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!!!

I'm going to be brave and join in this time around. I'm going to budget myself at $160, but I have to think about what to shop for. I'll start off with 4 punches, Stickles, and buttons. And maybe a Sizzix die or two.

I feel almost like I'm cheating, though. I'll be going away a couple times during the month and be out of my usual routine, which will hopefully keep me away from temptation and on the budget track!

I'm so not in the mood for fall/Halloween/xmas papers. I saw tons as I plowed through all the sneak peeks on Saturday and nothing jumped out at me. Do you have anything in mind, Holly?

I vote for Michelle, sorry, Holly! But she was pushing that PP to EVERYONE and she is the one that finally pushed me into the "I'm for sure buying the Cricut" zone.

Holly, you may just have to try harder next month.

Yeah, I have to agree with voting for Michelle this time...I didn't really care about more pp until she just kept going on and on and she really made me want more! I don't need more, but she made me want more....Shame Shame!
