I try to keep things in perspective...I use to have a motorcycle (since sold due to layoff and no place to really store it at my house).
Bought new, probably paid around $8k or so for it.
Money spent on the BBQ habits the past couple of years...maybe a couple of hundred dollars...grand at most and that includes the grill patio I just put in.
Now granted kids has re-adjusted my priorities a bit...but with exception of wanting to pick up a Weber gasser when my current one gives up the ghost I'm pretty happy.
