You do spend money. You don't spend money. You spend the money you're "allowed" to spend. You spend more than you're allowed to spend. You "buy" yourself extra money by stitching. You earn it but you don't buy anything with that extra money.
Maybe you're keeping track for yourself. Good for you. That's not that interesting to me as a reader.
One of the things I can't tell from reading most of these Stitch from Stash posts is how much money you have. I don't know your fiscal budget; how much money you make; how much you owe your creditors. No idea. These reports are completely out of context.
I also don't know what kind of person you are. If you're parsimonious, then I am completely unimpressed by your ability to not spend money. Seriously, if you're not spending money on anything. what's one more thing not to spend on? If you're completely loaded, who cares if you keep your spending below $25 per month? It's not like you can't let loose on every other kind of spending.
Have you had to take control because you have some kind of compulsive spending problem? Because that, I want to read about.
You know what? If you were starving your children so you could buy the whole collection of Belle Soie, I might read your update. But if you're not spending money again this month? Who cares? I don't spend money on cross-stitching most months.
Good luck to you with your record keeping. But post after post after post of "spent $x on this" bores me. And I'm not reading it.
