My wife knows that if she doesn't put a leash on my spending, I'd blow all kinds of money on toys. We each had a $50 per pay personal allowance every 2 weeks but we got a new car back in April so that's knocked down to $25 per pay. Other than knocking me for being a nerd, she doesn't really say anything about it. She even gave up a room in our house for all my crap, suggested that I hang some planes from the ceiling in said room, and made her parents get me a nice cabinet to display them in. As long as the stuff doesn't leave the room I'm good.

She spends her money on shoes.
I spend my money on Toys and gadgets.
We're both happy.

My wife is cool about my toy collecting. She actually runs around the house saying "Knowings half the battle! GI JOE". She knew several months ago I was going to go on a toy buying frenzy. She jokes with my son, a recently converted joe fan, that I play with my toys at night when they are sleeping... I plead the 5th!!!

My wife is cool with my collecting. She hunts for me and with me. Occasionally she'll ask me to wait on a purchase for a short time but she is supportive of my collecting none the less.

Mine only has a problem when I do stupid stuff like go out and get retarded amounts of stuff but didn't grab some groceries....like when the new Transformers stuff came out, that I did spend a little way too much on...
I am fortunate that she has said "your gonna die sometime, and you can't take money with you...go get that damn toy you want"
She is also happy that its not guns, booze and strippers like the rest of the people I know.
Oh and I live with her, she ain't got the final say. She might complain some, but whatever.
Punk rock, Horror movies,Hasbro, and MY SENSE OF HUMOR ruined my life.
Wanted: Vintage Joes, Punk records and G1 Transformers.
