While I’ve always been pretty responsible when it comes to money — mainly because I’ve never had a ton available to blow on frivolous things — I know there is one area where I could blow through a lot of cash fast if I ever become independently wealthy. I’m talking about movie/TV props. They inherently carry a story with them, they bring you a little closer to the shows and movies you love, and they look great up on a mantle or in a display case. But if I am ever going to dive into the prop world head first, I’m gonna have to negotiate one hell of a raise.
