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. 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.

ummm wow Julie (and I think I see some BG Oliver elements there - my absolute fave).

(I think we need a new challenge - who has the biggest spend in a month - wowzers - just envious here). Now make something quick and share it here please - you just have so many gorgeous goodies.

Julie, you do realize this a budget challenge, right?

I think I busted too. Heck, I haven't even set a budget yet and think I busted. Yesterday was Art Unraveled and there was some really cool, eclectic stuff there that you can't find here, Ms, Js, HL, so I had to buy it right? I'll have to total my purchases later, but my budget was supposed to be $100. I'm going to give myself $30 to last the rest of the month.

Tammy, I haven't seen the new SU stuff yet. I'm scared to look!

Tina, the new CTMH cart is freaking amazing.

yes I too am loving the new CTMH stuff but they don't sell it here!

There is some stuff in SU I love Kelly and some that makes me go right okay - not happening. But there is something for everyone.

HOW did I miss this challenge??? And WHY is Julie already in the hole $350?! It wasn't even a week Julie!!

BTW, LOVE the BG Oliver kit! I don't have the element stickers so if you feel the need to send 'em my way, by all means!

My budget should be $0, but again, that's unrealistic since I already spent $23 on liquidation goodies at scrapbuck.com!
AAAAnnnnddd, I just got an email that Expo tix are going on sale in 10 days (sigh). I checked out the workshops and there are a few I am eyeing... so have to build that into my budget too...

Budget: $100
Wishlist: BOY punches (all mine are girlie!), BB KeyLime set, AC Wood pieces, When I was a Kid Cartridge, Expo Workshop, anything I can't resist!

NOW... for what I bought... LOL

FYI Scrapbuck.com is liquidating their stock as they are closing! They have lots of old BG (including Oliver and Olivia, Tammy!!) all around $0.19-0.27 each and free US shipping over $20. For the $23 I spent, I got 90 items!!!! Not to enable, but that's kinda a no-brainer!

I got BG Eerie, Oliver, Olivia, Origins, Oxford, Max & Whiskers, Indie Bloom, Jovial, and Hello Lucious papers as well as some letter rub ons and chippies, giant Bazzill brads and a few other papers from LYB, K&Co and FP!

I love to order from scrapbuck.com. I read somewhere they are hoping to be bought out and reopen. Fingers crossed!!
