I am joining .
I have all of the basics so now I buy on want rather than need.
One challenge I will partake in is where I have certain months where I don't buy anything for crafts. I decided I will select 4 different months in 2012 where I don't buy anything . I will post them on the thread as I chose them . I think to have a month where I don't buy anything will help because if I see something I want it will have to wait until next month. Maybe I won't really want it by then.
I have a budget and tracked it but I went over it a few times due to special sales or discounts . So in 2012 I am going back to my budget again and I am resolved to keep it this year .
I am also going to try to not spend all of my monthly budget each month so I have extra money set aside for The Black Friday and Christmas bargains.
