    How do you stop spending?

    I cant stop spending. I made my first order 5weeks ago, and after that arrived a few weeks later ive made 4 more orders in the space of about 2 weeks.

    I guess my problem is due to not having found a good setup that i'm truly happy/satisfied with so i've found myself constantly ordering new things to try and improve my vaping experience.

    Currently i've spent double what i would on analogues (although i've been spending twice as long as ive been vaping).

    How does everyone control their spending?

    Dont know, let me know when you find out, 18 months on and it has turned into a hobby/addiction

    First thing is get something you like and never look at these forums again, as there is always something new and shiny to tempt you.

    LOL a lot on here don't.

    Once you have a PV, doesn't matter what it is( a battery is a battery), then all you really need is a charger, cartos/atties & juice.
    Juice & charger are easy, get a charger that works for your PV & a spare & that's done. Juice can take a while to find the perfect all day vape but most juice tastes better than any analogue ever did.
    That leaves atties/cartos, not I didn't add clearos, because clearos are actually just cartos in a clear tube. So first find out if you prefer atties to cartos orif you prefer a mix of the two in different situations. Then find what is available, do some research & try one or two or threee of each type that interests you.
    Then all you do is buy the ones you like in a big enough supply that you don't need to buy more for 6mths or so, end of spending except on juice.

    That is how you do it, buy a PV & be happy with it, knowing that it is just a battery & it is really the juice & the carto/atty that are the variables.

    You can't. This was all a trap.

    You should have listened to Kritikal; The The hardware is more addictive than the substance

    Muahahahahahahahahaha!

    But seriously... open up an excel spread sheet; make 14 columns ;

    Shipment #, Date, Months Vaping, Vendor, Order Number, Device Costs, Flavour Costs, Base-Nicotine Costs, Cartridge Costs, DIY Costs, Accessories Costs, Shipping Costs, GST, and Totals.

    Make sure you do totals for each column also, so you know how much you spend of which part of vaping. You're going to find if you purchase from overseas that your biggest expenditure is shipping. So try to maintain your purchasing to Australia.

    Things are easier to control when you can see what you've spent all nice and neatly in front of you in table form. Give yourself a yearly budget and stick to it.

    And just remember that we've all been there. We've all been a little over excited about vaping. Need to learn to enjoy what you've already got.

    Yeh, and then 2 months in they come out with a new type of clearo that even PBusardo thinks is awesome, and the ones that you yourself think are awesome are put at half price, and they've come out with an updated mars bar doubler.




    Your 6 month package method would torture me.

    Buy a Provari, Liquinator and a shitload of boges

    You won't have to buy anything for a while with that setup....until you start dabbling with rebuildables and get the best vape you have ever had and want more!

    LOL well then I'll let you spend more to get "the latest & greatest", I'll wait for reviews & widespread community testing of "better products" & be happily vaping along at budget prices, using decent gear.

    The trick is finding the set up that works for you. I found mine pretty early on so all i buy now is juice and replacement stardusts. I usually make 1 order a month and it costs me about $80.
