Welcome to the June Budget Challenge! We're here to stay within limits on our scrappy spending!!!

The rules: List your budget for the month of June that you want to spend on supplies. Then, list the high priority items 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 at least half of the items on your wish 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, make sure to tell me when I am supposed to strike off an item!

Tell us how much you spend throughout the month, and I will keep track of it in this post. We like details about your shopping around here. No such thing as TMI! You do not have to include costs for adhesives, swaps, gifts or shipping.

Please enable and tempt us to buy the wonderful items we want....but don't tempt us to bust our budget!!!

TWISTED!!! List at least one thing you are not allowed to buy for the whole month.

The title says banana bowl goal, but this is the budget challenge right? The one that I fail so miserably at? I am going to work really hard this month to be good.

I'm back this month after blowing it bad last month.

I know for my twist-border punches since I bought 3 last month.

Be back later for the rest.

Because I knew the diet started today, last night I placed an order at the Sizzix outlet for $30.00. So, this morning I get an email from them with a whole new line of dies called vintage that are gorgeous. Don't they know that I am on a diet!!!

Courtney, we need to lock ourselves up in solitary confinement for the month. I swear paper is like crack to me.

Tammy, welcome back!! I can't wait to see what you do with your wedding photos. The pimp hat rocked!

Where the heck is Shayla!!! I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS!!! You did it!!! Six month straight with no scrap shopping. You are amazing.
