    Default 2019 Collecting Resolutions??

    Well 2018 is behind us and now it's time to make our 2019 resolutions.

    I for one always start the year off with some deep meditation to come up with a "plan". Some years I follow it and others go off track.

    For 2018, I was pretty good. Some unexpected "opportunities" presented themselves but overall I achieved my goals as much as I could.

    For 2019, my resolution are to
    - Acquire one of each of the Luftwaffe flight clasps,
    - Finally locate a really nice Luft P/O and Retired Pilot award (that I can afford)
    - Add a few more German helmets,
    - Start building out my US awards collection (got a bit of a head start in Dec )


    So I ask! Do you start the year with a plan? If so, what are your goal?
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    For me there is never a plan (I'm not that smart)! but the way it works for me is- I find something in the junk pile that's missing something, then it's mission on (pending The Wifey!)

    I collect autographs, so my goal is typically one "big" name, such as a well-known general or otherwise notable figure. Sometimes I come upon great opportunities that allow me more than one. I hope to continue my tradition!

    My goal is to stay focused and spend less.
    The last couple years, I've bought some big ticket items (considering my
    very small budget) Of coarse the minute I say this, the next "gotta have it"
    variation will pop up and then I'm back to having to choose between paying
    the light bill or buying a cross.

    I think it's time for another meeting---
    Hello, my name is Greg and I'm addicted to collecting ....

    Live to ride -- Ride to live

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.

    Mmmm. My goal to to get more helmets lol and to locate more hiding spots inside the house. As for a plan...not too sure that the words ‘plan’ and ‘helmets’ can ever really be used in a sentence with any real intent behind them.

    In all seriousness, my goal is to practice restraint and hold back for a couple of nice named lids including an M40 and a nice SD 42. Perhaps another nice camo WW1 helmet. And to work towards completing my WW1 Storm Trooper mannequin.

    Anyway, that’s the plan....the reality may be very different.
