Yikes.  As you can see, Black Friday was my Achilles’ heel – the fateful day when I bought a whopping $900 DJI Mavic Pro drone and a $300 Nintendo Switch* console (with game).  But that’s okay, because these weren’t spontaneous purchases.  Rather, they were the product of months of research.

Well okay, maybe not so much the Nintendo.  That was just an extended wait for a good deal hehe.**

But the drone we plan to use at our wedding next year.  After all, a $900 drone is a frugal alternative to a $5,000 videographer.  Especially since videography is kind of my thing.

Other than that, things have been smooth as usual.  Just a couple more paychecks and I’ll be a quarter millionaire.^^

**Once I’ve squeezed every last bit of fun out of the Switch, you can bet it’s going on Craigslist
