What impulse "buys" are you susceptible to?
Money dissappers quickly at the checkout counter...its only $1,00! I buy things like gum, coffee...new pens...what gets you?
I'm a sucker for candy bars haha. Lately, I've been on a Snickers or Hershey's Cookies n' Cream craze. If I see them in line, I can't help but buy them.

Railway locomotives, wagons and other rolling stock. I buy kits and modify ready-to-run. As long as they're relevant to the North East of England, or might have been seen in the region, they're worth buying.
I might buy a wagon or other railway vehicle at an exhibition - second-hand or unused - buy an underframe kit and 'marry' the two, add scale couplings and maybe change the wheels (or paint them if they're too shiny), numbers and letters might be changed according to year of build etc. Keeps the brain and fingers active.
