I have sacrificed eating hot lunches for a month or two, and just ate packed lunches. Maybe staying in with the gf as opposed to going out for dinner. But nothing major i dont buy anything outside of my means.
Nothing. My most recent acquisitions have been on the inexpensive side. I got my more expensive (home) stuff many years ago, when I was making more money. I've been happy enough with it that only minor upgrades have been made over time.
I've sold gear that I was sad to part with in order to purchase other items I knew I wanted, but for the most part, if I wanted something, often after hearing it at at meet, I'd start saving up my money bit by bit until I could afford it. My now sold K1000s sat in a sealed box for close to a year until I could find and then afford the amp I wanted. I don't mind waiting if I have a goal, and so far, it's been worth it.
well here's a thing. I got a £60 windfall today and I could have used it to buy an iBasso T3..but oooh no I thought I'd treat the missus to a nintendo DS for christmas instead. so thats like a reverse sacrifice
