Haha, well I'll say I've considered it, but it's kind of a pain since I regularly transfer them all out to the living room and dining room for retro game nights. Soulshine can attest... I throw a pretty mean retro gaming party.

My collection was once 750+ games with a NES/SNES/N64/GC/Genesis/Sega CD/Saturn/Dreamcast/xbox/360/ps1/ps2/ps3. I sold off the vast majority and currently just have a ps3/360/U/GC. My collection is 180 games. I figured out a few things. One, I don't have that much space to store all this crap. Two, I was never going to have the time to play that many games. Three, I got quite a bit of money for some of my older games. Thanks to VC downloads, I still have some of the old classics like Ocarina and LttP. I really didn't need that much stuff, not when I have other hobbys. Sure there are some classics games that I loved that I no longer have, but it isn't world ending. Just my thoughts. Congrats Pacino, I believe you are making the right choice. :)

You wrote a check for your house or car, then I take it? That's what I thought.

Ehh... Having debt is not necessarily living outside of your means. You can still have a mortgage and car payment and live within your means.

For my car, yes; my house, no. But, who writes a check for their mortgage anyways?

Maybe I should have clarified because I assumed you were talking about CC's, high-interest financing, and other meaningless forms of debt.

If not, then I apologize. A home is actually "good debt" because you build equity. Just about anything else, including cars, is bad debt.

Another great find I got a few months ago was a Sony brand wireless headset for the PS3. Complete and never opened. I paid like $30-40 only.

It was at the time you borrowed the money.

I bought my car outright with a check.

Being 100% honest here, I could if I wanted too. I use debt when interest rates are lower than what I can make via investments. My car loan is 0.9% while my mortgage is 4%. I can make 6-8% on my money, hence why I went with a loan. But if I had too, yeah I could write a check for my car and house. Granted I work hard and refuse to be a leech on society. I try to make this country a better place day in and day out, instead of just making it worse and contributing to the problem. Purposely living outside one's means is a shoddy way to live. We are all paying for people who act that way, have more respect. For the record I am not saying everybody needs to be able to write a check for their car and/or house. More just saying those who purposely and willfully buy stuff they know they can't afford simply because the government will bail them out are henious people who should be deported. Getting a loan for something you can afford over the long run isn't the same thing as buying something you know is out of your league. One is living inside one's mean, while the other isn't. :)

I have family members who just spend like no other and get essentially a free pass by declaring bankruptcy a few years later. They aren't suppose to be able to get a loan or CC for 7 years after their delcaration, but that is never the case. They repeat this cycle over and over. I find it appalling. There is no free lunch, we are all paying for their childish behavior.

You have some serious classics in that NES collection. I would try to sell it as a collection only, since once the valuable games are gone, you'll probably be stuck with a lot of non-sellable games.

I was jk. Thats a smart way to buy a car. Hopefully, by the time I need a new car, I will be able to do the same. Unless interest rates are as low as they currently are, then its not really that big of a deal.

I refuse to (edit)ever file bankruptsy in my life. Nobody is going to pay off my debt. I'll sell everything I have if I need to. I guess that is just how I was brought up....or it is my pride.
