Okay, I am now officially in, with a .sig line and everything!
In addition to the more standard things that "earn" for this challenge, I included a few others:
Using only paper from scrap pile on project: $1
Using items from stash: $.25 per item type*
Recycling/Upcycling an item: $.50 to $2.00**
Finish CCC cards for month: $1
Finish 1 month of Card a Day project (with blog posts): $5
Spend at least 30 min cleaning out/reorganizing craft supplies: $1
Donate/give away a box or bag of stuff from house (craft or non-craft): $2
Plus I am doing $1 for 30 min of exercise and $1 per pound lost; we'll see how that goes, lol!
I started my tally as of 1/8.
*I have an idiosyncratic way of deciding what counts for this--basically it is if I use something I have looked at and felt guilty for not using. Like I didn't count metal-colored brads because I use them all the time, but I do count eyelets because I bought lots and then started using brads all the time instead! Basically, I don't count if it is something I would use/use up without consciously trying to use my stash, if that makes sense.
**I give myself $.50 for something like a tag or a piece of paper from a junk mail envelope or such. $1 for something small like a box. $2 is for making a stamp out of something recycled like a jar lid or something that can be used repeatedly (and $.50 for subsequent uses of it).
