GAH!!!!!!!!! My manager had me unpacking all the new K&Co spring stuff. Oh my goodness, some of it is fabulous. There are some chipboard letters I'm just drooling over. I only found three sets in the box and someone already bought two of them. I really wanted to buy the last one. They are gorgeous. Alas, I remembered my one little word. Restraint.

Sonja, what carts did you get?

I don't blame anyone for not following my budget break down, as it's mostly for me to break my budget! I have projects to make, budgets to blow and not enough time or money. I'm still PT at M's, and still alive at my other job. There are 5 core staff at 2 temps (Friday is their last day). 8 women in a very small space, with lots of people coming and going, phones ringing, and tons of learning- its been interesting.
I spent $21 on Slice cartridges and $13 on albums for my SIL.

Hello Ladies

Kelly, I am totally loving my new job!! I am the new Controller of Cintron Beverage Group. They have been without an accountant for 3 months now so I have a lot to do and am totally busy all day, which makes the day fly by. Thank you all for the well wishes, I really got lucky in finding a job so quickly. And you know when I was home and not working I totally did not have time to scrap!! I think i really do MAKE time when my time is limited.

Sonja, I too have dropped to just the basic kit in February....i love their kits but they get pretty spendy....I too need absolutely nothing!! but NEED is not an option when it comes to scrapping HAHAAH!!

I went shopping on Monday and did pretty well. I spent $58 at J's but had a $50 gift card...on the bottom where it tells you how much you saved...yeah i saved $128 so I think I did pretty darn good....I got 4 ms punches, and a ton of christmas scrapping stuff...ohhh and buffalo snow for my village (thats what put me over my card so technically it wasn't scrappy stuff hahaah)

I then went to M's because I had a gift card for there also...I spent $14 over my $30 gift card. SO Tammy, please deduct $14 from my budget!!

Boy have I missed you ladies! OH and it was 14 degrees here this morning...i was totally not a happy camper!!

It's been the 70s during the day here. Hoping for hot chocolate weather soon.

I haven't spent anything. Who's impressed?

Well I'm impressed, Alissa! (And just a little jealous!) I'm sooo weak-willed, I caved on the Peachy Cheap deal... drat!

So mark me off another $9.99, Tammy!
After SOD, that'll leave me all of $5 to spend for the month!

I'm blaming Courtney... She turned me on to those sites a few months back!! Thanks a lot!

I am definitely impressed Alissa! You, Kelly and Vivian are all not being yourself - where did the aliens hide the bodies I wonder?

Courtney so glad you are enjoying your new job!

Sonja my dear girl - you are the gonna be the Queen of Bust this month if you are not careful!

I'll be honest. I'm still thinking about those adorable chipboard alphas from K&Co. If they are still there tomorrow, I might be bringing them home with a coupon. I was thinking about holding out until next week when the coupon is 50%, but with only one set of letters left, it will never be there. Next week, I'll pick up a pack of ATG tape with my 50% off. I start to panic when I have less than 10 rolls of tape...

Courtney, I'm so happy you love your new job, and congrats on the design team. That's awesome.

Sonja, I knew you couldn't resist the mistables. Those were awesome. Other than F2F, I refuse to look at any of the daily deal sites. I'm determined to be good.

Alissa, you are doing awesome. Keep it up!

Vivian, stop beating your computer up and pack instead. Can't wait to see a few piccies of your new house! Hope the close happens sooner rather than later. I know how frustrating short sales can be. I'm crossing my fingers that everything goes smoothly and quickly for you.

I feel for everyone - I am starting to go through absolutely everything once again - I am planning to move to Britain (hopefully before Easter) and it is so much cheaper to buy new so I am going to be very ruthless about what I am keeping and what goes - I will donate whatever I can. But oh it is hard indeed.

Tammy - Yep... probably will be the Bust Queen this month, though I'm really going to try not to be! SOD is $55 I think... I'll get the invoice this week - we don't count shipping right? If we do, then I bust!

Kelly - STOP gushing about those K&Co alphas and go get them!!! I think I'd panic if I only saw one left... But get them and let us see them so I can oggle them enviously!

I'm impressed with Vivian and Alissa for sticking to their budgets (so far)!
