Alternative uses for Time Estimate field

we.kanes says:
I've started using the time estimate field alternatively for the cost of items I want or need to purchase. So, if something I want costs $40, I enter a time estimate of "40 min". I can then see the total of all things I want or need (granted, I have to do a bit of math in my head, but I see that as a good thing - the total is displayed in "days - hours - minutes" so ((days*1440) + (hours*60) + (minutes))).

This also lets me search for "wants under $10" or "needs over $100" etc...

I'd bet others do the same thing or something similar. Other ideas?

Smart idea. This was touched on here, once: http://www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/ideas/6046/

Not sure if the person to whom I suggested the idea did anything with it.
