This looks like a good incentive for me! I just got to place some nice orders with Verve and My Favorite Things with my Christmas money, so I have a lot of new stamps and dies I'm going to need to use. Supplies I need right now are adhesive, kraft paper, and a few copic refills for markers I use all the time.
I need to spend as little as possible, so I'm going to set my budget at $15.00 in case I can get any of those things on sale this month. Then I'll plan to put any extra that I don't spend in my receipt envelope to save for another month.
My worst enabling comes from seeing the Verve and MFT releases. Occasionally, though, I win a set or a gift voucher during release weeks, or for playing along with challenges, which is nice. I'd like to have a little money saved to place an occasional order this year. I'd even like to know which month I'm planning on placing it! It would be easier to wait if I know my wish list won't have to wait forever.
