So while reading a post by Dusky in the Show N' Tell forum, I had an idea. this could be a guideline when trying to decide "Hmm...should I get this pony, or not?"
One should never pay for ONE pony, more than 3 times their age, until you reach 50. Then it becomes, ...more than twice your age. (LOL Id like to see an 80 year old woman buying a $160 pony for herself!) This is good because if you're young, you probably dont have much extra money anyway....and if you're older, you probably have earned more money an hour etc. :) That tops me out at $57 per pony. So far...mission accomplished! lol

I'm not doing so well....lol. Mimic and MB Lightening both cost me more that three times my age. I think those are the only two.

Ooh. I paid 380 for rosey posey. I should have only paid 75 according to the chart. I do have extra money laying around though. I use it as firewood. Gets nice and cold in winter and the 50 dollar bills burn better than the 20 dollar ones. Just kidding :wink:

I guess I'm doing good, I've never spent more than 3 times my age on a single pony.

Three times my age. Uh...sixty nine. Well...all my loose ponies except for...one, I think, and all my MIP ponies except for...maybe two fit into that category.

So aside from a few sins, I'm good to go on this theory ;)

We won't apply it to my Jem collection. Eeks!
