Too much spending ?

Lately I have been spending too much money on scrapsupplies. Normally that would be ok (or at least I tell myself that) but now I'm on maternity leave and have to think more about what I spend my money.
Today I ordered two punches from Two peas that I told myself I had to have and I'm waiting for an order from HSS. So as you can see this shopping sickness has hit my hard :-)
When I saw this on Hanna's blog I knew this was just the thing for me. I have way too many paper sheets, embellies etc and I need to use up my stash before I buy more. Phewww this will be hard since I'm longing for some of the new Create Paper, Maya Road, MLS etc.
I have also put into a wooden winebox embellies I have had for some time now and I have challenged myself to use every item in the box before August 31.
So how many creations should I aim for ??? 20, 30, 50 or 70. Let's see last month I created 12 LO's and 4 cards and it was a hard month because Silja's colic was bad so did not have much time to scrap. I should be able to create 15 LO's and 4 cards per month (at least...right !) So my challenge is to create 50 LO's and 12 cards and not buy any new supplies until I reach that goal.
How does that sound ? For every LO I do I'll put 100 ISK in a jar and for every card I create I'll put 50 ISK in the jar. When I reach my target I can use that money to buy some of the new CHA stuff.
I'm starting this challenge today ! Hopefully I will reach my goal number before May 1.
Over and out
