Nah, you're only allowed to include your own personal expenditures.

Actually this year has been kind of slow... I guess about $900 total so far. Quite a bit more if I'm allowed to include flashlights.

I look at everyone else's expenditures on lasers, and then I compare it to mine :crackup: only a measly $120

I've spend a lot!! I'd have to look at paypal to give a more accurate amount but I know I haven't only sold like 2-3 lasers recently! I know and his gb have been adding up quickly as well as the 7 x 9mm diodes, the ophir/argmeter, bench top power supply, hot air reflow/solder station, RGB diode combo, all the machining work from mrcrouse and so on so forth. I'm almost scared to tally it all up!!!

Just went through my PP information and did all the maths from my purchases since August 2010:

Total money spent on lasers: 4531.96
Total money earned on lasers: 1189.93
Net money sunk into lasers: 3342.03

Total money spent on lasers this year: 3240.9
Total money earned on lasers this year: 783.61
Net money sunk into lasers this year: 2457.29


If anyone is interested, my income this year has been 5269.90, my car payments roughly 1380, leaving my total remaining money at 3889.90. Of course this is an estimation, but that means that out of all the money I have obtained, only 1432.61 has been spent on other things, like gas, Mumford and Sons concert, and food.

Hope to see more people in this thread. :)


PS - Interestingly enough, my previous answer(on September 30th, 2012) was pretty close. Before that date I had spent 828.78 on lasers. Although I also sold 135.04 dollars worth of laser stuff for a net of 693.74. I have done work on my bank account in the last 8 months or so!

Wow that's how you micro manage!
=)

Yeah...I like running numbers like that. It is fun to take count of all the income, then tally all my expenses, and then tally all my sales and such. Maybe I should do accounting or something instead of Electrical Engineering. Maybe not though. Idk.
