Here Here! I remember my childhood and the joy and anticipation of saving up for something I really, really wanted. More to the point, I think that you appreciate the "whatever" more and are more inclined to look after it than just "flashing the plastic" to "get it now"! The other aspect of waiting is that it gives the chance for reflection and reconsideration which "buying in haste" does not. One can explore different options and make informed choices rather than the "Got to Have It NOW!!" that may lead to regrets later! This forum helps with advice and helps make good choices (mostly)!
