    Default Collecting Anime Stuffs a waste of money?

    Yes I am collecting stuffs of animes, especially Fullmetal Alchemist and Naruto.
    My collection is somehow big now, (manga, nendoroids, figmas, etc.) and my cousin suddenly computed for its total cost.

    Soo what do you think?

    I'm poor. So some parts of me think that it is. But on the second thought, I am doing what I love and as long as I know my limits, then there's nothing wrong about it. :)

    It's not a waste for me, especially if I saved my own money just to buy those stuffs. :3

    It shouldn't be a waste of money. You're spending money on things that is the fruit and contributor to your happiness and passion, so spending your money on things like that should never be a waste of time or money.

    if it'll give you a sense of happiness then that's it but be responsible of buying things you love to collect. If you don't have much money then use your money wisely but if you have your income then it depends on you :>

    No, I don't think so. Collecting items is a passion as well. Things such as anime collection for Otakus like us are not useless. It signifies how much we treasure our stress reliever. I would rather spend my money buying things that makes me happy than spend it to useless things.

    If you see value in it then it's not a waste. For me it would be. There are lots of cooler stuff you can buy :P

    I don't think it's a waste of money. unless you constantly cause yourself to go broke every payday. I'd honestly collect merch too but I has no money at the moment.

    It all about a matter of interest. If you think that spending money for something that doesn't really affect daily life as a waste, then it is but if you think of it as a matter of satisfying your own interest because you have the means, then it is not.

    I don't think it's a waste of money IF you have THE money to buy those stuffs. As long as it makes you happy and you know the limits and priorities on which would be the first to buy IF your WANTS or your NEEDS then it's fine.

    It would be a waste of money IF there are things that needed to buy before those stuffs. It would be bad IF you've been pushing to buy the stuffs even when you're out of money. Right?

    As long as you can afford it and it doesn't take away from the things you need to buy then i see nothing wrong with it. For that matter collections can help you in the long run because eventually they will be worth a lot of money ... so you'll have a nest egg for your future. Whether that is college, a vacation you always wanted to take, your kids college fund, etc.....
    So yeah not a bad thing.
