How much do you spend on 'Entertainment' a month?

Recommended Posts

CD's, DVD's, VHS, Video Games, Books, things like that. Not counting cinema tickets, gigs, theatre trips, visits to the pub or anything like that. Just media that you take home to keep.

I only ask because I'm budgeting for next month in my head as I spent far, far too much last month and I wondered what everyone else spends.

Oh god knows.

I'm in the midst of collecting the X-Files sexy boxsets, and I'm midway through season 3 now.

Basically, once I finish one season I'll get the next, so it depends for me. I'd say about £100 or so at least though.

Depending on whether I am working good hours or not at work, its usually around $100 or so. Thats all DVD's. I dont buy music at all, I borrow it....uh...permently...from friends and other people that I just haven't met yet. :shifty:

Unless it is a really good month for new releases (see: last October. Jimmy Eat World, the Used, and Sum 41 all came out that month), I usually buy one CD a month. I dont buy movies too often unless I really, really want to see it, and I rarely have time to play video games, so I dont buy too many of those. So, I would say between 10 bucks and 30 bucks. This month is going to be $30 unless I find something else to buy.

ok this is all based on a weekly rate.

I spend $18 on video/dvd rentals(for the extra $2 I get to keep them a week)

I spend nothing on music because I listen to the radio.

as far as buying dvds/games

I buy maybe $20 worth of dvds a month (I buy all my dvds from ebay so if I search i can usually get around 3-4 dvds for $20)

I buy a new game every 4 months unless I come across a great deal on ebay

It depends.

I don't 'regularly' buy anything entertainment-ish.

I buy stuff I like when it comes out. Stuff I like rarely comes out :P

Not including presents bought for other people, I haven't bought a DVD or computer game since Dawn of War came out (forgot when that was..November?)

I haven't bought a music CD since Rhapsody's Dark Secret in July (and that's not because of filesharing. Ok...maybe a little bit.)

So yeah, unless you count the £14.00 for broadband, I don't spend much on being entertained.

Edit: Actually, that's a lie.

About £20 a month for Warhammer. But again, that's not every month. Maybe every two months..

I buy anywhere from 5-20 DVDs a week, plus one box set. I'll also buy around a book every 2 weels. CD wise, I buy around 2-3 a week, but that's only because I can't find 90% of the stuff I want and I'm forced to download it. That's the basic stuff.

I failed math, now you guys do the rest.

How do people get time to watch 20 DVDs a week?

He never said he watched them, just bought them. I buy tons of DVDs at a time and take forever to get around to them, I do the same shit with video games. Hell, I'm looking at a DVD on my shelf right now that I've had for two years and still haven't watched it. Stupid? Yes, but it's sandwiched between a bunch of box sets, it gets lost in the shuffle.

But even with my insane schedule, I can usually watch two DVDs a day. This weekend alone I went on a spree and probably watched 10 DVDs on top of working about 25 hours.
