Look at the price if you buy all three of the ones "frequently bought together". They could probably get this group to turn those numbers upside down and still shell out.

I don't have a car. 

Where I draw the line is iPhone cases, stickers, keychains, towels, oven mits, coasters, etc.  These types of things are totally superfluous and obviously a waste of money.  I do own a mug (probably won't buy any more, although they are tempting).  I do buy magazines (usually the ones that have mulltiple interviews, essays and pictures in them), DVDs, the occasional toy or game, shirts (although I have enough shirts until these wear out--I think I have about 5), books, cd's and vinyl.  I also love box sets.  Also have a hoodie and some buttons (badges).  Oh, and I also have a 1964 Beatles zipper bag for pens and pencils.

I also group my Yoko stuff with The Beatles.

I have almost everything except the shirts and the vinyl on a Beatles book case (five shelves) which is almost filled up.  There is a bit of Elvis on the bottom shelf.  I was going to photograph it but I think you can only post photos with URLs?

I also wear glasses that look almost exactly like these...Mine are darker and the bridge over the nose is more curved (and mine are not "John Lennon" collection glasses, they are made by Seraphin).  I almost went for the wire frame Granny glasses but I wanted something different.

You could get the car window stickers and sneak them onto the windows of your commuter train. You'd have so many people smiling.

Nice glasses.

My bills currently keep me from wasting much money, but a good deal of my meager spending cash has gone to Beatles stuff. Mostly getting the albums again, and that copy of Yellow Submarine I found on DVD recently. I tend to stay away from other merchandise, but people inevitably get me that stuff as gifts. You won't hear me complaining. a-hard-days-night-john-1

I have a shirt, a few posters, some books, and lots of other random [practically useless] stuff I've gotten as gifts. I also have a few vinyl albums, including Magical Mystery Tour and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. However, I can restrain myself. I don't feel the need to buy every Beatley thing I see. If I did that, I'd probably have more than 20 shirts and 30 posters.

^ Wow... that's just um... I can't think of a word to describe it... I just can't imagine that in my bedroom...

Music and books are what I usually stick to when it comes to The Fab Four stuff, although I did get The Beatles Rock Band set when it came out 9/9/09. My friend got me the four action figures of the Yellow Submarine set back in the late 90's as a birthday gift. And maybe two t-shirts, I bought at Hot Topic long time ago.

However, if there is any Beatle related purchase in the foreseeable future, it would be the Ludwig Fab 4 Classic Maple drumset in the Black Oyster Pearl finish of course. Then get a Beatles bass drum head to put on it. Only thing holding me back on that is room. Got two sets (one Ludwig Vistalite, ala Bonham, and Roland e-drums) already taking up space.

One part of this awesome display of Beatles love was given to me, and I purchased the other two to go with it.

I can't remember if I mentioned it before, but I bought these shoes for Ted's third birthday (in May). He's going to *love* them.

From the Vans website, which I linked to. They've got loads of different Beatles designs, most of them horrible. Good for toddlers though.
