Just tallied my receipts for January and I spent $28.88. That included postage to mail a swap package (and I am no longer joining swaps), an adhesive refill to put in the swap package, and an Inkadinkadoo Sympathy Stamp set (I had none and already used it for a sample VSN card). I also have a receipt for $2.47 that says "SB Coin-Wht" that I put in the box and I'll be darned if I can remember what it was for (the receipt is from Walmart not a specific craft store). This is more than my "use my stash" commitment BUT oh well. I used or gave away everything I bought.
I will be placing two SU orders between now and the end of February (one for a gal friend who I order from each quarter to help her make her minimum and one for the stamper's club I joined so I could hostess once a year) so my February budget will be large but.... we do what we have to do. I plan on stocking up on cardstock which should last me through the year at a minimum.
