How often do you buy toys, and where do you get the money?

ToyGurl ToyGurl
My roommate is surprised at how often I buy toys. I have a pretty large sum in my savings, and I work everyday... So I guess, I just have the money? I actually keep a seperate account for my toy money and I try to buy a new one every month. Sometimes I buy them even more often than that.

So please choose an answer below, and describe your method of saving up for toys in the comments

I save my points from here and I also make some money, so I can buy them every month or so.

I have to limit shipments, so far I've done 2. Right now I'm satisfied with the toys I have. I figure I'll do another order at the beginning of next semester, that may include some last minute supplies for my guy's next visit

Am now a monthly buyer (sometimes more) between my paychecks & my points.
I suppose I'll slow down a bit when I have a few things I really love over all others. I've been in desperate need of good toys for years.

Collecting them is like a hobby now. Lol. And what I end up not liking so much, I give to friends in need. Then again, between that & so much other stuff on the site that's great, I just may not ever slow down.

Until recently I didn't buy toys all that often. Now I think I'm going to try and make a purchase once a month, as long as I can afford it. The points definitely help and this is turning into a great hobby as well.

I definitely know what you mean. I have a lot of toys that I like, but I often buy little things that aren't of much use to me when going solo. So I think once I get a good 4 or 5 go-to toys, I'll take a break for a bit. I really just like to try new things. I also promote masturbation at the health clinics in my area, and I'll take them into the meetings as examples. We do sex toy meetings twice a month so they all come in handy.

Just whenever I find something that I really like. I like to take it slow. I don't feel like I HAVE to buy toys or anything for that matter, every time I have extra cash. I usually have at least 2 toys in my wishlish, but a lot of times I wait until I'm actually ready for a new one. I also have several lingerie pieces in my wishlist and those will come before the toys because I switch them out. I've been working on my lingerie collection this month and have actually ended up with 9 amazing pieces! But, it really depends on how much I make that week and what bills are due, if my car needs repair (again!) so I have to put make sure my priorities are in check. Can't go buying too many toys at once when bills are due or if I didn't make as much that week on sales.

I buy twice a month.
When sales are good, then I use $, otherwise I use points.

I buy new toys as new ones come out that I want. I work full time and also earn a lot of points so it's never been any real strain on me.

I guess I make an order every 2 - 3 months.

I put a little bit of money aside from every pay check and I use the points when I can. The money I put aside isn't specifically for toys. I use it for anything I want to do (movies, paintball, camping), but toys also get purchased with it.

We make a few big purchases a year when things catch our eyes. I love EF's points program, so that helps. Otherwise I spend my mad money on toys.

I've bought a lot of new toys over the past month (since discovering this magnificent website, holding back is a lot harder to do!), but normally I'd only purchase every few months or so. As for money, I usually just use my own hard-earned dough, throwing in points whenever I've got enough to make an impact.

We buy toys when the mood strikes us for something new. Sometimes it is multiple times a month, sometimes it is 6 months before we decide to buy new toys.

Sometimes once a month, sometimes more, sometimes less. It depends on what I have points and gift cards for. I never pay out of pocket because I can't afford the toys I like out of pocket. I'm extremely grateful for EF's generosity.

At first I bought very regularly, but now I have a nice collection of toys that work well for me, so now I just wait until something catches my eye, or until there's a great sale, or until I have some points saved up.

I have my own money, so I combine that with points, although I try not to spend too much too often

I buy sporadically. I wouldn't say there's any kind of time table. Before my cache of points, I bought when what I had my eye on came to $20 bucks out of pocket plus points. Now, I have made some small purchases of just points.

I work full-time and don't spend much, so I have plenty of money in my bank account. That doesn't mean I'm rich; I just have an easy time saving. I buy a toy when I find something I really like, so I don't have a toy-buying schedule or anything. I also get bonuses from work about 4 times a year, and have been known to use those on toys! In fact, I got one around my birthday, and got myself a lovely toy that, even two or more years later, is still my favourite! Oh, if only they knew where that money was going! Ha!

I mostly use points on this site, and maybe some money here and there. I use money on other sites that have toys on deep discount.
