    5. - your garage has turned into a junkyard
    4. - you have enough cardboard boxes to build a life-size castle
    3. - you give up one meal a day so that you can have $10 more to buy stuff with
    2. - you are constantly on the internet looking for killer deals
    1. - your credit card company calls you to verify all your recent purchases, because they think fraud might be happeneing.


    what's sad, is that #1 happened to me last night :ph34r:

    I've got a personal loan that's at 8% fixed that I can write checks out from...

    They're out of state checks, so the banks have to hold the funds to make sure they're available, right? Not any more. I've written so many of these checks, that my bank now trusts that the funds are available, and there is no hold. SWEET. :)

    $1200 later, I've got a new turbo, manifold, GE oil sammich adapter, and Tial wastegate sitting at my doorstep. Pics to come. :)
