Welcome to the September 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.

I spent a little money yesterday (with September funds) and got a new album (needed) and a few fun things from As- clearance sale! The fun things in included stamps (shocker), journaling tabs that work/look like post its, and a honeycomb embossing folder. I picked up some paper too but put it all back because I just don't need it. Not like I need stamps. I always need stamps. Stamps and shoes.

I had my fun and got a good deal on some stamps. I don't NEED anything else so I'm down to $0. Here we go...

oh stamps are always good! I actually ALMOST bought a Scotland stamp but it would have cost me $15 and I just couldn't justify that for one stamp (YET)

Wishlist: Cricut club, Sizzix Bigz die accordian flip 3-D

My husband and I are starting an online site and we're hoping to get a retail store front open in the next few months. So far I have spent about $400.

Me personally, I don't plan on anymore than $50 on supplies and crops.

Count me in. My friend and I are headed to ScrapFest in a few weeks, so I'm gonna set a little higher budget this month. Going to try to finish organizing my craft area this week so I can figure out what I really "need." Although if I can't tell you right now what I need, I probably don't need it. haha. I am going to set a budget of $400 for September.

New on this challenge. I went over my budget by a lot the past couple of months. This month I am setting a budget of $180. Not sure what I need yet.

I'd like to join. Scrapbook supplies have been a big strain on my budget and I'd like to rein myself in a bit.

Welcome Lynne! Keeping track is a big way to contain your spending. Making a plan for your wish list is also a good way to keep it in control. There is always room for spontaneous purchases but think about what projects you want to do this month and then what supplies you will need...experience talking here.

Wow... three days in and Alissa is already busted?? I've suddenly got the feeling of deja vu...

Couldn't resist, Alissa, sorry!

As always... I want Julie's and Amanda's budgets, but have to settle for my own pathetic one...

I'm hoarding my $$$ until Expo in October so this month will be light.... and I'm determined to shop my stash as much as possible!!

Budget: $50
Wislist: Cricut December 25 Xmas Cart, BOY punches, AC Woodables, photo storage boxes, new album

Well in that case, Tammy... *puffing up flat chest*
I'll do my best!

(I was about to come on here and say I'm going to cave on the Peachy deal today... five sets of BG brads for $10! Ach... the pressure....)
