	My monthly bank statement usually does the trick.

- ------------------------------
My wife and I made a wise decision when we first got married to budget 
all of our expenses.  We included a monthly budgeted amount for camera 
equipment.  Fortunately, I made quite a bit more money back then. 

Since I'm now the staff photographer for a non-profit organization, I'm 
billing work at near cost and the money received goes into the 
department overhead instead of my pocket.  And my bosses would never 
approve the purchase of anything Leica.  So, my camera budget is a bit 
tighter.  (Is that violin music I hear in the background)  I sold some 
and am selling the rest of my Hasselblad stuff to buy Leica,  I'll have 
enough to get at least two more lenses.  I certainly won't buy the 
fixed EOS lenses I had planned on getting and will instead put the 
monies towards M equipment.   I'm not selling my EOS stuff by the way 
nor much of my FD equipment and I won't be selling my daughters toys 

And I thought Dengue fever was bad.  (yes, I picked that up on a large, 
infamous island just south of Florida)
