My wife & I have a unique arrangement. We are completely financially independent of one another. She works hard for her money....its her money and what she spends it on is none of my business. The same goes for me. as long as we each have our part of the money to cover our living expenses. There are no issues. In fact in the 20 years we have been married we have never had a money argument because of this arrangement. Oddly enough you might consider this the blackest op of all because there is no accounting for anything!! LOL

There's a firm 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy in my family. As long as the lights stay on and the mortgage is paid, I'm good.

In the past I was black ops buyer throwing away all reciepts. Always claiming to have the same kit I just perpetuated the lies until I got tired and said the hell with it. Like said b4 the lights are on the mortgage is paid the heat is bumped up to 75 and all is well on the homefront.

But I do remember when the glove compartment was my filing cabinet for my hobby shop reciepts and i ran the same kit for 3 years LOL I would leave packages in the back of the truck just not to have a convo about them then sneal them in during the night.... You are right black ops had more danger to IT

I have an 'allowance'; a set amount of money to spend on this hobby per year. It has worked very well, and it would work better if it was by season, not monthly so I could cover seasonal expenses like engines and batteries easier. Kinda crazy that I spend $2400 a year on this. Still, it's about the cheapest form of racing you can find.

I wish I had that much control over my spending habits LOL.... I am in the deep end of the pool and always over board and under....

If you were addicted to cigarettes and lived in Chicago that's what you'd spend a year on the habit if you only smoked a pack a day.

Default How many are runnng secrey ops

Hell, my last wife told me if I bought anymore RC "crap" as she called it, she was going to leave.
So on the way down to the shop to pick up two new engines, I was kind enough to also pick up some moving boxes for her.

Now, I dont have any problems with how much I spend on my "addiction" to RC,plus just think, now I have so much more room to store everthing.
