Planning ahead ...

Pre-ordering stuff from Japan is hard. On top of whatever shipping charges, there's also the fact that you usually have to do it months ahead of the actual release dates so the importers can get the orders right.

This leads to two problems for me: (1) the lack of instant gratification leads me to buy more in the meanwhile, resulting in an endless stream of packages which (2) leads to a lack of space issue. So all around my room, I have random stacks of boxes of things I purchased through various outlets, waiting for me to find space so I can unpack and display them. I don't think I'm hardcore enough to invest in walls of glass cabinets like I've seen on other hobbyist blogs though.

This is somewhat analogous to the problem I have with stacks of DVDs and video games lying around, but the limiting factor there is available time.
