You don't budget an addiction. Addictions, by their very nature, really screws with our priorities. Why should RC be any different.

I take comfort reading I am not alone. That's what a support group is for, isn't it?

No budget, and a wife who likes my hobby! Life is good!
There have been times in my life when I couldn't afford to spend anything on this addiction, but things have a way of changing and now I'm at a point where I have plenty of disposable income and I can pretty much spend whatever I want on my planes.

I really dont need to budget, but I have found a great way to loose weight.
Spend money on hobby instead of food!
Now if I could just convince my wife and daughter that rice and beans 7 days a week is good for you

My Wife spends 3 times more on Her stuff every month, so She better NEVER tell me anything.

I work at a LHS and that is my "Fun Money". Besides if was spending a whole months wages on r/c every month then SOMETHING is definately wrong.
