I spend my leaf tickets mainly on extending my pocket space and clearing out some maps depending what it is. I also sometimes use them to buy the fortune cookies but I don't do this all the time as they are expencive.

I usually spend my leaf tickets on either buying fortune cookies or getting new terrain options. But it does take a while to save up for the terrain so that's kind of annoying.

My top three for LT are:

1. fortune cookies
2. renting the golden rod for fishing events
3. crafting LT-only event items or special characters

4. Honorable mention: my daughter randomly uses them for fortune cookies or getting a suggestion from Lottie on the HHD area.

Haha. That's funny because all of those are (and a few others) are things I always tell new players to the game who ask me for advice not to spend LTs on.



But as long as you have the money, aren't spending your rent, schooling, car payment, utilities away (this may sound crazy but I have seen this before sadly) and are addicted to the game I say go for it.

I would occasionally buy a bundle here or there when the LTs were at sale pricing and when they came with a bonus item(s) of some kind (usually nets or FF) when (and only when) there was a good deal going on. My birthday was in March and (as usual because I let it be heard from the mountain tops my love for GCs!) I got several iTunes and Amazon GCs (which I used to buy more iTunes cards) and have been spending all of it on LTs. I still only buy them when they go on sale so after buying quite a few larger bundles last event and all the latest $.99 bundles. I have around $10-$20 dollars left that will eventually become LTs. Once I cash those in (even without including the bonus LTs) they'll net me around 600 LTs and if I add those to my current stash I'll peak at around 3K LTs. That will have to last me until the game ends so I am only buying 'loves' and not simply 'would likes'. Luckily, I am not a fan of DJ KK (How many variations of KK do we need?! Please Nintendo...give me Kappi'n already!) or this red and black dance theme (my silly cabin 'club' is waaaaay better haha), so it's easy to avoid spending for me as of right now which is nice.

Partially OT, so feel free to skip ahead. Heh. In addition to me playing a tad less and hating the 'lets re-color everything and say it's new because we're lazy' trend' I have no desire to contribute any more of my money to the creators at this point. Also factoring in is since AC has been announced for the Switch, I am now saving about 50-75% of my 'leisure funds' each week to purchase the console and the game. I will in fact swoon if they come out with a bundle. I thought long and hard about the 3DS+ AC bundle (I had the original 3DS (gave to mom lol) and a physical copy of the game already as I had to wait because I refused to pay a penny more than retail value). Used bundles were selling for $500+ on Amazon and eBay at the time. I love AC and all, but I refuse to get, in my thoughts, scammed. Thus, I don't do business with scalpers. But long story short, I simply lucked out and got bundle at retail because of a cancellation 2-3 weeks after the launch date and I still do not regret shelling out the extra cash for it. It's so darn cute!

However, I went out and bought the WiiU early on because I knew a new AC would just have to come out on the U right? Ugh. I literally only enjoyed Lego City and the new Wii Party on it. In fact, if I hadn't transferred all my data IE purchased games from the Wii, that sucker would be long gone by now.

So I will NOT buy my console until the very last moment...juuuuust in case. When you're going to basically pay $300 dollars just to play one game, that game better be coming out when and how they say it will.

+-----+


So as I said above, I am not buying anymore LTs and will rely on my hoard and freebies. As such, I am super picky these days when it comes to spending so I only buy things that are LOVES, and that I will use tons. So, I spend them on terrains, NEW NPCs (I love KK but don’t need like 4 versions of him), LE clothing and LE furniture love that I know I will wear/use frequently, and on packs of cookies where I love almost every item in them so I am never disappointed and love every item I might get. Oh, and also any walls and floors that, again, I know I can use very often. I have become so stingy that I actually am happy when a new cookie or crafting piece comes out and I hate it.

Almost nothing.

Right now I'm siting on 1,732 leaf tickets. I've spent some of mine on things, such as right before an event ends if I want to get something, but for the most part I haven't really seen a need to spend them on anything.

hahaha I know where you're going with that.
But in all seriousness, I've maxed out the more important things, like market boxes and crafting tables when I had the chance, back when I first started playing. Inventory space isn't a concern with proper management.

Hence all the other stuff now.

I only said that because I have to take care of important expenses like ASAP. Whoops. ^^;
Having said that, I tend to buy LTs when there are packs on sale - basically buy leaf tickets and get extra stuff with my purchase. I get more of my money's worth, and progress towards the collectathons going on (gardening isn't my forte anymore) without too many issues.

