I've begun to do the same myself. It was an alternative to a budget. I
created a "hobby" account which is just a virtual account in Quicken.
Any money I make off of selling anything within my hobby I put into the
account to go towards future purchases. I started to realize I don't
need 4 TI-99/4a's and 5 VIC-20s, etc. Of course, if a find at a swap
meet warrants, I can always borrow from another account to cover the
purchase until I can sell off other stuff. :)

I collect whatever I can find that I don't have, but so far my collection
is 95% micro's. I guess I haven't been looking in the right places for
