Manga total: £85.88
Merch total: £11.53
Manhwa total: £1.08
Kickstarter total: £30.23

July's expenses:

Manga: £21.47
Anime: £61.91
Other: £8.99

July Total: £92.37
YTD Total: £955.03

Well down on last year and I'm very please to see the YTD figure under £1,000.00 though my collection isn't too pleased about this Laughing

I keep telling myself to be frugal, but he won't listen. This month looks slightly worse than it is due to CDJapan's waiting to charge me until the first for Sakura Trick.

Anime: $267.80
Other: $50.21

July Total: $318.01
July YOY: -$72.60


YTD Total: $1,175.02
YTD YOY: -$926.83

Only two nonanime purchases this month, despite anticipating a few manga releases. Not quite sure how I should factor in my refund for Senran Funisfulloflies when I get it; not sure if I should leave the charge in my YTD total, or if I should subtract it from the August total.

But at least I've kept to my goal of substantially reducing my spending this year!

August is nearly over and I'm not expecting anything else coming my way this month. So let's total up my spending this month:

Gatchaman Crowds- $35.99
Watamote- $39.48
Tamako Market- $39.48
A Certain Scientific Railgun S (both sets)- $71.98
Blood Lad- $32.48
Cat's Eye Season 1 set- $44.99
Hal- $21.48
Cybersix- $28.49

August 2014 Total: $314.47
YTD Total: $2358.52
Total Around This Time Last Year: $2320.42

About on par with my spending from last year at this time. See what the next few months will cost me since my summer pre-order binge is done and I don't have as much I've got on pre-order.

I got my Senran Kagura refund of $37.79; I've decided to just punch it into the YTD total here, despite being in my 'checkbook' for the month, which turned out to be fairly light... in terms of things:

Anime: $69.26
Manga: $33.13
Love Gems: $58.61

August 2014 Total: $161
August YOY: -$41.83

Got a refund of $37.79 on Senran Kagura(and paid for postage with stamps I'd boughten months ago), so:

2014 YTD total: $1,298.23
YTD YOY= -$1,006.45

Right now I'm set to get just under $1700 worth of purchases by the end of the year, but we'll just have to see how badly I can blow that out of the water.

October wasn't a very scary month, spending-wise:

$70.72 Cdn.

All of that was for my Funi Elite Video sub. $8.87 for the month of October and $61.85 for my new annual membership that starts tomorrow.

Comes November, comes December
Comes a splurge to remember!
