I finally had the balls to total up my year, and unfortunately my overall spending is up this year - $4923.98.  That was after selling a small number of extras ($566 worth), but at least it was able to keep me under $5000.

2007 - $2682.12.  (spending $5067.63, but sold $2385.52; numbers don't exactly add up because of eBay fees, etc)
2006 - $7960.96
