Some people might be shocked that I am rewarding myself with a board game for every pound.
It's true, I am truly an addict of board games for sure. I get very taken with beautiful things. I also own several original pieces of art, more than many people I know. I am addicted to that shot of new and beautiful. One way to know an addiction is when a behavior is hurting other aspects of your life and you don't stop.
Now my bills are paid so what is the problem? Well, my place is not huge so storing these games will eventually become a problem. There are also other things I could be spending my money on. I could pay more for house maintenance for example. I may make some home improvements into bonus rewards after the first 15 pounds of games.
On the other hand, it is working very well to keep the rewards close together rather than forcing myself to feel like I don't deserve anything until I lost magical numbers like 10 pounds. What I do feel a little bad about is that if I wasn't doing this reward setup I would probably be buying this many games anyway.
Anyway at least I have an excuse (yay, pound down) so this time the game is Quebec.
