Pat..that is great advice....and so so true!!

Sonja, Yes Baby Steps LOL I think I got like 4 of each sheet LOL...I am currently going through the overly bloated and look 6 months pregnant stage and im not liking it even a little bit LOL..At this rate its a good thing I am going away because my coworkers would notice immediately LOL.

Other than that I feel pretty good...knock on wood no nausea yet...crossing my fingers and toes that stays away....

Tonight is laundry and packing for our trip....I need this trip so badly...so so excited.

Go to the discount stores, Courtney! I lived in Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshall's plus-size sections for most of my pregnancy! And occassionally I found maternity stuff there too! The preggo stuff is WAY overpriced!

Too bad u r leaving so soon... I have a pair of maternity shorts I could send ya! Want me to FedEx them to your hotel??

And Tammy's right... wait till you actually are 6 months pregnant! Dont' worry, your DH still thinks you're beautiful! There were days I felt like I looked 6 months preggo and others that I didn't look pregnant at all (for the first few months anyway!)

Yes, my doctor said it was normal...Thanks hun you are so so sweet...The preggo clothes are crazy expensive....I have packed 5 pairs of yoga capri's at least i will be comfy LOL.....I am not spending $45 for a pair of maternity jeans, I don't even spend that on my normal jeans.

I told DH that we should start a maternity consignment shop...I mean how much do you wear the stuff!! LOL

Ok Rant over....LOL

Oh I TOTALLY agree!!! They are way too overpriced! I did break down and spent $30 on a pair of brown dress pants - but ONLY because I couldn't find brown anywhere in the discount stores and needed for work!

I will say... maternity clothes are actually pretty comfortable! I'm still wearing some of mine, but only out of habit, they really don't fit me anymore. And SO true! You really do only wear them for about 5-6 months anyway so the cost is sooo high! I'm sure there are consignment shops out there (there are for baby stuff), but if there isn't one in your area, talk about a BIG opportunity! LOL

I have come to the conclusion that this forum should not be about how much money we are NOT going to spend, but to be accountable for what we DO spend.

I went to a crop last night.

I bought 3 sheets of paper, a sheet of cardstock, and a yard of burlap ribbon. $6.

Then today, I bought a jar of black flower soft. $5

I also bought a couple of bottles of 3-in-1 adhesive, but I was OUT so that doesn't count.

That's a total of $11 for the past two days.

And I was going to go the whole month without spending.

BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

LOL, Pat, I'm right besides you. Went to work and saw a Martha Stewart PATP (spiders) tossed in a basket with a ton of Halloween junk. Scanned it and it was on sale from $24.99 to $4 something. I do not need a spider PATP set, but I also had a 25% off coupon for sale items. I got the set for $3.50. Then I picked up two MME 6x6 pads that were on sale plus the $25% off. I think I spent about $9. There goes my twist of no paper. I also bought blades for my trimmer, but I don't count trimmer blades in my budget. Can't create if I can't cut. Oh well, at least I haven't busted.

Budget: $75-$9=$66

Wish: HFC Delicate Asters stamp and die

Twist: No paper, no flowers, no leaves, no embellishments, no ribbon, no punches, I need nothing. Paper twist is blown.

umm yes Kelly you did blow your twist on No paper but also on No Punches.

Now as much as I love that delicte asters stamp and die - I am goign to give you the benefit of saying since technically it is only used to create flowers and leaves then it doesn't count in your twist! LOL see how generous I am feeling.

I loved Winter Frost so much I didn't even buy it cause I knew I wouldn't cut into it. But surely Miss Sonja you have some skiing pics for this collection that you haven't scrapped yet.

if i can still join in, i am just getting back to scrappin' so would love to join this. I have only $50 I can spend between now and the rest of the month and am in need of EVERYTHING. When we moved, most of my stash got ruined, so it's almost like starting over! I'll be hitting up michaels and joanes as well as hobby lobby come friday and am praying for some great deals not only on paper but on embellies as well

I wasn't including this in my budget, but last week, I got 2 colorbok 50 page stacks for $5 each! They are beautiful and I love them!
