i went to Michael's one day and spent $200 on ribbon and stamps and i got most of it from the clearance bins also i can barely pay my rent but i bought jemax cubes again at micheals cause they were on sale but have to hide them in my trunk and think up a story after xmas to explain how i got them.....so i'm totally in

PS = i bought a cricut cart cause it was on sale...i don't have a cricut





OH GOD THAT'S BAD!!! LOL



ya i know hey....like most have said i like shopping just as much as i like scrapping and then i don't wanna use the new stuff cuz it's tooo pretty



Me too, I do that with paper! Too pretty to use. Or I save it for "that" album (?) and you know what happens? I forget I have it. In fact, I just found some GREAT paper that I bought a couple years ago and had put away for my dd's baby/childhood album. Just used it for a swap.

But my favorite story on this thread so far is Lilscrappy22's above about buying a cricut cartridge without owning a cricut Now that there's a true scrapbook-supply-buying addict. By the way, I have a cricut. Which cartridge did ya buy?

I thought I had a shopping problem until I read this thread. My daughters need to read this so that they can see that I'm not as bad as they think I am. My DH doesn't have the slightest idea about scrap shopping -- I handle the checkbook!! My daughters, on the other hand, are always reminding me of the economy and my spending!

When I started scrapping, I went to ACM and spent over $500 before I ever made one LO! Over the years I've spent ALOT -- sometimes foolishly, but I am now a very careful shopper. I only buy if it's on sale or if I have a 40% or 50% coupon. I've also joined the No Less Than 25 challenge where I can only shop after i complete 25 LOs. so far so good -- I'm finishing up my 4th round.

It's soooo hard to refrain though, and I have a relapse every so often -- sometimes hundreds of dollars worth of a relapse!!

I bought $7 worth of stuff at a lss today. I bought two metallic pens and a few sheets of paper at 75% off. The cost would have been more than that but I sold a couple of things at the garage sale they had today.

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.....






LMBO!!!! Now that is funny!

Sign me up. I think it is a requirement that you must use your 40% joann's coupon every week, even if I don't need anything, I stock up on adhesive.

I went to M's today because I went to M's last week twice and aqquired (2) 40% off Coupons . Today I dragged my dh into the store with me so that I could use both of them and the cashier practically scolded me because right after I made a purchase and used one of the Coupons my dh was right behind me and used the other one (with the same bank card). LOL She only gave me 1 40% coupon this time. Shucks! I thought I was going to get my 2 again.
