    My first year so I wanted to look back on the records I got and see which ones I felt were values and which ones I maybe regret. Food for thought, going into 2019 (definitely renewing! I love this forum and experience so much).

    Great idea! I’m a month in and I may keep a similar spreadsheet.

    I should do this too. Don’t know if I can commit the time when I just wanna make cocktails and listen Queen.

    What the NA mean?

    2.55 for "Broccoli" is a steal.

    Isn’t n/a standard shorthand for not applicable? I’d imagine that he’s using it because they’re the records he’s not able to grade yet, either haven’t arrived or have arrived and not spend enough time with yet.

    In the U.S. it also means not available. In this case it could be that either those items were literally not available or simply not purchased and therefore not available for grading, but I think it's more likely what you already stated that they just were not graded yet.

    I like this idea, but I’m scared to see the actual dollar amount I spent this year. :whistle:

    @GelloJive @ericj32 @JoeMac7 @jaycee
    Thanks for checking this out! Yes, n/a means they’re in my December shipment. Very excited for all of them however.

    @Melancholy_Melody i forced myself to open my eyes. Last month, my wife said it may be getting out of control but I didn’t see it. Added it all up and was like wow, $1200. That’s not completely out of budget, but I wanted to see if I regretted anything. A few I did. But most I adore.

    Cool budgeting exercise which I may end up stealing and using at the start of the new year. :)

    Not a chance in hell I'm doing this. I know I'm probably spending too much but I don't plan on stopping. More ignorance the better.

    Isn't it bad enough Cogs gives you a "Gentle" reminder of what you've spent whenever you log in. Regardless of which number you want to use, Minimum, Median or Max..........you know the truth is in there somewhere and it most certainly will be more than you thought, lol

    I always say to myself, "Oh, I bought some records that have appreciated a lot..." and just apply that to...everything.

    Yikes, I just did this after seeing your post. My VMP total for the year was $1,775 :eek:
    Definitely more than I thought, but all good albums. May need to slow down for year two.
