DOLLAR TREE suprisingly has great scrapbooking stuff fairly often. Sometimes it is not worth the dollar but other times you can get really good stuff...especially embellishments!
DEALS has similar items to the DOLLAR TREE but usually some other items as well.
EBAY...I have found some REALLY great deals here!
HOBBY LOBBY/MICHAELS clearance racks rock! and they have online coupons!
CRAIGSLIST.com has an arts and crafts section where you can find scrapbook stuff for sale in your hometown.
If you have any other places to find scrapbook items on a budget please let me know!!!
