Robbed from rllmuk, idea is to keep a monthly track of what you fork out to keep your gaming habit satiated. Come December we then all despair at our totals. UNGGGHARGH.gif

My budget at the moment entirely consists of collecting gaming paraphenalia to do with SFIII or at the least very tenuously linked to SFIII. January has been a good start collection wise and a bad start wise :V

January
=========================

1. Kubrick Figure - Chun Li from Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike 10.50
2. Capcom Kinu Nishimura Street Fighter III Effie Figure 5
3. Bandai Street Fighter III Carddass - 6 PRISM Card 15.50
4. Street Fighter III Comic #20 JADE 10.40
5. Street Fighter III Comic Anthology CAPCOM Manga Book 14.60
6. Tatsunoko vs Capcom [NTSC-J] Wii 10

=========================
Running Total - 66.00
=========================

Are we allowed to put down our planned expenditures or is this just what we have spent?

Ahh this is a pretty good idea. Keep a tabs on things. Bought some DLC, which I dont love to do, but as I've been stuck in with bad weather I've been pretty bored.

There's no way in hell I'm going anywhere near this idea. I already know that I spend far more than I can afford on games, I'm not going to depress myself by listing that expenditure as I go.

What would Martin Lewis say Randy?



"Awooooooooga! ding ding ding! Money in. Money out. Maths. Squibble."

Exactly Randy, you can't argue with sage financial advice like that. Plus, it's a 'List Thread' Everyone loves a 'List Thread' wub.gif
