June Income & Expense Report
My June Income & Expense Report is in. It’s ugly….
$18.50 etsy sales
.60 etsy fees
$18.93 L’Ouseau (fabric)
$907.53 The Stitching Post (cuss words here. My machine broke.)
$72.68 JoAnns (more fabric, thread, zipper)
$64.75 Hobby Lobby (lingerie elastic, exacto-kit, gluegun, etc)
Total Spending: $1069.17
Total Earning: $18.50
So….my old sewing machine didn’t survive surgery, and it turns out I’m not a doctor. Who knew?
This is the 6th month of my expense report…and I think I’m done with them. I’m still going to track my spending, but not on the blog. And I’m giving myself a monthly allowance based on my spending this year.
I learned a lot in 6 months; and cut my sewing splurges at least in half; probably more. I’ve stopped making impulse buys, and only go to the fabric store with a specific project or items in mind. I have a good idea of what my minimum spending is for each month. I feel like I’ve accomplished everything I wanted to do.
The only area I’d like to improve in is sewing through my massive hoard of fabric. I really have been using it- my sewing machine gets more mileage than my car. But fabric multiplies! I’m curious, what do you all do with your scraps? And what size of scrap is too small to keep?
