I probably say the same thing every year and have said it every year that I’ve had my own money to spend, but Christmas at this point becomes more and more an excuse to just spend money on myself especially with some ridiculous holiday sales out there. I’m not talking about doorbuster Walmart sales or Amazon sales even (though many of those are rather ridiculous).

When you’re a video professional, there’s a wealth of plugins and software that are prohibitively expensive but you covet and a lot of those companies hold sales such that you’re saving hundreds and hundreds of dollars. I just have to make sure that I justify the cost of my new toys even if they’re tax deductible 😉
