How much money do you spend a month on iPhone games?

I was just perusing a couple threads, and I saw people with huge lists of Apps they were going to buy this month. When I added the money up, some of the totals came to above $100...jeezaloo!I myself spend at most 5 bucks a month. How much do you guys spend?

Usually about $10 to $20 but considering a month like this one, maybe $40.

You shouldn't have made the ranges of the choices so small, but that's okay. Every month I buy 2 $25 giftcards
with cash and I charge my parents credit card for 0.99 if I see a cheap casual game I want, so around $60 a month for me. As you stated though, I can see that this month will probably come very close to $100. I've spent $35 alone today, and next Wednesday will be the same with new gameloft titles + Aralon coming out.

But wouldn't you rather invest that $60 a month into a full priced console game, rather than a bunch of bite sized portable games that you'll have to delete anyways? (cuz there's no way you have enough space on your iPod to sustain your buying rate)
I guess it's a matter of personal preference, but I would rather invest that money into a brand new game on my Xbox every month

Sitting around in front of my wide screen tv all day really isn't my thing so no my ps3 goes untouched. My 8 year brother plays it time to time though. But yeah, I do prefer my iPod. Even at 32gb, I do constantly delete games, sometimes those with only 30 minutes sank into it. But yeah, i guess this is my console now. There's a game I can find somewhere that'll appeal to any friend always, it's also the most impressive handheld device I have ever touched. Hahah.
