and do you budget on how much money are you willing to lose, winning minus spending, each month?

    I used to spend a lotta money on booze and broads but now that I'm married again I cut back on the money I spend on broads.

    I use some of that money on the lottery now.

    I ain't one of them pencil-necked geek cheapskates keeping a tally on every dollar I blow either.

    I like havin a good time whatever I'm doin'.

    I can't stand cheapskates.

      I keep track each month how much I spend and win, (and lose, LOL). I try to budget but overall usually spend about $30 a week. Funny, I'll go thru stretches where I'll cut back out of guilt, then I'll spend extra money on scratchers or Pick 3.

      A lot of how much I spend depends on how good of a month I have selling furniture. If I'm having a bad month or go thru a period where I absolutely hate my job I play more money on the jackpot games praying I can retire. The way things are going in this economy, retiring is far far on the horizon.... or when I'm 6 feet under.

          No, I don't keep track.

          I spend whatever I 'feel' at the time..

          I gotta stop listening to those 'feelings'..

              I voted no, cause I don't want to know.

                        If I need to know how much I spent, I just multiply my winnings by 10 and that's pretty close

                          I'd be too depressed if I did that. I just discovered that I won $7 this morning - that's a huge jackpot for me! *sob*
