So I was sitting down and making some trade packages tonight and I wondered how everybody else did their trade packages.
I'm really cheap and I reuse my bubble mailers. Peel off the stickers and mark out the name's and addresses and kaboom I've got my trade package.
I'm so cheap once that I got a TTM back once and the post office forgot to cancel the stamp. So being the cheap self I am I went ahead and tried to peel the stamp off. I completely failed, but still it just shows you how cheap I am.
I was wondering how cheap you are in this hobby. For example, I try to always stay away from the $3 pack ripoffs. I usually just go and buy crap loads of $1 stuff like Opening Day.
Sometimes it sucks being a penny pincher because I can't get myself to pull the trigger on some cards that I do really want.
For example, the last card shop I went to was in Birmingham Alabama and the guy had a 2012 Bowman Joe Kelly Autograph for $5. Being the idiotic teenager I am, I just couldn't buy it because I didn't think it was worth that much. So yeah it does kind of suck getting into the habit of always trying to find the cheapest deal on things.
But the real question at the end of the day is. Are you a penny pincher? Because I know I am. Feel free to join the bandwagon. And don't forget to have a happy time blogging everybody! :)
