Welcome to the August BUDGET Challenge!
We're here to stay within limits on our scrappy spending!!! (Or try to...) We have plenty of enabling going on
We take turns hosting (whomever has time that particular month) as it gets a bit chaotic sometimes! We are a chatty bunch of savers and enablers!
The rules: List your scrappy budget for the whole month of August that you would like to spend on supplies. Then, list the high priority items that you want to buy this month!
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 round to the nearest dollar value
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!
