I realise that the BEST time to buy toy for myself is right after I bought a bag for my wife
Wah! how come so many on this thread here got to resort to lying and coming up with all sorts of stories and means to squirrel away money to buy equipment? How to have long term happy marriage if there is no honesty on your buying habits and money? Why so scared of your wife?
Thankfully I have never had my wife nag on my purchases. Maybe I don't see the need to blow away so much $$$$ on having the best equipment. Perhaps it would help if you guys take the time to talk thru when making a commitment to big ticket items. Also never had to buy anything for my wife to "compensate" or "appease" her. Works with me.

I usually discuss with my wife and she'll go "If you think you need it, then buy lor." Sometime, even, I'll buy for you."
Guess, I'm really quite blessed.

Make photography your profession as every camera gear you buy is tax reductable.
Wife can't say anything to an income generating investment liao.
i too, am fortunate,
my wife buys me photo toys for birthday, xmas ... ...
easier for her,
she don't need to think too much about what to buy
You can't use this line without repercussions... a woman can fool around and get it easily more than a man, so be careful about saying such things to the one you love.Originally Posted by Lmodel
I'm lucky, my wife bought me my 1st digital compact, konica KD-500 few yrs ago for $900++...."they can't differentiate between lenses"? Ya, right, my wife can even tell me which of my camera focus faster and which of my wide angle or tele zoom she wants to use...
the bags, shoes and jewellery are also wants
I don't really trumpet my purchases since like what most ppl said, "Moms & Girlfriends can't tell between a 50 f/1.8 & a 50 f/1.0".
Rather I trumpet my photos instead and wow them with the results instead.
