I've been using Quicken for about thirty years, and it's easy - too easy - to see how much I have spent on various things, like camera batteries. Does $1,177 sound excessive? It does to me, and I buy generic batteries. That's since 2004 for camcorders and still cameras. How about $974 on memory cards since 2002?
If I had it do over again, I'd do it differently - somehow. All those small amounts add up over time.
Pro-rating over 10 years it may not seem quite as bad...