In case anyone has my phone and tries to buy LTs, they won't be able to, as I do not save my password onto my Play store account, and I've installed a security app that has me type in a 4-digit PIN before going to the Play store, which is before the password confirmation screen.

It doesn't help curb my spending much, but it prevents anything going hayware without my knowledge or consent. Believe me, I've read many a horror story about raking up huge bills and I've been determined to ensure this doesn't happen to me. Preventation is better than cure.

I’ve used my Leaf tickets on various things. Shovelstrike Quarry (when needed), some video game clothes and furniture (depends), hoppers fortune cookie (would’ve bought more this time since I’m missing a few of the furniture, but saving my Leaf tickets for other things), sometimes fishing tournament, Market Boxes, Inventory (don’t need to upgrade any further at the moment), and sometimes to finish the treasure maps only when there’s snacks in them.

Majority was used during the Mario fishing tournament. Luckily I maxed out the crafting tables long ago. I’ll get to the Market Boxes soon but that’s not needed for me at the moment.

I used some as well for gardening when needed, but thankfully I don’t really have to anymore since my friends usually spam insects in my garden every so often.

Now when I said for the shovelstrike, it’s pretty much for the gyroid scavenger hunt when needed. That was pretty much it.

I always rent the gold rod on fishing events, so most my Leaf tickets go there.

All in all, I’ve spent a decent amount of money on Leaf Tickets. Still got some left over.

Really? I am shocked you have to use LTs for the quarry. You need to get yourself some international friends! I am almost always on at 11pm and ask for entry requests of 10 people only right away. I would say I get 5 within 10 minutes or so 95% of the time. When I check in the next morning I usually have at least 9/10. And if it's an 'emergency' I send the call out to my whole FL and get the same results.

It's not my place to tell you how to spend your money (or LT stash if you just save free LTs) of course. I just feel bad you're needing to use LTs for that. Especially since it's waaaay overpriced; no matter what it's offering IMO. That's five away from a cookie!



+-----+

But this thread has been interesting. I wish I could take back using my LTs for extra MB spaces, spending so much trying to get that dang neon tree (that I never got btw - meanwhile I get the memory items from pretty much every set I really dislike and will never use from a single 5K bell cookie), but other than those instances I don't feel upset with any of my purchases. IMO the extra crafting space is mandatory...in fact I am waiting for a fourth slot to open. And expanding my inventory was a wonderful decision for my style of playing. I love storing 20+ of each critter so if I have a busy day (or I am just not that in to playing the game that day) I don't have to worry about replenishing even if I fulfill requests for like 4 cycles per day.

Oh, I actually also feel like I wasted some LTs in the beginning. I went in to the game blind (on purpose) and used some for quarry requests. Back then LTs were SO easy to get that 20 was chump change. But I'd rather I had those 100 or so now instead of course.

But my rule has definitely changed after my FC disaster where I spent SO much and walked away without the item I was seeking. Now if there is any doubt in my mind that if I purchase 'X' item I will wish I saved it for future 'Y' item. It's working out really well. Before I would have bought the pigtail goth wig just because it's a new hairstyle. But now I have decided I will wait until the event if ending to make my decision. I am not too into the goth clothing being offered, and there is little else in my wardrobe that has red in it so it might not get worn too much. There is less instant gratification for sure, but it makes me feel better about my spending habits later when I have tons of 'would be spent' tickets I can use for new items I am dying for.

I do have friends that help me in shovelstrike but the thing is that sometimes I get on too late when the shovelstrike is close to changing or when my shovelstrike is maxed when I don’t realize it, I’m off the app. Gotta keep watch on those things. I only use it when I desperately need to though.

I rarely use leaf Tickets, and when I do it is never to speed up things or stuff like that because I can wait. I try to beas  conservative as possible so that I have enough whenever I see something that I really want. The fortune cookies are a rare purchase due to the randomness factor.

I did spend lt on shovelstrike quarry once.

I cannot recall the last time I have bought Fortune Cookies.  And really haven't bought backgrounds since my Halloween & X-mas ones last year.  Currently it is mainly for the Golden Rod.  I was doing good on space with the update that boosted us up, but have purchased some space with the Golden Fish & Bugs I added to my portable museum.  

The Shovel Quarry I do like how they do the friends helping and that is pretty good for me once a day.

I used to spend LT on Gulliver's rewards and nonsense during events, but I realized that you can get LT pretty easily by giving snacks and leveling up, so I am saving them for big items like the landscapes and cookies.

Oh yes, and map clearing for new villagers, as well as missing resources sometimes.
