I spend about 40$/month on rats and mice (tho hopefully that will go down now that im buying my own!), 10$ on mealworms, and 10$ on crickets.

You mean on food and stuff? Or on new purchases... hehe

I'm sure that my numbers won't be as impressive as others... but I guess that I spend around $40 a month on food...

As for new additions -- I've been going a little nuts for the last few months *grin*...

Let's see -- in May, I spent $310 on 4 new leos (blizzard, blizzard het, patternless 66% het albino -- RIP, hypo tang)...
In July, I spent $465 on 1.2 albino leos
In August, I spent $275 on another blizzard (female this time), and a patternless 66% het blizzard... and $150 on another 0.1 albino
And so far this month -- I've spent $675 on a super hypo carrot tail male, and a striped female from the same carrot tail line..
Oh, and did I mention that I'll probably be spending another $650 on 2 more girlfriends for the carrot tail boy?

LOL -- holy ****. I didn't realize how much I've been spending until I looked at it typed out... hehe I could've got myself a new car for that! Well... a crappy car anyways

So anyways, that's me

You are sick, very sick. Then again so am I. On food I spend about $300. Then when you talk about new purchaces it gets worse. I have run out of caging and the stuff I have is falling apart. I am in the mist of moving and when that is done I will order my new stuff, approx. $5000. I also want some new snakes there is a jungle samon that Rich Ihle produced this year and it is $9500. So it can get very bad.

Hahaha, I spend $25 on crickets, $10 on mealies, and $10 on kingworms... Can't go over my paper route/allowance/babysitting money... just under $100 a month... and, geez, my collection is growing fast. I'm getting into geckos (none yet) but I have a beardie, 5 chinese mantids, 13 hissers, and 15 Annam sticks (m. extradentata), all since early june... and growing.

Hmm, on my 4 snakes I probably pay about 100$ every 3 months on food...but I buy mice from a pet store, so I pay for the mark-up...I'm gonna start getting them mail-order I think...I buy a small bail of aspen bedding every once in a while when the litter needs changing, and that costs me about 11$...
The cost of keeping my 6 rats varies depending on how much money I have left after the snakes...when money's tight I feed them dog and people food (which I don't pay for) and keep them on, they don't cost me anything to keep, that's why rats are so great, they'll eat pretty much anything!
