I probably spent more than I planned in 2011 but I can account for every penny and I know what I bought and why. Very few things have not been used and I regret very little of my purchases. 2012 should be better as each day I get better about staying out of the stores and tossing catalogs out unread. I am on a strict budget and I think I would like to spend more on some new clothes and less on crafting stuff for a few months. I am considering dropping as an SU! demo and that would certainly free up some money as I am, sadly, pretty much my only customer right now and it does add up!
