    Sure, if your time is worthless. When I can offer more value to my clients with less effort and in less time, that's worth an awful lot more than 300 measly dollars. Especially so on a $50k+ project... it's not unusual to spend 10 times that amount just in sourcing photo assets. Hell, I'll gladly pay a few hundred dollars out of pocket not to have to use Wordpress ever again.

    Also, who wouldn't want great tools? You're a maker, aren't you? In another life I was a professional chef and was always on the lookout for the best tools to do my job. Not all tools are created equal: some are created with more care, last longer, have sharper edges, more comfortable handles, etc. I spent a small fortune on my kitchen tools because I enjoyed my craft that much more using them. How is this any different?
