Title: How Much Do You Spend on Entertainment?
Post by: meowchi on July 11, 2008, 10:02:04 PM
What's your average monthly expenditure for entertainment? Dining out, concerts, movies, weekend trips...etc? Do you budget for it, or just wing it?

As a poor uni student; I am frugal, so my entertainment amount is pretty nil at this point.

The majority of my money goes towards movies, so I'd venture about $150 a month between going to see them, renting them, or buying them.

Not counting internet and cable bills?

I usually budget $200 a month, though lately I've been spending about $400.   :doh:

Depends. Sometimes, I don't buy anything for a month. And then the next, I'll blow $700-$1000. It's been done before >.< *sigh* I'm such an impulse buyer. I should try NOT to shop around too much on the net, coz I always see something I want.

I'm still in college so I have to resort to other means... So it brings me to a grand total of 30 bucks. For fast internet.

Way more than I should.

Then again, basically all I ask for holidays/birthday are DVDs/CDs.

Buuuut considering I saw Star Trek about... 7 times in the theaters..? I spend a fair amount.

Way way way too much. I basically collect TV series on DVD (this summer alone I got three seasons of How I Met Your Mother and one season of Futurama), and I just LOVE TV shows a lot.

I probably spend close to $50-$60 a month, but I'm trying to budget myself; I love movies, too, and while there are a couple I want to see in theaters right now I need to limit myself.

I'm still seeing Inception again, though.

Time is money, right? I think I spend way more money's worth of TIME on entertainment, than the cash itself to purchase the entertainment. I'll watch every movie that awed me at least twice, and I catch a new detail every time.

Title: Re: How Much Do You Spend on Entertainment?
Post by: asdf111 on August 21, 2014, 07:55:08 AM
I don't budget at all (although I probably should...)

I'd guess $150 / month?  Between paying for my internet service, netflix / spotify subscriptions, music and game purchases.  I don't go out that much though so I'm sure that saves me some money :C.
Title: Re: How Much Do You Spend on Entertainment?
Post by: zero5nine6 on September 02, 2014, 09:44:28 AM
Varies. There are too many things I want to do, eat, buy etc. In times when I have money, I end up using most of it. Then I cry at times when I don't and wished I had planned out my spending.  :(
Title: Re: How Much Do You Spend on Entertainment?

crunchyroll - 6.95/month
hulu plus - 7.99/month
paranormal reality tv (roku channel) - 5.99/month
xbox live - 59.99/year

Title: Re: How Much Do You Spend on Entertainment?
Post by: azooloop on November 09, 2014, 05:13:59 PM
I usually go to see 2-3 movies a month, buy 1-2 DVDs/Blu-rays a month, 1-2 video games a month. Then there's Netflix, cable and a bunch of other stuff I can't think of... short answer, too much.
Title: Re: How Much Do You Spend on Entertainment?
Post by: unmeiboy on April 20, 2015, 09:26:18 AM
A lot more than I'd like to. I buy CDs, DVDs, magazines, I go to concerts, buy goods when I go to concerts, go to see movies etc. Honestly I'm scared to count it. Last time I counted on how much I've spent on CDs was in 2011, and I was up at ~1400 USD. And my amount of CDs has more than doubled since then.
And that's just the CDs. orz
