2013 Records

Last year, I made a New Year's resolution to buy a record every month.  I documented the first couple of months on Instagram - but then stopped.  I stopped buying one a month... but sometimes, I bought a couple a month.  So I figured that more than made up for it!  The goal was to build a record collection sloooowly (so I wouldn't spend a ton of money at once.)  And I accomplished that - so I'm very happy!

I got most of my records on Amazon or Ebay - there were a lot of good sellers with cheap options. I bought a few at Newbury Comics, but those were usually more expensive.  They have a sale once a month - buy 2 and get 1 free - so I took advantage of that.  And my sister got me a couple at Cheapo Records in Cambridge, one was only $1.99!  The most money I spent was about $40 on Johnny Cash, but it was worth it! (I'm going through a Johnny Cash phase right now.)

As you can tell, I didn't stray too far from my music taste.  I can't help it, I love me some Soul and Motown.  I got a few different ones in there!  I plan on buying a few different styles in the new year, although if it ain't broke don't fix it.  Plus, I need to add some Marvin Gaye to my collection. 

Here's to following through with a resolution!  Even if it wasn't consistent... and I had a little help from my friends.
