We're here to try to stay within limits on our scrappy/crafty spending, though 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! (Mostly enablers!)
The rules: List your scrappy budget for the whole month. Then list the high priority items that you want to buy this month!
OPTIONAL List something you are NOT allowed to buy all month! (Forty lashes with a piece of wet twine if you cave in on that one!)
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, storage, gifts or shipping, unless you want to. 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!!!
Whatever works for you - a no buy challenge, a do this many layouts before I spend this much - whatever goes as long as there is some aspect of a budget involved. And yes we all bust now and then...no wet noodle flogging here.
Pat - $125 - ROAD TRIP!
Spent $33 = $92 - 6 = 86 - 14 = 72 - 25 = 47 on the Oxides you won't be sorry! Done buying...... close to budget amount.
Sharon - $85 - and not looking
I looked -$4 = $81
$85 - $4 = $81- 20 = 61 - 27 = $34 - BUST big time
Linda - $100 - but really $200 as DH is paying the first $100 - probably busted but got some good deals.....
Shalene - $0 - she spent it last month!! $60 for Cricut machine but technically it is not a bust as we don't count equipment/machines.
Sonja - $80 + GS - lets see how the SMS goes...
CoolCath - $150 - maybe some clothes...
Julie - $300 - New Oxide inks, so cool!!
Tina - $50 - just in case as all class and supplies for the month are paid for. 50 - 10 = 40 - 3 = 37
