all the gold you have?Did you ever end up loosing a lot of gold that you try to keep for something better?
I have lost plenty of gold do to buying items to early, or in a bad time. .__.
I'm pretty good at not spending my gold most of the time, but I definitely have my weak moments.
I usually won't splurge on one big item. The gold disappears quickly if I find a bunch of semi-cheap items.
The last time I was able to save up my gold for a dream item was in December for my Butter.
I don't know if I'll ever be able to save up that much again though. u__u
That just happened to me yesterday. just took my gold to buy a few items to make a specific outfit. First time I splurged like that. But usually I save my gold to like 500k or 1 mil then spend it all in one rush on items in my wishlist.
Honestly, I said I wasn't going to spend any gold until like,
March. I thought this in December. Let's just say.. I ended up spending
50 mil on junk I don't need and I will never be able to earn that back easily
with the lazy schedule I am in right now. Ughhh.
But I can safely say I ain't gonna do it anymore. Maybe. emotion_awesome
Very few items really force me to buy them so I end up doing pretty well saving them. The only exception would be EI's/REI's because I collect them so I scoop one up whenever one is released. They are released slow enough though that it doesn't really drain my gold. smile
