Same here, I'm saving up to go to Japan once I get out of school. Got 2k so far, but I love to spend so I need a lot more. I've always just brought cheap clothes with me when travel so i can through them away and stuff my suit case full of the stuff I get. =3
I know right! I think I used five inches thick of bubble-rap for each of the three paintings. The first thing my mom asked when she saw all the stuff i got was were I got the money to buy it all. I just said, "saved up for the trip, but now even the hobos back home will laugh at me."
