OK I did say that I was on a spending diet (budget) until Tomorrow (payday thursday) but I couldnt resist. The stamps are Doodlebug (50% off coupon), I spend $4.99 a piece. The both flower packs are Recollections $4.99 with 50% off. The butterflies are 20 a pack for $1. All from M's. I spent under $16 bucks.

You only broke the spending diet by one day, so I dont think it counts.

I really like the label stamps on the left!

Nice low budget haul I almost bought those chipboards, but I didn't know what I'd do with them. Curious to see what you do!

And I'm glad it's not just me whonha bright shiny object syndrome. something tells me we would not be very good at helping each other restrain in craft stores!

I took my 50% Jo's coupon and 40%HL to Jo's yesterday. I intended to buy one spellbinder die and a TH die and some spray adhesive. Well I came across a package of Spellbinder dies that had four sets of dies (not 4 dies, but 4 sets of nesting dies in it.) It didn't have a bar code nor a price, but I put it in my cart anyway. I couldn't use my coupons on the other dies, because they were already on sale. When I got to the checkout, I had the salesperson check on the price of the 4-pack. It had been $80 but was on clearance for $40. I asked her if I could use the coupon. She said she could try. Guess what, it worked. I got it for $20 - or if broken down $5 a set for the spellbinders dies.

My "weekly" TM run got me TH fragment (glass tiles) for $4 (regularly $10 and a package of grunge 12 x 12 paper for $1.49.

Nice haul!

Gawd...isn't it hard to NOT buy scrappy stuff? I said I wasn't going to buy anything til May-was gonna go to the scrapbook expo. So what do I do? Buy a Cricut Imagine. I had to though...I bought an Imagine cart 2 months ago. Couldn't use it cause I didn't have a Cricut Imagine lol

I'm this close to knocking down the wall between my scraproom and my sons bedroom (he moved to Vegas 2 years ago) I need more room!!

I have seen those sets at my J's. I found it weird that they don't keep them in the sb section or even with the rest of the Spellbinders. At my J's, they're on a turning display on the other side of the store. I can't believe you got one for $20!!! I have never tried to buy any because I have most of the ones they offer in the 4 packs, but at that price, it'd be crazy to pass up. I could get it as a gift or use as a RAK on my blog. I guess it's a good thing I won't have the chance to go to J's for a few days or my wallet would take another hit! LOL

I saw some new cling rubber stamps (Hampton Arts) for $2.99 each. Among those they have a plethora of new items (alot 50% off). I hope they have them in your local stores. I am soooooo excited. Plus I have a 20% off regular price coupon that I got from the May/June magazine.

Mia, love those new flowers. I had to put blinders on when I passed them so I wouldn't stop and shop.
LesleyC I bought 2 of those chipboard packets and am totally in love with them. They are already embossed so all I did was paint the butterflies with pink acrylic and then used TH vintage photo and they came out looking awesome. They even feel good! Take a look at my post today on my blog (cigar box) if you want to see what a great buy they were!!

where are these butterflies? $1 bin?

The nursery was done in bugs and butterfly theme (universally done for my boys and hopefully future girl) and this would be perfect for the LO!!! Thanks mia for sharing and theellenbee for the examples!

I did not find the butterflies, but I found flourish like ones and birds. The Ms lady said they will get more and I gave my mom the task to look for me until I am in town again. But thanks for the ofter theellenbee (can I assume your name is Ellen? Is it OK to call you that?)

We did not have the new stamps either... plus they took away half the TH racks... along with a few inks I did not buy yet... phooey.

Where do you live Mia? You always seem to have the cool stuff...

Nice hauls everyone. I have to not shop and finish the project I am doing. But, I'll be on the lookout for all these goodies!
