February Budget - Just Made It or did I Break it??

February Budget
'Cuse My French

I broke the bloody hell out of the bank!!

It has taken me a few extra weeks to get my budget post up for February because I knew I busted the bank wide open...I just wasn't ready to share yet! LOL

I couldn't really be mad at myself though.  Even though I have set myself to stay on budget, some things just can't be helped. As every knows sewing IS an EXPENSIVE career or hobby in my case.  It is also an investment.  So with that said I will show you how I busted the month of February, but it was a one time purchase!

February 4, 2015
Pack of Sharp Sewing Needles = $1.27

February 6, 2015
Joann Fabrics:
(7) McCalls Patterns = $13.93
(1) Simplicity Pattern = $3.99
(1) Vogue Pattern = $4.99
3 yd of Knit Fabric = $10.77
3 yd of Knit Fabric = $8.98
(2) Spools of Thread = $4.27
2¼ Cheetah Print Fleece = $17.04

February 9, 2015
Serger = $190.53

February 13, 2015
(8) Spools of Serger Thread B&W = $19.76

February 22, 2015
Affordable Fabrics:
1 yd of Canvas = $2.99
1 yd of Lining =$ 2.99
3 yd of Crepe Fabric = $8.97

Budget Allowance = $100.00
Total Amount Spent w/o Tax included = $290.48
Remaining in Budget = -$190.48

You see in red where I blew the bank wide open!!  But a serger is an investment in my hobby or maybe career later on in life. (Who Knows).  What makes me laugh the most is, if I didn't buy the serger, but I still but the serger thread in hopes of having a serger... my total for the month would have been $99.95!!!

Hopefully in March I do much better. The big purchase was soooo worth it though!! Will be posting a button up shirt I made serging my seams! 

Until Next Time!!
