Buy a tractor or 2 with the intent of reselling at a profit- that means just clean it up and get it in good working order, not spend a fortune to restore to factory specs. If your wife sees a little cash coming in, she'll be less worried about the cash going out. I have a friend who has been a Civil War buff and collector since he was a kid. He says his wife used to hate it; worried and fussed about all the money he put in to old pieces of "junk". Until he sold a piece or 2 for a handsome profit. Now he says she encourages him to buy when he finds a bargain (and will make sure he has cash in his pocket when he goes to shows, etc.!). He sells often enough to keep his wife happy, and to have cash handy for the next find. Might work for your wife, too. (Wouldn't hurt if you spent the tractor profit on something useful she's been wanting.) Good luck.
