Take all of her shoes out of the closet and pile them in the living room floor. Look at her and say "I rest my case, end of discussion".

First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.
What you require is a different sales slip that shows you got it for a third on sale, come home with three items you purchased at a great sale and tell her about the thousands you saved. Remember a woman will spend a dollar to buy a two dollar item she does not need and a man will spend two dollars on a dollar item he needs. I bet she will get it.
Good luck Slippy.

It's a sad day indeed … when Slip calls out for HELP!! Then again, aging with grace (also known as Mrs Slippy) isn't really a bad thing.

Don’t ask me about “wife advice”. I’m on my 3rd wife. I still haven’t figured them out!
Your house yall have to work it out. The RPR in 6.5 CR was one of those deals wife forced me to purchase it. Heading into 40 years I bet the two of you will get it figured out. Get your 6.5 CR. You will like it.
New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

After reading this Obama said I am on it.
Are you a nightmare? Is she crazy? I dunno, prolly not either of these two things. I say Mr Slippy can have his proverbial cake and eat it, too....
Why don't you ask her to get you that gun for Christmas? That could be your big Christmas present. Tell her you're really hoping to see it all wrapped up and pretty underneath the tree. Then she has to buy it for you, otherwise Christmas will be ruined, totally and completely ruined.

Sloppy just needs to give MRS Slippy the winning mega bucks lottery ticket for the next drawing and all will be right in the world. Then after he gets the 6.5 creedmoor he needs to pick up a .224 Valkyrie.
It is an evil society that blames the tool for the actions of its user.
Slippy, after 36 years this is what works for me. First no matter what I'm looking at it's for her next Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas, etc. Then when it comes in if she sees it tell her how she spoiled the surprise and your never gonna try to surprise her again, if all she wants to do is snoop. Then take what ever it was put it away and never mention it again.

Slippy, Annie is right. Sometimes we get all wrapped up in our hobbies, and we have to reel ourselves back in. I have purchased all the edged tools I need, want or lust over, and the real adult in all us must "know when to say when."

Here's what I did. Being practical, I found those "field strip technology" knives were what I really needed--but how did that effect my wife? Well, some of those items make great eating utensils, so when we go to my wife' favorite restaurant (which doesn't provide knives) I take two blades with me, one is for her.
Yes, yes, I lost a Tuxedo switchblade, but it was a small price to pay to have her guide me in my hobbies as a co-conspirator rather than a strident harpy stewing over the credit card bill.
Toys will come and go, but we both have decades or history with our mates. Let her inside your hobbies and beliefs.

You shouldn’t have said anything about it and surprised her. Sometimes asking for forgiveness is more productive then permission.....
