Its only bad if you decide to attempt to buy everything all at once.
The trouble is forcing yourself to space everything out. If your paitent enough and have the time to bargain hunt its not terribly expensive at all. If you are impaitent and have to have everything right away you will end up paying more, and of course there is always crazy impusle buys as well...you know thats going to be a problem when you have 3 or 4 pairs of binoculars depending on what mood you are in.
