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

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

I am in - this month is important for budgeting as I have to start Christmas shopping and there are some scrapping items on my list!

I need to make a list of what I need and then can better define my budget.

I'm in again! Mine should be zero too, but like you said, Courtney, that's just not realistic! (Especially with an Expo coming this weekend! EEK!)

Budget: $150
Wishlist: SOD Kit, Storytellers kit, Expo classes (2), blank white cards, cardstock, TH Tags class supplies,

I'll have more wishlist stuff, but that's all I can think of now... And I still have to come up with a twist... How about NOT breaking my budget this month??

I honestly may need two budgets this month. A personal budget, and a work budget. I do have access to the class room supplies, but I want to offer a card class with a Christmas theme. I think I might buy a Christmas stamp set. To be honest, a lot of the store supplies aren't my style. It would be much easier to teach students something I can create in my comfort zone, but I also don't want to invest obscene amounts of money that's for a class. Still thinking about what to do. I also need to buy a DCWV stack for a paper bag mini. I have LOADS of DCWV stacks I could use, but sadly those were all J's exclusives. Don't think Ms would appreciate that.

Hmmmm, I work today, and I have a coupon in my pocket. Do I get a Christmas PP or a Christmas stamp set? What do I want to start working on first? Can't wait to practice making some store displays.

I unpacked so many tantalizing Christmas goodies yesterday. Love the little TH Christmas trinkets and muse coins. I'll probably have to have them. Today though, I plan to go to Ms and get one Christmas stamp set (with a coupon) to use on the TH Tags sample I need to practice.
