Painting Supplies: 19%
Gaming Supplies: 11%
Terrain Supplies: 8%
How much of the total spending was on kickstarters: <1%
How much at conventions: 25%
How much FLGS: Kinda lost track and don't feel up to backing it out. Not significant though.
How much toward things that are getting to the table: 24%
The account swears by his numbers and it turns out my initial estimate of only going over budget by 5% was wrong. He says it is more like 17%. So, not as great as I had hoped but still a reduction from last years 23% over budget numbers. Once again (making 2 years in a row) modelling and painting supplies took a pretty major hit with the purchase of my second hobby lamp (this one for my airbrush area). It also looks like I got a little carried away at Adepticon. But there was a major shift on kickstarters, getting it down to "noise" level!
In truth, the money spent toward things getting to the table may be optimistic, since we have already seen how many hobby games I can manage to get. They are all things that are pretty solid for the local group, so I am going to stand behind those numbers for now.

Up next, final thoughts.
