    I did finally with great reluctance give up 20+ years of heavy metal mags for lack of space. From well known glossies I'd bought at the gas station across the street as a 10 year old to completely obscure xeroxed zines I'd been mailed over the years as a metal writer. A number of of those not even in English (U ever see a Greek heavy metal magazine? Greek IS the heavy metal alphabet!). Add to that concert fliers and posters from all over. It occupied an entire closet floor to ceiling. After finally being free of that pile I've never allowed myself collect mags again.

    I still miss all that heap sometimes when I let myself think of it, all those memories invested in studying every interview, photo and advertisements for classic LPs of bands long forgotten to all but us few crazies...

    Hey! Who threw out all my mags??

    Good topic. I was just thinking of this the other day and tallied it up. Since I started the hobby about 3 years ago, I'm into it about $1300, including supplies such as lights, light electricity, growrack, tds, water, pots, potting media, etc, etc.

    I thought that was a lot... until I saw some your guys' amounts. Makes me not feel so bad, and makes me think it's time to blow some more $$$

    i think most people have forgotten about electricity costs. My 8 bulbs lights alone, left on year round totaled about $300 alone

    The moral to this story is that CPs consume more than insects and are especially fond of money.
