Week 25 of 2014

Hitting the TBR pile like its burning and I won’t get a chance again. So with that, I have really kept my spending down. Only one book this week and it is part of the Alpha Pack series I am catching up on. Looking like I will knock off $5 on next months budget if I keep this up.

How was your week?

Delighted Readers Cutting the Budget Rules for 2014

  • $40.00 $35.00 a month spending limit on bound & ebooks – see I am cutting the budget!
  • $22.95/month for 2 Audible Credits (Currently have 1) – Changed to $14.95 for one credit a month. Again I cut my budget…and audio book credits.
  • Taxes are included in book prices
  • Weekly report on what was spent
  • Use includes coupon, code, or subscription services
  • Budget includes ebooks, bound books, and audio books
  • Books received as gifts, won or bought with a gift card can be included but they cost you nothing since you didn’t actually spend your own money on them. So keep using them and keeping your budget healthy!

How are you cutting your budget but still getting to read everything you want?

Nice job! I hit the TBR pile and my review pile hard this week too. I did purchase the latest Kendall McKenna, but that was a planned spend for months. I’ve got about $15 left on the budget and still money on a gift card if I get desperate. 😉

I need to get caught up on Alpha Pack too since I’ve read it willy nilly so far.

awesome! I haven’t made any new purchases…but, I haven’t kicked a book in my TBR pile yet either. I still have a good amount of money set aside for my budget. I brought three books in June so far and they were all 99 cents ;D
