So today, I though I'd draw up a little rulebook to help me keep aware of my own shopping rules for the next few months.
- $20 a month budget with weigh in with purchases. Resetting each month, not carrying over.
- No retail shopping -What this means is: No ebay, etsy, amazon, brick and mortar retail stores, online shops. But Thrift stores, rummage sales, swapping, or gifts are OK.
- Exemption: Underwear.
- Not exempt from budget, but allowed retail purchases: fabric, patterns and sewing materials.
- End date: June 1st, 2011
In addition to my sewing projects, I have a stock pile of items that have not appeared on the blog yet. If the items are not mentioned as being bought on the budget and listed in an update post, then it's safe to assume they were purchased or were gifted in the year 2010 or for my birthday (which I will attempt to do a full post on).
