Furthermore, if you convert your entertainment dollars (break it down if you like) into beer bottles, how many would you have? ;-) Promote this thread!

And there are no beer bottles.

Au contaire, married guys like you too ought to give me a better idea of what's reasonable. ;-) In some months, I am spending something like 30% of my income on entertainment/books/eating out/boozing/whim purchases. That's totally insane and I need to cut back. cheers,

The rest I have saved for major purchases like the wedding or a car. They cost the same these days anyways.
