Cutting the Budget - January so Far...

Hi Salacious Readers!

Hosted by Shari over at Delighted Reader. I'm so happy that she decided to share this. It's a great way to keep track on that book spending limit we seem to set ourselves up on, but never seem to follow...

Okay...since I just stared, I'm going to start from the beginning of January until now. I at first gave myself a $20 budget for the month on my book purchases and before you say anything, I figured since I buy eBooks a know? Anyways, T.H.A.T did not work out AT ALL (not quite sure what I was thinking...). So, I decided to up it to $35. Let's see how I did so far.

*All books brought through BN, Amazon & ARe.

I still cut it, very close. So for the rest of the month, I'll just add to my wishlishes. What I'm also learning is that .99 cents doesn't EXACTLY mean that price. Amazon is approximately $1.06 more in taxes than BN for me. AllRomanceebooks is the only site that I was charged exactly as the price was listed. And what else I've I learned...One-clicking via Amazon can get to be a seriously bad habit.
