Welcome to the July Budget Challenge! We're here to stay within limits on our scrappy spending!!!
Our illustrious hostess Alissa needs a break so I am taking over for July - you might say some of us are guest hostessing for the summer at least! I just hope we don't have to bust before the month starts as part of the contract...
The rules: List your budget for the month of July that you want to spend on supplies. Then, list the high priority items that you want to buy this month!
The catch: You can spend your money on whatever you want, list or impulse, but you must buy at least half of the items on your wish list!!! For example, if you list 10 items, you have to buy at least 5 of those and have me strike them off your list, etc. Please, make sure to tell me when I am supposed to strike off an item!
Tell us how much you spend throughout the month, and I will keep track of it in this post. 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 enable and tempt us to buy the wonderful items we want....but don't tempt us to bust our budget!!!
TWISTED!!! List at least one thing you are not allowed to buy for the whole month.
