I would say between 60 and 70 dollars. I bought stickles, paper packs, embellies, rubber stamps and a few other little odds and ends.

Yikes!!!! I just checked my bank statement it appears that I spent $215.....$80 of it at AC Moore that is going out of business here so I needed to take advantage of some liquidation prices.

I was quite surprised that I spent that much....the most expensive trip was about $36, but I quess if you make several of those, it really adds up....oops!!!

I bought paper, embellies, ink pads, adhesive etc...just the regular scrapping goodies.

I spent about $250 on a ton of paper, brads, embelishments, glue, stamps, etc. The list could go on and on.

Not much. Maybe $25, mostly on paper, and a little on adhesives and one of the Pioneer strap systems.

I spent way too much, but it's hard not to when you work at a store that sells scrapbook stuff and you see all the new arrivals before they make it to the shelves...

I didn't buy anything July, August, or September. So October was probably about $250.

As a guesstimate, I'd say $40. Bought 3 albums on clearance for $8 a piece, page refills, and some adhesive. But tonight may be a different story - cropping at Archivers!!

Way to much. However I was aided in this. I hardly ever buy things when I'm on my own. My Daddy came up and we went shopping. Then my Momma and my sister came up and we went shopping. Its hard not to buy when everyone else is.

I bought...
2 books
2 or three magazines
2 cartridges for my cricut
Xyron 150
2 packs of paper
2 kits
photo paper
proably ten packs of embellishments
ashesive
and I printed out some pics

Wow! This almost hurts to say... Probably around $400 and I believe the most expensive thing I bought was the Basic Grey Magnetic Mat for $25. I really intended on stocking up in October and not buying anything else until next year but that didn't last long (maybe two days)

The items I can remember:
5 or 6 Basic Grey Collection Packs
All embellishments to match
A lot of thickers
Around 10 single sheets of pp
Both boy and girl Animal Cracker Goodie Boxes
8x8 Album
Pegboard
Material to make a homemade storage rack
Baby Croppin Cutie trash can

There were tons of other things. I am planning on limiting myself to maybe $20 or $40 for the month of December. Then I can turn around and buy all the Christmas paper I will need to scrap all my new photos.

I've only spent around $20. I'm on a strict budget until after the first of the year. Even then I dont go crazy every month. I usually have around $30-$40 per month.

OH NOOOOO, you're not going to make me total it all up are you? Everything I bought was right here at the Super Store and as your punishment, LOL, I'm going to show you everything I bought in October. I started a Christmas Through The Years album and I made the clock as a Christmas gift for a friend. The total with shipping and handling included is $80.24 :

I think it was only $10. Wow that is low for me!

I bought some alphabet rub-ons.

Of course, my sister has comissioned an album and will be buying all those supplies... so I still get my fix a little. (But I AM trying to be very budget conscious on that of course!)
