Four days left in this month and I'm already thinking about spending money in April.

Last month, I did an online survey and was promised a $35 gift card. Well, yesterday, that $35 Visa Debit card came in the mail.

I had most of my January budget left over and I carried it over to February. Then I had a little left over in February and I carried it over to March. This month, I spent it all but $2--meaning I met my targeted $25 per month budget for the first quarter of 2012. (Man how time flies!)

Since my first three months were mostly organizational purchases (Bygel rails & Ribbon Rings) I think I'm going to reward myself in April. I'm sticking with my $25 monthly budget, plus my leftover $2. And I'm rewarding myself with that $35 Visa gift card for being a "good girl" during this first quarter. I plan to spend it all $62 of it on FUN stuff, like dies and embossing folders!
2012 goals: cards 4/52; pages 10/24
