In September I established my first ever craft budget and while I was extremely happy with my September budget, my October budget went a little over, but I'm not terribly upset with myself because it was one single purchase that put me over budget, and, it was a worthwhile investment piece.
Here is my final October budget (with a monthly spending limit of $250). I began the month of October with an excess from the September budget (hence the $443.47) to start off this month:
Yes, as you can see, I went over budget by $55.53. Last month when I registered for this Creative Art Retreat on the Cape, I knew that the registration for both days would consume my entire October budget, so I was sure to leave some extra money in my September budget (which I did). However, I went slightly over budget when I made the ultimate decision to purchase a Brother Scan & Cut 2 electronic cutting machine. But, this machine is a one-time investment piece for my business that will save significant time and money in the future.
