Re: Got a little crazy on CBID

Well @Just1ce I am luck that I didn't get too far out of hand with my loot but I know that i need to slowly sneak it in the house. and after i finish my cabinet build I will need to start filling it up. hopefully i will get my raise by the time i start filling up.

Re: Got a little crazy on CBID

No guts- No glory!! You've got big balls with that huge order:mrgreen:... my wife is pretty cool about stuff. she doesn't miss much... even if I get home before her and open my packages and put away my cigars and goodies, she will still know I received something... I'm guessing it's because I don't hide the evidence well enough. I'm learning to take out the trash after I unpack my goodies now... I'm ready for an excursion on c-bid today. I cleared out some cigars(gave them away) and made room for new ones. Happy bidding to me:mrgreen:

At first i was just low balling thinking that there was no way that i would be getting these for so cheap... then when the winning bid notifications started coming in i quickly realized that i would be in need of a place to store them so the i put a bid on a couple larger humidors thinking i might get one and now i have 3 on the way. oh well now i will have plenty of room to stock up for a while. the only problem is that i dont have anywhere to put them while i season my new humi's. do you guys think i could just leave what i got in their bags while i season my new Humidors? I also went to my B&M and got a couple water pillows just in case.

Here is what I won so far:

Diesel Unlimited d.6 (toro) - 5-Pack 1/1
The Tuscany Cherry Finish Humidor - 100 Capacity 1
Herf-a-Dor X10 Traveldor - 10-Capacity 1/1
La Herencia Cubana CORE Sampler - Box of 8 Cigars 1/1
Diesel Delirium (Single) 3/3
NEW Diesel Unlimited d.4 - 10 Cigars 1/1
Natural by Drew Estate Egg (Single) 2/2
Berkshire Humidor - 75 Capacity 1/1
Fireside Desktop Humidor - 20 Capacity 1/1
Herf-a-Dor X5 Traveldor - 5-Capacity 1/1
Diesel Six-Pack Sampler Gift Set - Box of 6 + Accessories 1/1
Drew Estate Subculture My Uzi Weighs a Ton 5x60 - Bundle of 10 1/1
Gurkha Beast Toro No. 2 - 5-Pack 1/1
Graycliff 'G2' PGX Toro (Single) 8/8
Herf-a-Dor Limited Camo X5 Traveldor - 5-Capacity 1/1

Now it is time to hope that i beat my wife home when it gets delivered.

Yeah it was not meant to get that big... I won a few of those with $7 bids. And i don't expect to get away with this... My wife is really good at catching me... Like when she left me unattended at a roulette table on our honeymoon to go to sleep. when we woke up she said you know i had a dream last night that you lost all of our money and when she asked how much i spent i simply told her "well baby. I am glad i could make your dreams come true again"

and this isn't including my orders from Thompson and cigars international. I have a total of 101 cigars coming this week. I am so screwed.

Re: Got a little crazy on CBID

We are a lot alike I never tell my wife when I end up going back to the ATM while at the casino...... And I need another 100 count humidor to keep up with you! Seriously, I really have been considering buying another humidor to keep cigars in that I want to age. My current one holds approx- 75-100. I got a little careless with c-bid last month and ended up winning more than I expected.

Re: Got a little crazy on CBID

Hahaha That is how it seems . My wife has found that when i play dumb or reply "Huh" to her questions that she is going to be mad. I feel bad because my wife was very thoughtful when she got me my humidor. but it is just too small for my plans. I am planning on having my 100ct for storage of my daily smoke stash, my 75ct to keep 3 boxes in for special occasions and my 20ct for the infused collection. and that will give me the space i need to work on my cabinet. in the next week i am going to start the process of sealing up the cabinet as it is and next month i will start sourcing the cedar and lining/building shelves.

Re: Got a little crazy on CBID

I just made me a couple bids... Carlos torano exodus gold 1959, 10 pack.... PLus, Indian Tabac Super Fuerte Robusto Natural - Box of 25.. And since c-bid doesn't seem to carry a favorite of mine, I went to Famous-smoke and ordered me 2 5-packs of PDR 1878 cubano especials they had on sale... They had a $24 credit on my account that i didn't know about!!! That was nice!! Looks like 45 more cigars coming my way soon!!! No surprises here, for I ordered cigars I really like. Oh... I can't wait for the PDR 1878's to get here!!!! Been a while since I've had one.... Those PDR 1878's are one fine dam cigar!!!!!

Re: Got a little crazy on CBID

I have been eyeballing some PDR's. I have yet to try them because no one gave me a direct suggestion yet but i will have to give them a try.

I got lucky and the UPS guy beat her by 20 minutes. Enough time to spare to take my empty box to the dumpster outside. I live another day! :banana:

Re: Got a little crazy on CBID

I went through the same thing a few months ago when I discovered the site. Suddenly I was in need of a new place for storage. Lucky for me my wife doesn't really care and I can control myself. Except with Free Fall auctions. Did someone say Free Fall??
