Tammy said it best and I just copied her

Welcome to the October 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.

because you love the social aspect of the challenge Julie! Besides it does make you aware anyway.

I am in and my budget needs to be determined yet - probably close to $100 to meet my minimums for SU so I can still go to European Convention in November.

We got the place! They are going to check to see if the girl that has it now will surrender it early so they can clean it to be ready for November 1st. So excited! That being said, my budget for scrappy stuff is going to be ZERO, with the exception of adhesive and postage. We will also be purchasing an Expedit unit, but that probably won't be until after we move into the new place.

yes, yes she is!

Amanda - congrats on getting the place. We were up in Scotland again yesterday - 4 hours one way and 4 hours back - I am soooo sick of travelling right now. But we found a place that we will apply for on monday - not perfect but it gets us there in time for work and we will make it work for 6 months to a year. Amanda I too love the expedit units!
