Only tip I got is to agonize over the purchase. "Gawd I hate to spend the money." "Screw'em, ain't no way I'll own one at that price" "I'll look it up on the web and see if maybe I can make one"
This goes on for about 2 or 3 days and eventually I get the "Honey, I know you really need one, just go pick one up and be done with it" NOW THE HARD PART Just got to show some hesitation. It's crucial. "Ah hell, let me think on it, the prices are just obscene" Two days letter, with a defeated look and tears standing in the corners of your eyes, you reluctantly admit you have no other choice and leave the house to get one.
This approach makes them feel they are doing something for you that you enjoy and women like that. Part of that nurturing thing. Think of the process as foreplay for a purchase not unlike that which takes place in the bedroom
Now if your idea of foreplay is brushing the Beer Nuts off your T-shirt as you holler down the hallway, "Honey, you undressed yet? You ready for me?" then this won't likely work for you as patience ain't one of your long traits.

Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.
It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.
