Money Matters: March 2016


I’ve seen other bloggers, like Berls at Fantasy is More Fun and Felicia at The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog, with book budget posts. It made me curious how much I’m spending on books each year. I have a rough idea, because I have an entertainment budget, but I’d like to get more detailed. I’m not going to try to stick to a set goal the way Berls and Felicia do, but it might end up making me think twice about buying a book if I know I have to be accountable for it here. Or maybe not!

I’ll be posting an update of the previous month’s spending on the second Saturday of each month.
