Cutting the Budget ~ An Update for July (2014)

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Hosted by Shari over at the Delighted Reader. This feature is a great way to keep track on that book spending limit we always set ourselves up on, but never seem to follow.
(*taxes are included in book prices)

July was a slow month in regards to book buying for me...meaning I didn't do much buying. In total, I picked up seven books...2 were free,  4 were .99 cents ($1.06 included taxes) and 1 I paid full price for which was totally worth it. I have been adding many books to my wishlist which to date, I have a total of 95 books but I'm sure that will grow because as I shave off more and more of my spending...I'm finding out that my wishlist is becoming a bit out of control, lols. And that is okay because I can catch items on sale or purchase the book when I really want to read it. And I found another FB group to be a part of and the books these chicks are mentioning are going to make my wishlist get blown out of the water...

Below are the books that I purchased in July.

Jezebel by KoKo Brown ~ $1.06
The Wolf Within by Cythia Eden ~ $0.00
Loving Gianni by Nikki Waters ~ $1.07
Scandalous Heroes Box Set ~ $1.06
Taken by KoKo Brown ~ .$3.20
The Mara Song by M.O. Kenyan ~ $0.00
Take Me A Romance Box Set (NA) ~ .$1.06

So all and all not bad I think. I'll update August according next week. Happy Sunday Ya'll. 



  1. You are rocking the budget, Sharonda! I went over by $1 in July, but so far August is looking good with $20 left plus a $10 GC. I want two new release books badly so I know I'll be purchasing sooner than later.

    This is my first visit to your new site. Snazzy!

  2. Doing awesome Sharonda! Eden is on my tbr list. One day I'll get to her :)

  3. Great job with the cutting the budget. This is something I've been thinking about attempting soon.

  4. Hey Sophia! I'm so frigging proud of myself with this budget. I have been thinking about just buying a gift card every month..that would.probably help more :)

    Shot, you did awesome..just a $1, that ain't bad at all. I think August is going to be my downfall though. ..lols.

  5. Thanks Anna! I have a couple more of hers on my Tbr list myself. One of these days, I'll get to read another one

  6. Hi Melanie

    It really is an awesome way to keep track of your book buying spending.

    Thanks for stopping by :)

  7. I'd be too afraid to post my monthly book budget because then I would know for sure how much I actually spend on my addiction, and I'd probably feel guilty. LOL You did good in July though, hopefully August is even better!
