I have a spy kit swap going on right now and I just tallied up 1 of my 3 partners kits that I've been packing up and the minimum amount to spend on each partner was $50, I've almost tripled that so far and I'm not even done shopping. Geesh!
Okay ladies, you all have problems, lol. Just joking, lol. This is too fun. I thank you for the nomination as Spokesperson Lynnette. Wish I could be Treasury, but we all know that I would spend the money on scrapping goodies, lol.
Oh my do I need to be a member of this group! I belong to a technique club and we meet once a month. We are required to make a minimum purchase of $19 a month, yet I can never manage to leave our meetings without ordering at least $200. Of course that doesn't include the random purchases I make online from Js, sb.com , evil-bay, etc.
I live in Okinawa, Japan so there are none of those great stores everyone goes to to get all their yummy sb stuff. I can't even imagine how bad my addiction is going to become when we finally move back to the states and I can go to a LSS, HL, Ms, Js anytime I want to. My husband should be afraid. Very, very afraid! lol Whereas I am excited. Very, very excited!
Count me in ladies! I've found my new home!
Ok I know that I always over buy for a swap I can't help it!!!! So I'd like to be here with others that share the same addiction! At least most of you dont work at a scrapbook store ...which make is so hard to not spend more YIKES!
I'm one who does far more shopping than cropping . I have bought more stuff that has never been used including the cricut(used only once by my granddaughter). Sometimes I think I have enough stuff to open my own store. Plan to do better in 2009 and actually start using some of the things .
jci, I guess I'm not that bad. I have a huge stocking and I told my dh it would be nice to have this filled up with scrapbook goodies. I showed him the stuff that I want and need. I think he likes me to pend the money bc i'll would be looking at flowers and he is telling me to come and look at the $5 stickers. I shop more than I scrap and I also want to change that for the new years. My dh went into my scraproom yesterday and looked around and he said I know your never going to use all of this stuff and I said maybe not all of it but most, lol we will see.
Call it good or call it bad, but I filled my cart TO THE BRIM today at M's. EVERYTHING was 40% off!
I had a 50% off coupon, but nothing to spend it on, cause everything was on sale!!!
THEN... I spotted the Xyron 500! It is the one toy I want but don't have (excpet the Jukebox, which I'm getting for Christmas. SO... I put EVERY SINGLE THING AWAY, and ONLY BOUGHT THE Xyron 500!!!! WIth 50% off, it was only $25.00!!!! Here's the BEST part: I PAID CASH!!!!
thanks TJCraftyWitch. i've been lurking around the boards for a while now, but finally decided to post when i saw this group.
actually, shipping isn't so bad over here. we have an APO address so it's standard shipping. and like i said, living over here probably saves us money despite having to pay shipping. cuz if i could go to a LSS anytime i wanted it would be a LOT worse!!!
way to go cindy! it's never fun, but sometimes it does feel really good to have a little self control. lol
