My Name's Lil Brother... And I Have a Problem

The other day I bought an Arceus plushie from Target on a whim. The sheer awesomeness of Arceus in plush form was just too much to pass up, and it didn't take too big a chunk out of my wallet. Since then, I've begun to enter this annoying phase of desiring to become an official Pokémon collector. ...wait, let me rephrase that.
For most of my fandomship, I've prided myself on primarily only buying things I could actually use: DVDs, video games, manga, etc. This is why I quit the TCG: I was only displaying the cards in an organized binder, and never actually learned how to play the game to any proficient degree. Yet now, because of that one little indulgence, I've become overcome with the irresistible urge to buy display-intended merch: plushes, figures, the works. There's only one problem.
This shit's expensive!
I'm a dirt poor high school student, heading to be a dirt poor, starving college student in a few months. I can't be spending money left and right on such a pursuit! But... but... Mystery Dungeon plushs! Unown plushs and figures! Pokémon-themed DS styluses! A complete TCG Next Quest set! A shrine to the Regis! Croagunk boxers! I need these things and more if I am ever to become content with life! ;_; Whatever shall I doooo? And no, before you ask, exploring Pokemon Collectors does not help alleviate the pain of my not having all this cool stuff.
This is why I don't experiment with drugs. >.>
Also, I've deduced I'm officially bored with the main series games. I've had Platinum since its release, and I still haven't even reached the third gym. I bought HeartGold, and haven't made it to Azelea yet. Feel like it's such a waste of my money if I'm not going to actually dedicate the necessary time. I'm such a disappointment of a Pokémon fanboy. ;P
(And no, this is not really some deep-rooted addiction I'm struggling with... I'm just wishing at the moment that I could come into millions of dollars of spending money somehow.)
