My husband has two approaches, the first to justify his purchases of
juvenile cichlids, and the second for increasingly expensive pairs of
apistos - 

1) "This is a great price.  I'll grow them up a little and turn them
around to a fish store.  Then we can get store credit, and we can buy
what you want with it."

2) "As soon as I get them to breed, I can actually start making money on
my hobby."

I'm not gullible enough to believe his rosy forecasts, but he can
usually convince me that it's just true enough...
