    I went a little overboard last month, so I'm going to try something that I haven't done since the day I started vaping.

    30 days without spending any money on vape supplies. I'm calling it No-Spend September.

    All stocked up on juice, plenty of Kanthal & SS, handful of batteries in my rotation. Should be good to go, right?

    Wish me luck, ECF.

    I find myself spending way too much on equipment and forgetting that the most component is the e juice... Without e juice, all I have are metal tubes, batteries, and some coils...

    I'm thinking about buying another mod, but I think I'll save that money for tasty e juice...

    Buying new e cig equipment is addictive though, more so than the nicotine it's supposed to be delivering! :)

    I hear ya. Juice can really make or break your vaping experience. A $300 device isn't much more than a paperweight if it's full of crappy juice.

    I *almost* called it off this morning, but decided to stick with it.

    Had a whole bunch of DIY supplies in my cart and everything. They'll still be there in a month, though.
    Let's just hope that e-fluid legislation doesn't pass in the middle of September or something. lol

    I have a strict, 100 bucks, notonesinglepennymore strategy towards vaping. That's why I carefully monitor my spending, and once I ordered what I need it's a NO MORE policy. Still, since it's in my budget, even if I don't need anything I order what's in the budget. So I suggest, even if you have plenty, deduct what you overspent and make an order of the most obvious supplies. Disaster could strike and yet you'd have to spare. Don't underestimate fate.

    No-Spend September makes Double-Spend October so much more fun. :p

    Guess I should join you. I went 3 months no spending then in Aug. I -
    Joined Kanger co-op - $30
    ordered from Fasttech $52
    ordered from Caterpillar Vapes $15
    Ebay for wick/wire $8

    Out of all this I really only needed the wick/wire. Guess I'm still compulsive:(

    I think it really hit home when I dropped $30 on two drip tips from Korea.

    They're the most amazing drip tips I've ever used, so it was easy to justify, but they're still just little bits of plastic.

    If I make it through this month alive, October is going to be awesome. I've had an idea about making a po' man's dripper tank for a while now. That's totally happening.

    I feel like the guy who only ate fast food for a month.

    Two weeks from now, I'll probably be sitting here crying about some "must-have" piece of gear.

    Yeah I need to ease up to but there are so many shiny things and so much juice to try. I'm new to vaping about a month in so there is alot of juice to go through. Maybe i'll slow down though..............maybe next month.
