Spent $18 at M's today! Don't know if it all counts, but I got two of those photo storage boxes cuz they were only $2 each! Also got a few blingy words out of the $1 bin, a clearance Bead Landing item and a clearance EK punch for $8. I did get a floral bouquet, but it's for decorating the crystal vase in my guest bathroom so that doesn't count! That 25% off was a good coupon, though it didn't count towards my clearance items...

WAHOOEY congrats Alissa, you are on fire lately!!

I may or may not have played hookie today....and I may or may not have gone to Kellys to scrap LOL....but I DID NOT spend any money...LOL and I didnt forget my trimmer this time!!

I did however go to J's and buy a back up trimmer because I always have brain cramps when it comes to that thing..I had a 50% off coupon so it was only $15.00. I also went to AC Moore and spent $21 on 3 packages of tim holtz embossing folders...they were 40% off each..even the new bubble wrap and honeycomb one...then I went to M's and only spent $24 but a large part of that was for my rotating carousel for my scrappy desk...I got a large roll of burlap and some adhesive backed canvas which seemed like fun....

Off to a business association board meeting...i will possibly have a much needed nap LOL

Oh and I may or may not have walked over to Office Depot and got a $10 zippered 3-ring binder to store my acrylic stamps in... rather than paying $35 for a TH one! I haveta count that, don't I?

Hello ladies! I'm going to try and be more active this month. I was thinking about my budget and was going to go with $20. I walked into Tuesday Morning, and they had 5 $10 Cosmo Cricket scrapbooking kits! I got Salt Air, Social Club, Upycle, Clementine, and Dear Mr. Claus. So, I'm busted, or I'm going to have to redo the budget and wishlist. Ideas ladies and leader?

lol did you actually communicate your budget yet?

And I may or may not have understood that in one sentence Courtney didn't spend money (at Kelly's which is a miracle) and then promptly went elsewhere and spent money. Methinks the newest inventory is not yet in inventory at Kelly's!

Sonja - I may be outvoted on the $10 zipper binder!! If it were solely up to me . . . To store all of our scrap candy costs just as much or more (sometimes) as the candy itself.

But, it's not like I'm going to reach thru the computer and

Katie - maybe we should pretend your very first post didn't happen! LOL It will be a VERY long month if you bust before you even officially post on here.

acrylics in SU DVD cases - they sell them separately and my woods ones are stored in their own cases. I actually changed to keep 2 sets of SU acrylic stamps in one DVD so had extra for some of my non SU stamps and some of the tiny ones I keep in trading card binder sheets (you know the ones with 9 slots) and so I have a binder for those and some other things like sketches and templates I use

OK I really need to get my spending under control. I needed to quit collection and start using. My budget (man I hate that word) $20.00 bc I really don't needed anything, but you know how that goes and my twist is NO NO Cricut stuff. Now to just stay off E-bay and I should be ok lol

I've tried the folder, the acrylic CD cases and ended up liking the larger ones in their origonal packaging in a baskets best. Came up with this because I have many CTMH stamps and they come in 6x6 packaging. As for the smaller ones, back to the acylic CDS BUT some have melted. Don't know why????? I keep them all together in a cool dry space.
