I spent over $300 on all the James Bond and available Highlander show sets. Hopefully they'll all show up someday, my order looks like a 12 step meeting of "Backordered".

Yep, I don't know how it happened but it seems I got two copies of that title coming. Oh well, could've been worse.

With this order I've nearly cleared my wish list of CCs, as well as put a huge dent in my non-CH wish list generally.

OK, on 3 orders I spent $587 for 28 items (high average but a few box sets and Criterions).

I normally wouldn't spend that much, but it was a great sale.

Also, I've been thinning out the collection of some collectibles, and have sold over $4,000 worth of DVDs in the last 6 weeks.

Alias - season 2 was the only thing I bought because I had already dropped a ton at BB, CC, etc throughout October and November. Had I known the coupons were coming I could have saved on quite a few of my purchases but c'est la vie. The only two things I would really liked to have bought were the Super Bowl I-X set (may regret passing that one up) and the Alien Quadrilogy however waiting on that one paid off as I found it at my local used store for $35.99 on Friday
