Welcome to the June BUDGET Challenge!
We're here to stay within limits on our scrappy spending!!! (Or try to...)

We take turns hosting (whomever has time that particular month) as it gets a bit chaotic sometimes! We are a chatting bunch of savers and enablers!

The rules: List your scrappy budget for the whole month of June that you would like 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, wishlist 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.

Note: I have already listed the players from last month - but please feel free to join in at any time!

I'm in this month. I have to think of a budget and what I want. DH spent $125 on his hobby last month, so I can spend that much, but we're moving and need to save $ for that and a new place. Oh, the responsibilities of being an adult!

Fearless is much better than idiotic Pat and I love your wishlist of impulse buying - I think we should all allow ourselves that from time to time.

Sonja (I kinda added a caveat to your Twist since you had papers in your wishlist - so I am not confused).

So I am going to live it up now HAHAHA!!

Well yesterday I sucked it up and bought the MS PATP set I wanted on Amazon. No tax or shipping, so it's more than what I wanted to pay, but not as bad as it could have been. Still kind of undecided about this month, but I know a few things I need/want. (yes, I actually do need some stuff)

Budget: $75

Wish: Silhouette mat, Silhouette blade, Perfect Pearls pigment powders, Spellbinders

Twist: No embellishments that aren't needed to COMPLETE a page.


That's it for now. I can't seem to think of anything. I haven't touched anything in my room (except stuff I needed to make for class samples) since I came home. My mojo got lost in Europe.
I have loads of stuff on my to do list. Maybe I need the Banana Goal Bowl back...

LOL, thanks Tammy! yeah, that's an important caveat there... I am determined not to bust this month and I'm sure I won't in the first couple weeks at least...

Courtney - Booo on PA!! Well, I suppose it's not that big a deal if you don't plan to go back to work after the baby. Yeah... scrappy budget is going ddddoooooowwwwwwnnnnhill the closer this baby gets!

That's okay, Kelly, sometimes we have to pay for what we really want!

Drat, starting to feel the cold migrate to my sinuses... And I need to be healthy this weekend to do some organizing and cleaning! I don't have time to be sick!!

I splurged a wee bit in May. Still waiting for online Js order. Can't decide on a budget because my shopping appetite is satiated for now...
