How Much Do You Spend On Music?

Post#1 » Fri Jun 19, 2009 4:16 pm

Just curious, but how much do folks typically spend on music each month? I know it can vary a lot, especially if you collect rare/expensive albums. Do you stick to a certain amount each month? Do you just buy whatever you want when you find it?

I try to stick to < $50 per month for new releases, used bin finds, and easy-to-get ebay items. Doesn't always happen, but for me it's a reasonable limit to try and stick to

Too much - £200 at least, but I am lucky as a have fair bit of disposable income at the moment. This is going to change when we buy the marital home though

Average per month: around $3,000 - $5,000 on the label, under $50 for my personal collection

Haha, 4 digits, I am not surprised here!

That could be 1000 or 9999, probably closer to the latter one, i guess!

budgets never work with me.. I guess I spend about 100€ average, in times when I persuade myself that I had more at disposal, maybe twice :oops:

Depends on the month, how much I have worked and if any of my top want list items happen to be availible. There have been months where I have spent very little as I've had more important priorities. There have also been months where it's been a couple thousand USD though.

Around $50 a month these days. It used to be closer to $100. The most I've ever spent in one month was $175.
