As mentioned previously (in this post: How To Budget Your Skating, and make it work), there are many many elements which make up a figure skating budget. However, I'm sure you were already aware of that!
Keeping budgets as low as they can go will give you more freedom, and let's face it, who doesn't enjoy not constantly being border-line over-budget?
