How long was it for you?

How long did it take you before you started buying boxes instead of always buying singles. I look at the money I spend on singles, and it adds up very quickly. Every time I do it, I want to smack myself because I should be putting it away for a box, instead of high priced singles.

It took awhile because I never had a humi large enough to buy boxes. Now that I do it's very hard to buy singles. Though deciding what to smoke is always very challenging.

I've got a small 100 ct, but I have countless coolers from the college days that could easily be converted to coolerdors. Like this past weekend, I spent 23 dollars on 2 singles....the box of 20 is 150 :hn When you think about it that way it kind of makes you sick lol

I started buying boxes when I got my cabinet. Funny thing is, I thought I'd never go through a box, but they disappear faster then I expected.

lol, I would probably buy boxes and then "try" to store them to age...but I doubt that happens

I started buying singles at my B&M, them I went out and bought a 200 count humi about two months later. I then ordered 2 boxes of PAM's, a box Ashton Aged Maduros, and a box of Partagas Black Maximos that week. I filled the humii within a few weeks and then I had to get another 200 count, and then a cooler, and all of this before I discovered CS or C-Bid. I went flying down the slope verry quickly and never looked back.

If you find something you like. Buy a box and sell 5'ers to offset the cost of the box.

In October it'll be 2 years of smokin' cigars for me and I've still never bought a box. Never even made a purchase online.

Maybe one of these days!!

I think I bought my first box about 6 months after I got into premium cigars. I buy a lot more boxes than singles now. About the only singles I buy are when I stop by a B&M when I'm away from home.

After I started regulalry buying cigars, probably about 8 months or so. I've still only made a few box purchases.

About 2-3 months... I had to find something I liked enough to buy that many... of course I did... then I went on an Anejo box spree... :D

I started smoking in January/February and I just purchased my first box about a week ago....so 6-7 months. Before that I did a lot of samplers and singles to find out what I like. It only took one CAO black to convince me to make that my first box.
