Welcome to the July 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. 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.

Interesting thread. I am really in a very tight budget so I am only spending money for mailing scrapbook.com swaps. My only buy will be adhesive as needed and only with coupons! I must stay under $100.00!

I haven't even set a budget or wishlist yet, and I've already spent $31. How did that happen?

This is fun! I need to figure out what I really need and figure out a budget so I can join! I'll think about it over the weekend while we are camping!

Well Tammy, it all started with this one piece of paper. I have this Smash book I'm not at all crazy about, and I decided to turn it into something like an art journal. A bucket list art journal of the things I've already completed and the things I still want to do. I covered the front with paper I loved and forgot about it. Sunday I went to cover the back and realized I did not have any more of that paper. Oh the horrors! This paper is super old Webster's Pages that I got in their warehouse box 2 years ago. I feared I wouldn't find anymore, but I searched and found the last pieces in the universe at the Fruit Site. I couldn't pay $5 in shipping for 2 sheets of paper could I? I felt obligated to toss a few more things in my cart. Then I got to take 20% off of the total with a coupon, and I cashed in my cherries and got another $5 off, so not too terribly bad, right? At least that is what I'm telling myself.

and an announcement - our dear sweet Courtney and her hubby Dom are now the proud parents of a healthy baby girl! No word on a name but I am sure Courtney will now have new reasons to justify her budget busting! (and who would blame her)
