Cutting the Budget 2014


September 2014

Book and Author Source Price + Tax Budget Left

left for September 2014

Week 36 of 2014

I once again read books from NetGalley and that I have bought previously. I am tempted to buy books so much, but back to school clothes…well those bills are still haunting me. So this is a good time to go back and get some books caught up before I buy something that just goes into the TBR pile again. Now that we are in week 36, here is a thought…just a little over 15 weeks until Christmas. Time to start gearing up our wish lists!

How was your week?

Delighted Readers Cutting the Budget Rules for 2014

  • $40.00 $35.00 $30.00 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!

I caught some books on sale so I’ve spent all my budget of $25 this week o_0: Alpha & Omega Vol. 1-2 (graphic novel by Patricia Briggs) $15, Carniepunk Antho $2.50 b/c it contains a few shorts from fav series, The Reunited by Shiloh Walker $1.90 and Cinder by Marissa Meyer $2.99. I know…this will test me, but I’m determined not to spend now that I’ve hit the limit of my budget. It helps that I have a nice pile of review books to keep me busy.


I caught some freebies (3) and paid 99 cents for one book this week and I cut my budget down to $25 😀

I also got some ARC’s through NG, so that helped me out too.
