So far: $0.00

I think we should make this a sticky topic just in case...

I'm not going to update every time I buy something, but so far I haven't bought anything SW related - the last items were some animated clone wars figs New Years Eve, so I beat the gun on that one.

However, I have dropped $41.98 on DVDs, $20.19 on comics and $6.50 to go see The Last Samurai.
Common sense isn't so common

My new total:
$153.63
Added new Muppets purchases, as well as the Tatooine wave and two carded figures. I'm doing well on toys, but books, comics/magazines, and DVDs are on the upswing. Uh oh.



Question: Should we edit our posts, or just make a new post when we update?

I think it would be best to edit your post & add to it or this thread will become very large.  :o
Maybe at the end on the year, we can stitch the posts together to be seen at the end of this thread.

EN.IGIGI Vator has a nice example above to keep track.

Now say you bought something last year for trading, ended up not trading it and took advantage of the Christmas tradition of returning without receipts.  If you use that gift card to buy stuff, should it be included in the total, even though you are technically spending last year's money? :-*

Secondary question:  If you buy something, say a lot of toys on ebay and sell a portion thereof, are you allowed to deduct that amount from the total?

Nice dump o cash there :o

I'm using the semi-standard issue format now, though I modified it to be by date as well, rather than item number.  I'll have blank spaces, but probably not nearly so many as I expect.  

Anyone got a Lego shuttle?
