Nothing wrong with saving money, provided you won't have to buy another wallet next year because yours falls apart or anything like that. I'll buy something expensive if I think I'll get my money's worth out of it. I should never have to buy another wallet ever again unless this one is stolen or I accidentally toss it into a wood chipper or something like that. Buy quality, cry once.

Well, if Art's $5 wallet lasts only a year, and he has to replace it, he's got 15 replacements to go before he hits $80. That's 15 years. Remember, Art's not planning on living any longer than that. <grin>
