When purchasing more of these items in the New Items tab you could accidentally buy more than you want. Especially if you also use the duplicate function (you could end up spending SP without realizing).

I think the price list for Aerobic Mats is not up to date.
I have a new game that was started on the Party Update and I just finished the Grooving Guru quest. I bought all the mats for simoleons and the next two for 8 SP and 12 SP and expected to find 11 mats in my inventory. There were only 10. I panicked, believing I sold one mat by accident when placing them and downloaded my last save (luckily made a few minutes earlier).

Well, for the price I paid there were really only 10 mats, there is none for 1900 simoleons in the store. Prices go up from 1300 to 2500 directly (see screenshot). The remaining prices have not changed, so we can only have a total of 15 mats in our town, including the one in the gym.
