OK, my New Year's resolution for 2008: I will stay under $2000!

Let's see how long that will last  :laugh:

To keep track of my aim I will use this SQL-Query:
SELECT 2000-SUM(Price) AS [Remaining Budget] FROM PurchaseInfo WHERE YEAR(PurchaseDate)=2008

Not all my orders from this year have arrived yet. So I'll have to add mine later on.

Took a quick look at the stats so far though and it looks somewhat irritating. 2004 has by far the highest SRP total but not the price paid total is only slightly higher than some other years :o Maybe that year I bought several Box Set where the content was available separately...?

Also, the price paid total for 2007 so far (with some titles still out on delivery) seems ludicrously high... Something must be wrong... :bag:

EDIT:
 :yahoo: I found what's wrong! DVD Profiler is mixing currencies... So, a) I won't be able to post my stats and b) saved myself from a heart attack.

How do you find these details out?

 :bag: I only use it to keep track of what I've got, tend not to bother with the other functions.

Even though I am sure it can be done in DVD Profile somehow... I personally not sure how it is done. I always have kept track of this each year through a separate database. I just use Microsoft Works database and then have it set up where I type in the SRP and the Price Paid... and it automatically fills in the field for price saved.

I guess besides Pete most others may have used the Charts in DVD Profiler. There is charts for Price paid as well as SRP which can be displayed by year.

yeah... I don't do it that way because there is many odd-ball releases I get that don't have an SRP listed at all. So I use the SRP from an online site and do it the way I do. I don't submit the srp because I don't feel up to finding several places that agree on SRP when many is off from each other by a penny or two.

I have done it in my CCViewer, of course  ;D
(which also produces with the latest version the nice table I posted above)

That's only 2/3! If you extrapolate that you may end up spending as much as $3000 this year :dance:
