Pick a price and stick to it!

Go into the auction already knowing what you'll pay.

I realized that I tended to go nuts on auctions pretty early on and I've subsequently found 1 way to prevent over bidding. I look at the item and decide well in advance what I'm willing to pay. (Note: That's what I'm willing to pay, not what any price guide says it's worth though I may consult the book.) In the heat of the moment I'll sometimes go 1 or 2 dollars over, but not more than that. Yes, I'll moan and groan went it's something that I want really bad but I'll usually remember that set price and stick to it... no matter how much I don't like it at the time. I almost never regret it later whether I won or lost.

Oh, and I'm a college student so you know my collecting budget isn't huge.

It's a nice tip because I often spend all my money on auctions. And then I'm sitting home without any food... I still need to pay for some of my study tasks. But fortunately, I found this source https://phdessay.com/free-essays-on/study-abroad/ with free paper examples, it saved my life. To me, collecting is a way I want to develop, so college study took the backseat.

I can't say I ever favor spending the rent or the grocery money on any hobby, no matter how much I want the thing. As a former TA and a former instructor, I can't say I like your helpful advice either. I wrote my own essays, and I suggest you do the same, or just don't waste money on college - the learning is the goal, not the degree or the grade.

...i believe that Revenant has graduated now....

Funny enough, I've earned 3 degrees / graduated 3 times since this was posted.
