Sears Fail & Pony Rewards Program

I stopped in Sears today to see if they carried ponies. Kmart does and the companies merged several years ago, so this doesn't seem that strange to me. Honestly I feel pretty bad for girls today. The toy isle consisted of nothing but disney crap and off brand baby dolls. Where are the ponies, littlest petshop, etc? I know when I was a kid I liked playing with animal toys!

I know this may sound silly, but I do not want to get ALL the g4 ponies like I did the g3s. I got burnt out with that and spent way too much money!

So I made a deal with myself to support my pony habit;
1. I only buy ponies I actually LIKE.
2. Other than special events, ponies are purchased with a pony credit that I reward myself with for making it through 4 workdays without buying a drink from the cafe.

In the end I should be ale to get only the ponies I really I save myself 6+ dollars a week!


  1. That's a really good idea (your self-imposed pony rewards program.) I'm doing something similar now. I also don't want to get all of the new ponies, but a lot of them are really cute, so it's hard! Of course, most of them aren't in stores around me yet, so it's not too hard. Heh.

    Anyway, I'm taking an online class this semester, and it had technical difficulties, so basically I have 5 classes (5+ hours) of classes to catch up on. I will only be able to buy Rarity when I catch up to those classes, so here I am on a Sunday afternoon, sitting in front of the computer trying to catch up.

    Glad to see others have similar collecting styles/goals.

    Good luck to you!

  2. Good luck with your classes. The rewards things is working out pretty well so far. I've been a lot better about drinking out and I really look forward to the weekend and pony hunting as my reward :)
