Mayor Michael Bloomberg shelled out big bucks during his 12 years at City Hall.

According to a report in the New York Times, the billionaire spent $650 million of his own money during his tenure in office.

That's more than $4 million per month on average.

The money includes $30 million to the Metropolitan Museum of Art since 2002.

Bloomberg did all that spending while only taking one dollar per year as salary.
