Budget and Parts List

So this is where I will keep track of the project expenses.  I am going to do this as inexpensively as possible, as I don’t have a “budget”. That is not to say that I have unlimited funds, quite opposite actually, I will be purchasing parts as needed, when I have the money available.  I watch shows all the time and they all seem to do “Low Budget Builds”, I laugh as what they consider low budget I consider high budget.  I guess, when the parts are given to you by the suppliers it is low budget, however for most of us that will not be happening. All the prices below include tax + shipping to my home in Lake County, Illinois.
