How much are you saving???
 
I thought I would throw this question out there to see what most people are saving by RYO.I am on my 5th month I believe and my savings are tremendous.
When I started I went a bit overboard buying tobacco and trying out diffent tubes.The shipping cost killed me on numerous orders.I also had the expense of the PM2+.Now that I have setled down on all my purchases here is the breakdown.
I live in Northern Calif.(State of Jefferson) and smoked 2 packs a day of Camel 99s at 8 buck a pop minimum.On a heavy drinking weekend it jumps to 2 1/2 to 3 packs a day.At just 2 pack a day for 30 days,I was spending a minimum of $480 bucks a month on cigarettes alone.My savings with RYO has cut my hobby/habit exspense by $400 bucks.It is like pennies from heaven.400 bucks to "ME" is a significant chunk of money.I do not know what took me so long to get on board.The purchase of the PM2+ has a lot to do with me sticking with RYO I do believe.

Im spending about 15 to 25 percent of what I used to spend on otc cigs now. The best thing I bought was a pm3 injector. I loved the pm2 but this one is even easier to make sticks. The savings and flavor is wonderful.

With the price of cigarettes being $10-$12 a pack..I did the math and I'm saving approximately $115-$120 a week! If I switched to a cheaper tobacco I'd probably save even more

I make my own for a total annual cost of less than $300 calculated based on 1 ppd. I hear that smokes cost around $8 per pack in this state which would amount to over $3,000 per year meaning Iím saving about $2,700 per year. I just received an order of 25 lbs of tobacco and 2 cases of tubes for a bit under $500. Thatíll last me nearly 1 1/2 years.

I'm in sw Virginia and I was buying a carton every 5-7 days at $38-$40 per carton so I was spending roughly $240+ a month. After recouping the initial cost back of buying the Powermatic 2+.....I'm spending roughly $38 a month with RYO, so a monthly savings of atleast $200. So glad I made the switch months ago, and never looking back to store bought again.

I'm saving $10 a pack making exactly the same tasting cig from a Marlboro Light 100 at $0.75 a pack from a store rate in Connecticut of $10.75 with tax.

Using the Powermatic III allowing my to make a pack in 3 mins. Bought a second machine and using both get a pack cranked out in 2 mins.

You can make a pack in 3 minutes? I have the 2+ and I've never timed myself on 20 cigs before but I feel like it takes a lot longer then 3 minutes for a pack lol.... Maybe if I didn't have to snip the excess tobacoo off the end (I smoke regulars, the machine can make 100s) I could make them a lot faster

Yes 2 min a pack using an automated machine like the Powermatic III just cranking them out with 2 machines at the same time. The machinesHas density setting and works flawlessly. A carton of 100's takes 25-30 mins from setup to cleanup.

I can't quit it completely. But I always try to quit anytime. Though I have decreased the amount of Cig I took every day.

Thereís a member her that can hand crank a pack that fast.

Thereís no way I can go that fast with a crank or auto machine.

Fresh choice/revolution/whatever claims a 3 minute pack but thatís impossible with it. At least for me.
