I used to spend stupid amounts, about 200 a month but the last 2 years have been difficult, luckily im in the position of being sent tunes and making my own. Ive been so much more into the production side of things since I havnt been able to afford vinyl!!

still buy lots of tunes from drop records as they always sort me out with treats, but buying less vinyl due to cutting dubplates, that is the major wallet destroyer!!! :cry:

Around £200-250 a month. Not all dubstep but I would say 50% of it is.

Holy Shit!
That's some serious cheddar.
I shouldn't be spending anything since I don't have a job but that doesn't stop me.
What an addiction this shit is.

ha, at the moment not a penny, trying to save what little money i have left till the end of the summer.

i dont think even at my peak i was spending anything like 50 quid a week, that seems like too much to me, you all must be on some good wages...

When I first started buying vinyl, I used to buy 200$ a WEEK, in tunes, crazy amounts of cash, but that was when things were cheaper and such, and that job I had was cush. Now I buy about 4 records a month, and mostly DL my tunes now, cause that is all I can do with my budget.
