So where am I going with this? Well as well as getting what I've started done, or rather not starting anything new I was wondering how else I could cut back on hobby spending (as I'm sure many of us do at times), it was then I happend across a blog post over on Lone Pilgrim's Blog (one of quite a large number of blogs I follow). His quite simple take on hobby spending is too only purchase from a single fund, a fund which is increased through the sale of old hobby materials, small change and the like, while I'm sure he's far from the only person to take this approach I think it's a damn good idea.
That in mind I'm adding one more last minute hobby resolution, too try and make my hobby cash neutral for a year, which can only be a good thing really given my plans to hopefully buy a place of my own by the end of the year and a two week holiday to America in the spring. I'm gonna adopt the same format as lone pilgrim for this, which I hope he wont mind, so without further ado, here we go.
- Starting Balance 1st January (Previous Sales) = £37.85
- Sales since 1st January = £44.00
- Sales Fee since 1st January = -£1.22
- Purchases since 1st January = -£61.71
- Current Balance = £20.14
What are your spending habbits when it comes to the hobby? Do you let your hobby fund your hobby, work to a fixed hobby budget, or perhaps just purchase what you want when it's needed?
