My hobbies are not really expensive, not for me at any rate. The total costs of my hobbies since December of 2019 have been well below $1,000 USD, I find ways to enjoy them without expending money. When I do spend money on hobbies, such money spent will last me for years. I often feel guilty about bragging about things I enjoy, when such things become expensive - the things I spend money on are often done so when there is a deal, and they are rare or purchases I made before they became popular. I have the benefit of age on my side when it comes to hobbies, there is an accumulation that favors me and an appreciation on my own part, for what I do have. One thing that does bother me, is that people that eventually find enjoyment of the things I do, drive up the costs.. lol.. Usually, this demand is driven through some social media platform or another, and people flock to it like crazy. Oh well, I just move on. I usually find my hobbies, before they become mainstream.
I would never spend beyond my reach and at the expense of my loved ones for my hobbies. I remember a time, in the 90s when I was collecting old computers, because I thought they were cool, and I could do so at an outrageously cheap price. Now the things I bought then, are going for hundreds if not thousands of dollars, it is pretty crazy. When things go that out of hand, I find ways around them.. I try to convince others to do so as well. My hobbies, are not the result of popularity, which ultimately results in my favor. The thing that is funny, is eventually, the things I am interested in, do become popular and expensive though.
