Always be on the lookout... you would be surprised where you can find some goodies. I even found some at a kitchen store before. :)I used to find good prices at Big Lots. But I find recently they have gone up on there prices. I have bought punches from TJ Maxx and use them all the time. Good luck have fun searching.

Oops, that's what I get for not reading all the comments.
I've found the best way to save money is to only buy supplies for the projects I'm working on. I no longer buy because something is pretty and I *might* need it someday. If I don't have a use for it now, I don't get it. The only thing I buy on a regular basis is adhesive.
