I spent a lot more this year than I normally do. For work clothes I only bought one sweater from Ann Taylor when I usually get more in previous years. This year I spent a ton over November and ended up buying about a year's worth of books and video games. However considering I spent barely any on these two categories in previous years I consider this to be finally getting everything that had been accrued over the years. I finally want to get back into these two hobbies again.
