My budget has shrunk over the last couple years but I don't tend to plan based on money but more now plan for exclusives I won't later suffer buyers remorse from.  I've been slowly ebaying some old comic-con exclusives I've found myself wondering why I even bought when I was cleaning out my old condo.

Well then...my budget is going to be [responsibly] blown out of the water this year.

I mean, what a day.  SO many great reveals.

No actual budget - it just depends what catches my eye. However, every year I get more and more picky about what I’m willing to purchase, so I guess that’s a form of budgeting, lol.

Ways try to have atleast $500 to spend solely on stuff on the exhibit hall floor.

$125 of that will be going on the Turtles set.

Also eyeing thr Macho Man

Will probably get some random non exclusive Pops and graphoc novels too.

So I just got my credit card statement.

Um.

Ouch.

Thankfully, SDCC only happens once a year. Maybe I didn't _need_ to buy all those art prints and exclusives.

All told, I spent right about what I thought I would – 1k.

This includes convention exclusives as well as artist commissions.
