Unhappy When you see a deal?

So I was wondering. When you guys see a deal on Craig's list or in the news paper about an aquarium do you also have that sudden urge to go out and purchase it? I am a owner of two tanks one ten gallon and one twenty gallon tank and I've spent over $200 getting both of them set up and every time I see some new deal online or at petco I have the urge to go buy it. I even went and bought a new hob filter that was on super discount sale that i really just did not need. Anyone else suffer from this buyers guilt/urges?

Guilty as charged! I have a few empty tanks in my garage because I couldn't pass a deal

Im still very new to the art of Fishkeeping but WOW I understand your problem I suffer from the same. I cannot hardley go by my LFS without stopping and atleast checking to see if there is a sale on rock or something else I just gotta have (not really). Sometimes I do just look at the fish for a half hour and talk with the storekeeper without purchasing. ah maybe there is hope.

I immediately call or text when I see something juicy. It's better to have the option of buying than being beat out. i am actually tormenting a guy whohas a 125g and stand for $100. I messaged him the minute he posted. lol Still waiting to hear back.....

Mayb have to call him again, I really want this one. LOL That's what I always say...

I bought my 125 for $100 off of someone on CL also. I jump on the really good deals if I have the money for them. Right now, since I don't have money to spend on stuff like that, and don't really need any particular tanks, I just don't check craigslist for them. Out of sight, out of mind.
