The way I cured myself of wanting to buy a lot of Nikon stuff I wouldn't really use was to start buying vintage Leica stuff instead. It's a lot smaller and easier to hide in my sock drawer.

That's not a cure, that's just like moving from one drug to another.

My wife washes my socks.

But hey, I've got clean socks!

My oldest child just started college this fall. Although my NAS still exists, it is definitely in remission!

My cure is to tell myself that all of my camera kit must fit into my Pelican case. As this is now full for me to squeeze something new in I must sell an existing item to make room. I like my existing kit so I have a real disincentive to buy new stuff.

Haven't bought anything for more than a year now so it must be working!

My cure is to tell myself that all of my camera kit must fit into my Pelican case.

That works until you realize the many sizes of cases available, once you buy the next case it must be filled.
Then I discovered Toyota sold very large cases specifically designed to address NAS. My last case was a Tundra, the full size pick up type that seats five unless it is used properly for Nikon equipment, where as it will only allow room for the driver when fully equipped. No panic attack when I realized it will pull a trailer, camper, fifth wheel, etc. Lots more room....


RRRogerThe only possible cure I can think of besides death would be Incarceration or Institutionalization.

I concur +1
