# How much money have you spent so far on cubing?

#### CriticalCubing

Around 100$, a bit more or less. Puzzles, Lube, Stickers etc. #### Tim Major ##### Platinum Member Not much. My parents on the other hand..... ._. I think your Mum could've retired by now if you weren't cubing. #### arcio1 ##### Member Same as Ottozing, my parents often give me money for comps I think I have spent about 4000PLN on comps so far. I don't really spend money on puzzles, I just bought some of them in the beginning, practised and won the rest on comps #### KiwiCuber ##### Member Well, a lot. Cubes: easily NZ$1200

Accessories (stickers, lube etc): at least NZ$100 Comps: My only two comps + one more in two weeks -New Zealand to Las vegas = NZ$2500 (hotel, flights, insurance etc. Probably cost more than this)
-Wellington to Auckland = NZ$150 (cheapest options everywhere) -Next comp is 10 minutes drive away so NZ$25 registration fee

Total = NZ$3975 (or more) approx US$3500

Maybe slightly under a thousand?

In the thousands including airfare, hotels, and gas. If you were to count how much my insurance paid for the car accident I was in on my way to a cubing competition, it would be in the tens of thousands.

#### Daniel Wu

I would estimate somewhere between one and two thousand dollars.

I used to sell lots of cubes at school, so for personal cubing expenses, I'm probably in the positive. But the travel probably cost a lot (I didn't pay it though).

And also how much did you pay for the broken arm?

I would estimate probably $200-300 on cubes if you don't count trips to comps. #### Roman ##### Member Pretty interesting thread. Whe I started cubing, I bought puzzles regulary. My collection is now in my parent's house, and it includes teraminx, 2x2-11x11 (except 8x8), 20 cubes that I bought for MBLD and other 20+ different twisty puzzles (each of them are ~$10). I guess the collection costs around $400-$700.
First trip to Moscow for cubing was $700, second was around that. I don't know what other costs I should include. Total sum is approximately$2000.
