I spend a considerable amount. It becomes a reality when I add up deductions
for taxes. Somewhere between $1000 to $2000. It really depends on what
you count.

I suspect my answer will be like most others. I spend it spread through out
the year. Funds from my school and the district must be spent a certain times
and in a prescribed manner. While money out of my pocket is flexible. I can
buy it when I need it and anywhere I choose.
