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

Our illustrious hostess Alissa needs a break so I am taking over for September.. Hosting this challenge is great fun and we have a great group of enablers hahah!!

The rules: List your budget for the month of September 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.

Hello girls I am back. Missed everyone. Whats been happening with me well....My husband went back to work after being unemployed for 8 and half months, daughter turned 18, son turned 13 so I now have only teenagers. I can go on but those are the most important things that has happened since I have been gone.

So now for this months $$$ well I think I will limit myself since I am saving for a new car and my husband always buys me scrapbooking stuff for my anniversary in Sept. so I should be able to get buy with only spending $50.00

Budget $50.00
Wishlist Flowers, Martha Stuart punch around

I want Tina's budget!!!!


Also, please note that I'm not including the Silhouette Cameo in my budget. I plan on getting one. I just want to see how everyone else likes theirs first. If there seems to be issues, I'll get the new KNK cutter, Zing. All I know is that I AM getting a new cutter, and it's a separate budget.

It includes both my SOD and Storyteller's Club kits as well as two Cricut items I just won on Ebay yesterday... Believe it or not, we're trying to watch our spending this month...

Budget: $175
Wishlist: Cricut cutting mat, 12x12 album pages, Storybook Cartridge, Life's a Party cartridge, MS 'Fence' Halloween punch, MS snowflake punch/stamp, EK 'Notebook' punch, TH Adage Tickets, brown, purple and/or gray mists, SOD Kit, Storytellers Kit
Twist: Absolutely NO paper (again), or $1 bin stuff!
