  1. Good job!

    I tried the library, been holding this book for over a month now. My overdue fees will be a killer! Will stick to my own shit for now. Eep!

  2. Great job. I keep saying I’m going to do this, but I haven’t. I know I haven’t spent much. My audible account is paused for the past three months and I still have credits. Great job staying under budget.

    • Next year I am giving myself $150 limit (half of this year) –that doesn’t count audible because I get that as a Christmas/Birthday gift so I will have 24 credits.

  3. I think I spend your year total last month … I am so proud of you, I really don’t understand how you can resist all those shiny new books. But as I just had to buy a new car, I will have to squeeze my book budget firmly.
