I hurried to get what I wanted. They have great sales on blitzy also but they are sold out by the time I get there LOL!

So this is the 3rd online store Ive trusted ... we'll see how this goes. I also spent the $50.00 to get the free shipping .... I paid like $51.00 and saved $48.00!!! Yay - YAy - YAY!

...you choose to stop buying things and use willpower to make it happen, which sometimes also means not looking at ads or sales or coupons.

It depends on your situation, finances, or future. I would guess you might still allow yourself adhesives if needed. Lots of people do it. No one seems to enjoy it, but everyone that does it seems proud that they did it.

I am waiting on an order from them as well - it was free shipping for $40 or more and everything was 50% off. It still hasn't even shipped. MUST. HAVE. PRODUCT.

I am going on a spending freeze as well. They've had 50% off everything in store too and I've been there 3-4 times during this sale, plus all the other orders I've been placing on eBay, etc. Lately I've been spending lots of time shopping and almost no time doing any actual scrapping. Time for me to get back to it!

Yep. I just decided that having money to spend on my new DD was more important than adding to my already over filled craft mess. I have more stuff than I will ever possibly use and need to start making a dent in it.

I do keep a list of stuff I need/want and look at it weekly to decide if I still need/want whatever it is. Most of the time I take stuff off the list. I do keep adhesives on the list because without that, you can't do much.

I watch ads for stuff that's on my list. I also don't go into stores "just because". I have to have a clear idea of whatever it is I am there for. Really helps on the not spending thing.

Everything in the store last week was 50% also. I had $50 in gift cards so I was a happy camper. I need to go on a freeze too. I've been on a frenzy spending spree the last 2months

Does it normally take so long? This is my first time ordering online from them.

what the heck? See now I wish I would have seen this before I spent that money - UGH!!!

From years ago, when I did shop online I didnt have an issue with long shipments. If they have had long sales like this with free shipping they probably are experiancing out of stock items ...

Great, Im going to email them. I would suggest that some of you that have been waiting while it process's does the same??!

If I had kids, I think that my spending would be alot more managed. Id rather have something to "want/desire" then only sb, mixed media & art items :S

Im having a sale this up coming weekend here in my town on my one to try to sell some of the extras I have. Then next weekend is the LSS Garage sale, Im placing the extras in BUT NOT SHOPPING AT. The only bad thing about the LSS - is only in store credit BUT ... I want a Cameo and they will apply my credits towards that

When they have a great sale and free shipping it tends to take longer to get your order.

I have never been unhappy with any of my purchases from Joanns, HL or SB.Com or my favorite CM consultant but I usually only order from each of them one or two times a year.

Don't worry, When they have a big sale, it does take longer to ship but it's never been outrageously long for me. Otherwise, it is shipped in two -three days. But when it's a huge sale and free shipping I have waited 5-7 days for it to be processed. They just get so many orders then.
