Very quick update here with only Ebay sellers and Best Buy getting my money this month. First up is the Cheap Trick Silver DVD that I won for $10.01. I’ve been immersing myself in all things Cheap Trick for a couple months now so I was able to borrow this from a guy at work and I loved it so I wanted a copy for my own collection. Won it on Ebay for $7.01 + $3 shipping. The DVD is a concert celebrating the 25th anniversary of the band and it’s an excellent show with a diverse setlist. I bought the four Manowar releases from the same seller who was selling them as a lot. I have both Battle Hymns MMXI and The Lord Of Steel on my want list for the last couple of years because I didn’t want to pay the high import price online. Usual Ebay prices for these are also high if not higher especially with decent shipping so I waited. I stumbled on this auction and grabbed the regular releases of both albums AND the Metal Hammer editions that came in the special Metal Hammer Manowar magazines. I didn’t get the magazines with these CDs but I’m psyched to have the CDs because I understand that they are a different mix. Honestly, $81 for all four CDs is a steal.

On to Best Buy where the exclusive editions of both new Def Leppard and Motorhead releases were available. The Def Leppard release was the exclusive 2CD and 1 Blu-Ray release and the Motorhead was the deluxe digipak with a bonus live DVD. Prices were comparable to online and record stores for the regular editions so I actually left the house and walked into Best Buy and dropped my $34.

Total = $125.01

Total (year) = $2034.84

Average Price (per item) = $11.83

Total CDs (year) = 153

Total DVDs & BluRays (year) = 5

Total LPs (year) = 6

Total Box Sets (year) =8
