I vote for Cindy10 for president. Good luck Cindy, she's so funny.I'm a bad shopper, I bought a scraplot off of ebay for $800 to add to my my stash. My dh shook his head and I said well you showed me how to use it. Then later on I sold a lot that went for $1,000 and I still have a lot of stuff. Every time I shop at acmoore or micheals instead of telling him how much I sent I tell him how much I saved. But he does get around to asking me how much I spent. I know that I have a problems. But I don't think its that bad, Is it?

I'm not gonna join this because I personally don't want to know how much I spend..but thought I'd share what my hubby said the other day...

We were talking about how I had to finish up my christmas cards and I was leaving yet again to go to a friends house cuz it's just so much more fun with friends...anyway, he said, "I am glad you have this hobby. It's a nice way to keep memories of our family and it doesn't cost anything."

Yeah...talk about hiding stuff! Where does he think I get all the stuff??? My friends houses I guess.....

Okay, I thought I was the queen of hiders until my mom came to visit. I introduced her to the cricut. She had it in her motor home and when we were at Walmart, she bought herself one. She just switched it out with where mine was and my dad kept thinking it was mine. When they were getting ready to leave, she just put it away and didn't tell my dad until a few weeks after they got home.
I can hide my purchases if I shop during the week, or if it is delivered during the week. Dh is gone Mon. - Fri..

I think I spent too much too for the last 2mos. I got a slice and cricut expression and shopped during Thanksgiving sale both online and at M's and J's too.. : ( ... I'm nearly in a bankrupt mode when it comes to my scrapbook funds.

You guys are great. My husband has been asking if a SBSA (Scrapbook Shoppers Anumomous)existed and this is the closest thing I have found to one. At the moment I am trying to figure out how I am going to pay the Nov and Dec credit bill of $815.00 and that was all spent between Oct. 28 and Dec. 5. Of course $436.99 was the pazzles I had been saving up for. I only get a $100 a month for allowance. So I asked my husband if we could raise our allowance for Nov and Dec. and he said if we could afford it. Now I just have to figure out how I am going to pay the difference.

My husband was afraid when we bought our house because it is just a block and a half away from the lss, 4 miles from HL, 5 miles to JoAnns and 5 and 1/2 to Archiver's and Michaels. Now you can see why I need a 12 step program to help me stop shopping.

Purple Princess, if I lived as close as you do to those places, my credit and debit cards would have a meltdown!
