I ask myself this question:

Would I have bought this today if I wasn’t getting married?

If the answer is no then it goes in the budget. Most of the time my craft expenses end up there. Yes I will use it again because I’m crafty, but no I wouldn’t have spent the money on this item if the wedding wasn’t coming up.

I put all my craft items on the budget, even if I will use it again.

I put everything on my budget…or at least try to. I’m spreading my costs from now till next August so a stamp or pair of scizzors might now get counted in but I’m trying my best to stick with it 🙂

They are for us because we have a “wedding account” at a different bank and when we are buying stuff for wedding, we only use that debit card/check book

I didn’t initially, but I’m thinking I’m going to have to…..

I have not counted things that I will use again… even if they are things that I would not have need to buy without the wedding.  I guess it’s my sneaky way of staying in budget, haha 🙂

 I don’t count them because in the long run you get your money back!

I put them in the budget because I want to know every cent that is being spent.

I am taking the sneaky way and not counting those things, but I am also not keeping very good track of the budget at all.  The major things yes, but the card box I bought because I had a 50% off coupon, didn’t end up in there…..

I was like Mrs. Hot Wings, I added them to the budget so I knew exactly what I spent.
