Welcome to the February 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 January 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 keep track of it as you spend. 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!!!

I have removed a twist as a requirement but you can still indicate one if you so choose.

Oh dear. Um....

I don't really NEED anything, but since I have a $25 order sitting in my cart, and since the local Michaels is having a store closing sale this month...and since I'm having to stretch my stash to find some products for my Paper Mixing Bowl project for February.

I think I'd better put something in the pile.

Say ... $150. That's about $30 a week, which is about right for me.

I'm in. Budget TBD. I think the HL is opening in Duluth this month.

Pat, your local Michaels is closing? Oh no!

Well, the one CLOSEST to me is closing - but it's just a mile down the road from a huge Hobby Lobby, so it's been struggling to compete in that market share for a while. It's not a big surprise.

There are at least 3 other Michaels that I can think of off the top of my head - they're farther away, but they're bigger. And the HL is healthy, so it's not a HUGE inconvenience - with the exception that I'm boycotting HL until they get their health insurance priorities straightened out.

I'd love to join this challenge! Been a member since 2005 but just recently got really active on here. Joined a couple of challenges and thought this challenge would be fitting too.
I have a very small budget of maybe $25 and even that is a lot. Just recently unemployed so don't have anything coming in yet. Of course, I have enough stuff to last me for probably years.
I don't have a wishlist yet but am working on one. I love the 8x8 Storybook albums by Doodlebug Designs. The are 2-ring binders in very fun colors. I got mine at my local Hobby Lobby and it was marked down. It also came with 10 page protectors (9 regular page protectors and 1 in the receipe page protector which has smaller slots for receipe cards, etc.). I'm using the album for my 2013 calendar pages and love it!

Amy

Welcome ladies.
This is very informal-tell us your budget and how you spend it, then when (I mean IF) you bust-LOL

Okay, after careful thought, here's what I have for this month:

Budget: $75 (Including $45 in Expo credit)
Wishlist: modeling paste, EP Photo Freedom papers, Glue Arts tape refill, Pink Paislee Artisan Collection circles, hearts and stars, and PP snowflake chipboards and photo tabs, masks/templates (various), BoBunny Powder Mountain paper pad and embellies, We R Memory Keepers Tab punch and Albums Made Easy cards and flush sheet protectors, Simple Stories Take a Hike and Awesome papers, embellies and SNAP alphas, Sizzix BG and TH dies, new Prima metal trinkets, must-have wood and chipboard embellies
TWIST: Absolutely NO other paper (including cardstock), flowers, embellies, trims, tools or inks! No Cricut Carts either! I need NOTHING!

Basically this is my shopping list for Expo tomorrow... LOL! I did include adhesive because it is part of my budget this month and I will get that modeling paste! If not tomorrow at the next crop!

Still no idea for budget for me. I'll be digging through my Cities goodies today and seeing what I need to supplement with. DH saw the $70 deduction on the bank account at the lss, so I figure I better keep this month's spending down. Maybe...
