I don't know if this is doing me any good as I am still spending money.  But I do get to see how much I am stitching verses what I am spending. Which is beneficiary. So far, I'm staying ahead of my own game.
Happy stitching!

Great report! I think it's okay to be spending since you're also finishing. My problem is I'm still spending but not finishing.

You are right, all these earned dollars are a real invitation to buy more than just the monthly budget, lol. But on the other hand these dollars are earned by stitching things from stash. So, why not spend them? Lol.
