Alrighty....here it is the August budget challenge....to help us stay within limits on our scrappy buying!!!
The rules: List your budget for the month of August that you want to spend on scrappy goodies!!! You only need one budget, we are not breaking it down into impulse and list! BUT....LIST the items that are definites that you want to buy this month!
The catch: You can spend your money on whatever you want, list or impulse, but you must buy and have me mark off at least half of the items that you list!!! For example, if you list 10 items, you have to buy at least 5 of those and have me strike them off your list, etc.
Please tell me how much you spent throughout the month, and I will keep track of it in this post! You do not have to include costs for adhesives, swaps, or shipping.
Please enable and tempt us to buy the wonderful items you want....but don't tempt us to bust our budget!!!
