Budgeting – Question of the Day
In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s January. I don’t know what it is about the New Year rolling in, but I always look at my monthly budget in January so I can see how far outside my means I am living. Let me tell you folks, I lived quite large in 2009. *picking self up off the floor*
Sheesh! The main impetus for this year’s budgetary attention was to see how much fabric I could fit squeeze into the budget. It turns out I can fit about $0.00. That’s really unfortunate, because I just spent about $60 dollars I apparently don’t have on some from Fabric.com. 🙁
Seriously though, I would be interested in hearing how the rest of you sewists come up with a sewing budget for yourselves. Please leave me a comment and share your thoughts on this topic. While you do that, I am going to cry into my $0.10 cent cup of french press coffee that I make at work to save money while saving myself from the dreck they call coffee in the office pantry. And yes, I took the time to figure out how much each cup of coffee cost me. Doesn’t everyone do that???
Oh and BTW, I now consider “budgeting” a four letter word.
