2010 Hobby Expenses

It’s that time of the year for another not so obligatory post for my 2010 hobby expenses ranging from figures, nendoroids to custom skins for my PS3, PSP and iPhone 3G. In all honesty, I am quite happy that I managed to trim my expenses down to below $1,500 so I met my quota from previous year. See my 2009 hobby expenses for comparison.

    Ah, I need to make an analysis of what I bought this year. The amount I spent this year would depress me however.
    That being said, Happy New Year pal ~

    My spending was around $501-$1500 including games from the top of my head.
    2010 was the last year in figure collecting. I’ve canceled the 2 orders coming into the New Year (aka this year).
    It’s been fun while it lasted but I don’t have that urge in wanting them anymore. I still love figures but from an eye view perspective. ^^

      $501 to $1500 is pretty normal I would say. No more figure/figma collecting ? My urge has gone down a lot compare to 2008 and 2009 and not to mention, I have other priorities ^^;;. It’s a good thing on your end since you don’t have that urge anymore so you can actually start saving $$ ^^
