I used to spend at least $5 every month on the MCs partly because I wanted them but largely because I liked the site enough that I wanted to chip in and support its existence. I bought a handful of Cash Cards too.
Now i just watch free Cash videos sometimes because I don't have an personal connection to the site and its creators any more.
so... yeah, by being a "cash sucking cesspit", as Warwood so eloquently put it, they've been getting way less money from me.
Is it arrogance? Do I want to show off to everyone that I have a nice looking avatar with lots of expensive items?
OF COURSE NOT! -equips every expensive item she owns- xpwink
I used to spend a lot on Gaia. I think the last mill I needed for my angelic scarf was pretty much funded with MC letters. I disgust myself. emo I don't have much in the way of expendable income anymore, so I haven't bought much GC in recent years, but I don't think it was a waste in the long run. I have spent a LOT of time here, so in the end I'm sure it has paid itself off.
Another reason I don't really buy much cash anymore is because I completed my dream avatar several years ago and haven't felt a burning desire for anything new in a while. I think the only thing I flipped out over was that new polar bear rig pet, but thankfully my brain told me I wasn't allowed to sell my organs for rigs. Stupid brain being all logical. scream
