So I figured I ought to count up how much I spent on anime merchandise and such. Unfortunately, seeing as I never really thought of doing so until now, I never really kept track of when I bought the stuff. So when I say, “Accounting for 2007”, what I really meant was, “Accounting for everything until the end of 2007″. I figure as a new year’s resolution, I’ll keep better track of purchases and such for the years to come, though it would be rather difficult seeing as I’m not exactly proficient in the use of MS Excel (you may laugh at me now). I blame my school.
Anyway, have some charts!
As one can see, manga is where most of the money went, with figures taking the second-highest amount. This can be attributed to my obsession with manga earlier this year, with figures taking center stage soon after. Not surprisingly, a lot of money was spent on magazines, thanks to stupid retailers and their price increases on Newtype magazines, which I have already stopped collecting, thanks to my other, more worthwhile hobbies.
I’m probably going to want to cut back on expenses next year, as I fully intend to save up for a DSLR, seeing as I want to add photography to my currently empty list of skills.
Oh, and if anyone’s interested, I’ve compiled a list of what I spent my money on.
