If you spent any portion of that GC on toys, then yes I would count it.  I consider everything I buy part of the challenge, no matter how I pay for - cash, credit card, gift card, etc.

Let's see...

January = $53.91

Stuff I bought:
30AC White TIE Fighter (1 opener)
Target Exclusive Ambush on Ilum Battle Pack (1 opener)
Target Exclusive Betrayal on Felucia Battle Pack (1 opener)
Internet Exclusive Republic Commando Delta Squad Box Set (1 opener)
Previews Exclusive Death Star Briefing Box Set (1 opener)


Once again, I managed to offset the cost of the loot I bought by selling some extra stuff off my 'for sale" list.  Man, it feels good to start the year off with a month well under $100 (unlike last year - thanks to Kubricks, Jan06 was $350+).    :)

Next month will be quite a bit higher I'm sure as Wave 9 and the Wal-Mart wave start to surface around here...  :-\

January added up more than I thought/hoped it would, especially with not finding any SW figures this month (aside from BPs).  Darn those "other" lines.

January
TSC Darth Vader's Sith Starfighter
30AC Target Exclusive Ambush on Ilum BP
2 Hasbro Marvel Legends Figures
1 DC Superheroes Figure

Total for January=Approx. $75.00

Just a general question as I haven't done this before and I couldn't find this 'rule' in the previous challenges.  Are the novels (Allegiance, Path to Destruction) and coffee table books (SW Chronicles, etc)exempt from this?  I know that I can't count comics and tpb's, but I just want to make sure I don't miss anything.  Thanks.

My understanding is that the rule has always been that you can count whatever you want to count.

As for my monthly total:

January:
Family Guy Volume 4
TSC Imperial R5 Droid
Nirvana CD
Rise Against CD

Total: Approx. $50

That pretty much sums it up.  Include whatever you feel belongs in your tally.

Sounds good, thanks for the input.  That brings me up to $245 for the year.  I had no idea I could spend that much in such a short time.

$245? 

That's just one night on ebay for me after I've been out drinking.

Don't forget your Minnesota shuttle  ;)  Of course, I offset that for you personally by buying a bunch of your kubricks (see my own tally on page 1)
