Welcome to the March 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 March. 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 the twist as a requirement but you can still indicate one if you so choose.

I did well last month and did not bust.

I'm excited about that!

I'm going to set a $100 budget this month, but I don't expect to spend it all. I'm not really in need of anything - or at least not until I see something that I might have to have because I saw it on something pretty!

I'm an impulse shopper. Never going to buy another Cricut cartridge as long as I live.

Well for good measure I busted some more last night JUST so I could avoid busting on the first of the month... I resisted the Scraputante order, but I did get my crop chocolate!

And now sb.com has 20% off EP and I NEEEEEED to stock up on the EP kits that I have...

heidiDH traded me $10 in M's goodies for my using my lunch break to go pick up his meds at his doctors. It was win-win and I got to watch a little of the horses practicing at Santa Anita (you can see the track from the doc's office), so I think I made out pretty well! hehehe

And I stayed under his $10 budget which was REALLY hard! I had the 50% off coupon and they had the gelatos (finally), but they only had blues and reds and I have both of those. They also had the watercolor pencils on clearance, but I'd rather get the full pack of 48 colors instead of one pack of 6 of the same color. I did drool over all the Heidi Swapp stuff they had in and used the 50% off on the 12x12 magic paper and a couple clearance washi tapes. Not bad for half an hour of agonizing indecision...

walked downtown and joined the gym and then walked down further to Hobby Craft (kinda like Mikes) and spent $30 but I did get 2 albums (sucky ones but beggars can't be choosers) and a couple of thickers that were on sale and some polar bear card blanks - gonna use them on the girls Christmas pages from 2011. No Paper!

Budget: $50-$30=$20
Wishlist: albums, xyron x, paper organizers

I'm back!We went on a Carribean cruise to Grand Turk, Ocho Rios Jamaica, and Nassau Bahamas. Also spent a few nights in Tampa. Had a wonderful time!

Thanks Kelly for starting this month's thread.

My budget is zero, ZERO, zero! We spent more on vacation than planned and came home to medical bills we didn't expect, along with a few other things. My room is overflowing and I need nothing so this month zero.
