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.

If you're paying B&M prices then, well, you're already paying top dollar.

True , but , the place I go is unlike any other cigar store in the country. That isn't me saying that , that is all the cigar reps who come in. Many of them who stop by , it isn't even their area , they just stop to be there ...

Hell , even the owners of cigar companies stop by once a year just to hang out ... that is probably normal in big cities , we are a town of 45k... of which 99.9% don't buy cigars ...
