Must... Splurge...

by too_kule

Untitled Document NEOPIAN BAZAAR - I've never really been much of a shop-a-holic, but I've really never had this much extra money to spend. I mean, it's just staring at me from my bank account, taunting me to withdraw a few thousand and spend them... but the more I try to control my craving, the harder it becomes. Finally, it's time to give up. What am I saving those Neopoints for anyway? I withdraw a few hundred thousand and see what it can buy me...

Seem familiar? If you have a whole ton of Neopoints to spend that you really have no plans for, give in. In this article, I intend to outline some good outlets of these cravings.

Neopet Makeover - If you have tons of Neopoints that aren't going anywhere, spend them on changing your Neopet. Your average blue Usul can be made rainbow with a use of a paint brush! But who says stop there? Why does your Neopet have to stay an Usul anyway? Buy a morphing potion! You could buy a really expensive morphing potion, like for a Krawk or a Draik... if you can afford it. Or you could buy a Draik egg or a Krawk petpet and get a brand new, rare Neopet. The possibilities are endless!

Trophy - Is there a certain trophy you're just itching to get? Then get it! Perhaps you could read it lots of books and feed it lots of gourmet food to get the Neopian Book Award or a Gourmet Club card! You could also invest your NP in games that don't really payoff well (such as Gormball) but you can still get a trophy from them. Do some Illusen or Jhudora quests, not for the prizes but for the trophy.

Gallery - With the new Gallery Spotlight, the idea of a gallery has entered a lot more minds lately. Buy as many items that are pink and put them all in a gallery! It's not only for a Gallery Spotlight, but just for the sake of having a gallery. Show off your riches with those items!

Battledome - There are tons of stuff you can do here. You could choose to buy some codestones or dubloons to raise your Neopet. Perhaps if the slow approach isn't your thing, the speed it up with a super negg or two. You could also buy some really expensive Battledome equipment. Maybe a trip to the Hidden Tower is needed? You could also stock up on Faeries and raise your Neopet's abilities. There are some really good ones out there, you just have to be able to afford them.

NeoHome - Nothing says 'I have NP to spare' like a well-furnished NeoHome Not only could you choose to build one in a more expensive place like Faerieland, you could have Royal Wallpaper, golden rooms and the Furry Sofa to match.

Cards/Stamps - I'm sure your empty stamp album your your dusty NeoDeck are just screaming to be added on to. With the hundreds of collectable card and Neopet stamps around, I'm sure you could have a great collection in no time. Try a theme, for instance only Tyrannian-related cards or green stamps.

Petpets - I did this recently. Three petpets that were owned by three of my Neopets (a Christmas Doglefox, a Snowbunny and a Tanizard) were getting sort of boring. I replaced them with a red Babaa, a white Pinceron and a yellow Catamara. I kept the white Donksaur though, I've grown quite attached to it. You don't even have to replace your petpets if you've grown attached to them, just paint them. If a petpet you own isn't available to be painted, just be patient. They add tons of petpet colour options each week.

Lab Ray - Using the Lab Ray once a day to zap your Neopet is really neat. Just buy nine different Secret Laboratory map pieces and you have it. The Lab Ray can alter your Neopet's stats, colour, species or gender. You can't be guaranteed it will work out well, but it's worth the NP I think. Of course, I bought it all for about 10,000 NP ages ago. Those were the days...

Neopoints - Have you ever heard the saying "It takes money to make money?" This is what I mean. Spend some NP on the Lottery, scratchcards, Keno and some other risky games like that. You could end up getting lucky.

So who says you need to be a good little boy or girl and save up the NP? Be sure to limit how much you spend, you don't want to lose ALL of your Neopoints, especially in that last one. And if you don't even want to spend anything, go right ahead. It's your choice where your Neopoints go, not mine. This is too_kule, signing off from the Bazaar. Spend your NP wisely! Over and out.

Note: I apologize if you're poor and can hardly make ends meet. This article really isn't for you I guess. Remember, don't beg or scam. Earn NP through games and quests and stuff like that.
