Composition Book Fever

I'm sick. 

35 composition books from Target at @40 cents each. 

Seriously, I do feel bad throat hurts, my forehead hurts...stop ripping off the tape!  Ugh.  And yeah...there's that composition book fever.  35 from Target at 40 cents a piece.  I love composition books.  My goodness!  I never thought I would ever say that.  I finally altered or covered my first one! 

Budgets book.
For good financial health, create and USE a budget. 
 Budget - tell your money where to go! 

Budgets are the key to financial success.
 Budgets are a self check system.  It has to balance.  You should not spend more than you can bring in.  Include your savings in your spending plan.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
Budgets are not meant to be set in stone either.  So if you don't succeed at first, keep trying. 

All crafting supplies were found in my stash...I learned a few things, too.

Next time, I won't cover the binding of the book.  I like to fold the cover back and with the binding covered, I'm not even going to attempt to fold the cover back.  For my first altered composition book cover, I'm pleased.  I like my budget...I like telling my money where to go...I don't like it slipping off somewhere.  It does not have to be complicated...just make a list of what's coming in and what you have to pay out and viola, you have a budget.  Good luck on your budgeting journey! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!
