Have you cut back?

With cigar prices rising, I am finding myself smoking less. Iíd switch completely to pipes if it were not for one major issue - I donít enjoy pipes.

Thatís not completely true. Pipes are okay, but I enjoy cigars so much more.

What are you guys doing to save money?

Good question, Rob. I've been looking for inexpensive bundles to buy. But, I haven't found something I like well enough. That, and I'm dragging my feet in looking very hard.

For the past couple of years, I have been using the devil site to stock up. Even now I am able to find my two favorites there for FAR less than I could at a retail shop so I, personally, have not cut back at all.

I honestly haven't noticed there having been any increase in nc prices from the places online I order from every month, so if its happened, its been pretty small and doesn't effect what I get

It's probably 18 months since I ordered anything. Not to be snobbish, but all things considered, I'd order a bunch of Ave Maria. Or just about anything in the AJF line. Estello Padron was a master of oscuro wrappers, but AJF is staking a really memorable claim. May he rest in peace.
