I am not buying sale items or feeling I need to use coupons.
But when I saw the new shutters for the Memory Box Madison windows ( that I have) I just had to have them. I love the Madison Window.
Impulsive purchase maybe, but they are so perfect with the window die

Then I saw the grass die from MFT and it is the best grass die or punch I have seen. So I order that . It looks great with my fence die.
I have MS grass punch and it is too small for my liking

I am seeing things that enhance what I already have that make them more versatile .
I didn't plan not spending in March since I just got back to my Calligraphy and had no ink and my nibs had gotten rusty from being in storage for 30 years.
I had to buy ink and nibs .
I have a budget and in January and February I kept to it. I just wanted to try to go an entire month and not buy anything.
Looking at what I spent last year on crafts I am going to trim that way back. Last year I chose to buy craft items rather than some other things I should have bought. My sofa is 25 years old. It doesn't have stains or holes , but it is starting to look shabby. It needs to be replaced.

I think saving for the sofa will be my plan
