It is budgeting time for us here. I have had a very hefty video budget the
last few years because we were basically building a general video collection
from scratch. It is time to consider what a real year might look like for us
and one of the figures we would like to use is an average cost per video
item. Looking at our past year's purchases I find an average cost of $69.00.
The Bowker Annual gives an average video price of $84.00. Our $69.00 seems a
little low to me.

Are other people using an average price per item to guage their purchasing
budgets? If so, what is that average price?
