    I haven't spent anything, and I don't plan to either. I'd really like to get premium items, but there's way more important things to spend money on :(

    well done you

    How many forum members does it takes to change a light bulb?

    1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed
    14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently
    7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs
    1 to move it to the Lighting section
    2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section
    7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
    5 to flame the spell checkers
    3 to correct spelling/grammar flames
    6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid
    2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"
    15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct
    19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum
    11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
    36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty
    7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs
    4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's
    3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group
    13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
    5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy
    4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"
    13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"
    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

    Tooooo much! But I look at it this way....I could be spending on worse vices than a game! So I think it's worth it!

    This thread is hilarious. The list of how many it takes to change a lightbulb/light bulb made my day and the question of spelling between "doughnuts" and "donuts" is really broadening my horizons beyond my normal argument between "pop" and "soda" (or maybe the generic "Coke"). I am from Michigan and now live in Texas I still say a carbonated beverage should be called "pop" but when I say it here in Texas "give me a large pop" I get the strangest looks of confusion...or as AM put a gif of Sheldon, a look of derision.

    Oh, I do not want to know how much I have spent, my wife would kill me

    A little over $60 dollars would be my estimate. I still have over 120 donuts I haven't used (I'm not counting the ones I've gotten from this Halloween).

    EDIT: Scratch that. I have now spent a total of $70. I got the Tray of 132 Donuts.

    Way too much, way beyond a reasonable amount I spent $70 just since this Halloween update

    That was incredibly awesome. Maybe the best post I've ever seen on this forum.

    That's exactly what I was thinking!

    Not to mention the 5 odd people who will try to turn it into an "add-me" thread
    04/14/2013

    Those threads are irrelevant now. The mere fact that this game continues to release new content means that people will probably continue to spend more money, some people might not spend any but others will continue to spend and spend.

    I have probably spent $100 since the most recent of those threads was started.

    no more.... saving money to get married and £6.99 would have bought me at least 0.005% of my dress

    I suspect you misplaced the decimal point a couple places! Otherwise you wouldn't be sweating over a measly seven pounds. My wife and I had a Marge and Homer wedding cake topper (Prom Marge and Homer action figures) and then we forgot to put it on the damn cake. Oh, well.

    Someone in one of these threads said they bought one Golden Scratcher per month as a very reasonable $1/month rate. I've adopted that philosophy. I've been playing for three calendar months and have purchased 3 scratchers (yielding 79 donuts so far).

    Probably around $60. I purchased the $50 donut pack, and I have been doing 1 golden scratchy a week for the last few months.

    About $300 ... It was either spend it on designing my springfield, or spend it to buy food.

    Food is overrated, plus you never have the excitement of discussing whether a pastry that's offered for a "limited time" should ever be offered at any price to those who missed it the first time around, whether or not the bakery is willing to offer it.

    So my money has been very well spent here. :roll:
