replacing parts on bike, going clipless, buying bibs (well, that was only $33), buying a torque wrench and bits ($30 for 5 bits of metal! for ****'s sake!). i probably went $200-$300 over budget.

You didn't spend; you invested. Look it as this... your bike is keeping the medical bills away compared to the Hoverround type going to the Costco who doesn't spend on bike stuff.
