Is it okay to take breaks from a hobby? Especially if it’s an expensive hobby. ?

I have a lifelong hobby of collecting original historical militaria, I’m now at a time where my car has high mileage and instead of spending tons on my hobby, I’m focused on saving for a new car or big car repairs. Have other people taken similar breaks from their hobbies?

    Of course you can take a break from a hobby. It doesn't have to be a lifelong commitment. Hobbies come and go, or get shelved for awhile when financial circumstances change.

    Take time to go through your collection. Weed out a few things. Sell them. Rearrange the displays you have for them.  Make new displays. Do any maintenance  needed.  Enjoy what you have collected 

    Hobbies ebb and flow. You always can use a break from them.

    Yes for example I used to spend hours sorting coins to fit them into my coin books. I took a break from it because I decided it was not worth hours of my time to look for pre 1982 cents. Maybe some day I won't be as uptight and busy and will have the desire to return to my hobby. Also what kind of car are you looking into?
