It's true, at the beginning of this Stitch from Stash journey I completely freaked out. Panic set in. A small, evil part of me spitefully took over and forced me to spend, spend, spend. January I spent $71.59, however $40 was taken off because of SKULL (thank goodness), but that still left me with of $31.59.
Gads, now we are into February. I was almost shamed into no spending and then the Splurge day hit and I did alright there. I had $100 that I could go nutty on and didn't. I only spent $39.65.......at first. AFTER the Splurge day left, I was going through my coming up projects and thought I should "research" the fabrics and such that I would need to complete the patterns on hand. That led to a hideous $62.39 expenditure. The best part of that is my TW Stitchers will benefit from the $1.29 I spent on beads. You may not think that is great but I'll tell you when I got the beads I realized I already had a monster baggie of them so why not share?
Where was I? Oh yes, so $31.59 - $25.00 = $6.59 carryover into February. $62.39 + $6.59 = $68.98 - $25.00 = $43.98 carryover into March. March expenditure was $0.00. $43.98 - $25.00 = $18.98 carryover for April. IF I can be good, I will have a + $6.50 credit for April. I hope I have all this math right. I'm pretty sure Mel will tell me.
In the meantime, the job hunt is progressing nicely. Tomorrow is Job Fair, so that will be nice. I know I have two months until I'm laid off, but getting busy right now should work in my favor....or at least I'd like to think so. I'm worried about some of my co-workers more than myself, but if they stay motivated they should be alright. I really hope so.
So between applying for jobs, there is STITCHING. That eternal Happy Place. Please join me there!
Until next time....just keep stitching, just keep stitching....
