Earned: $2.00 for the 1500 stitches on Bridge.
This month I worked on Elegance of the Orient and Bridge of Wings. I did not make any new starts from stash.

My budget plans for this year are to make as few unnecessary purchases as possible and see how much I can save. Rather than getting bogged down with a year goal I am just going to try for week by week. The idea is that at the beginning of each week I make the decision to not make any unnecessary purchases. This includes craft supplies, books, games, bath products etc. and is just for that current week. I will probably build a reward system in there for when I am successful maybe by putting aside a small amount of money for an end of year splash out on something I have wanted for a while but was too expensive.
The idea behind this is that over the last number of years I have accumulated a very large amount of entertainment items, either books, craft stuff etc. now I want to actually start using these items rather just purchasing more to be added to the pile. I am allowing myself to purchase any supplies that I absolutely need for a particular project but it has to be for something I already have such as a pattern.
I am delighted to have started off the year with a zero cross stitching spend and am hoping to have the same next month. I might even have added on some more earned funds to my budget.
Next up will be a Homemade Goodies Foodie post.
