Bookish Life Budget ~ June 2015 Check-in

Posted July 1, 2015 by Tanya in Book Haul, Budget / 4 Comments


This is where I keep track of what I have spent throughout the year on bookish items. These will include cons, books, memberships and the like. At the end of the year I will put all the month’s together and get an overall picture of my bookish life addiction.

Category Amount Spent this Month Remaining Balance
RT15 Final Payment $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
B&N Membership Renewal $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
Readers & ‘Ritas 2015 Event Ticket $170.12 $0.00 $170.12
Audible Subscription $173.88 $24.84 $149.04
Books (Ebooks, paperbacks & hardcovers) $325.67 $48.01 $277.66
Total: $714.67 $72.85 $641.82

I can’t say I’m proud of my results this month, as there were still a lot of books purchased. On the up side, I did stay below $100! There should be some celebration behind that, right? I tell myself that because my buying is from Book Outlet, and they are just so darn cheap, I can’t be going over budget. The problem lies that each book may be cheap, but when you hit that Add to Cart button so many times, it adds up. Even with a coupon! So let’s review the books added to my shelves this month!

I wasn’t sure if this would be included in my budget or not, but I was really desperate on shelf space so hubby thought he could build a shelf that would take the place of two of my shorter ones. He built me a great, tall, wide shelf so I don’t have to squeeze and pile books. (For now!)

Take a look at his handy work!


See all that space on the top shelf? That’s just aching to be filled. All the rearranging not only replaced my two short shelves, but opened up a shelf on one of my other shelves, so I’ll have room there as well! I think he might be regretting all his help! 🙂

So how was June for everyone else? Did you get some good books? Share some of your haul in the comments, or if you have your own haul post, link it! I’d love to see what you hauled!
