M's was not the greatest yesterday I picked up 1 album @ $2.99 and another @ $3.76, 1 MME paper pad @ $2.99 and a zig glue stick @ $3.68. I was able to use 30% total purchase which made it better. On Wednesday I got a Heidi Swapp Hello Today 12/12 paper pad for $7.99 and one of their Hot Buy "Gradiant" texture 12/12 pad for $5. @ J's I picked up some studio calico chipboard pieces/buttons, and some Tombow glue. Didn't spend much in store but I found some great online deals @ J's. Everything was half off and I ended up getting 2 4 packs of the Ad Tech adhesive for $4.99/piece down from $8.99/pack. I've gotten them from TJ Maxx and Tuesday Morning for about $4.99-$5.99 but I can rarely find them now so I stock up when I can. I usually scrapbook alot on the weekends and my albums fill up fast so stocking up on the essentials makes more sense to me. Did anyone get some good scrappy items????

I bought a couple of things online at J's. They had Fiskars all 60% off so I couldn't resist.

And I spent under $26 bucks for my first J's order, the next was $12 so I stayed really close to budget.

I got a huge set of journaling cards, protectors and stickers from MAMBI. It was $50 plus I added a gold sticker pack for $5.
I also bought the days and dates cart from cricut website. I'm a circle member so it was only $22.50.

I don't think I did too bad. I'm waiting for Christmas to order from here. By then, I will be in Florida instead of Canada so shipping will be a lot less for me.

Cool I have a Cricuit that I've used 1 time. I need to use it before this year is out

Went to M's for their 2 hour only 70% off Christmas decor sale. Got 4 hollow plastic Christmas ball ornaments for $1. 20! Really pretty quarter inch tinsel trim for less than a buck. Am heading to Jo Anne's and M's now to pick up some 12 x 12 paper pads for 12.00 each! Y'all are invited to come with.

I did some online shopping. Went to a few sites offering 30% off. This is the last of my stamp and die collecting for the year and I really did it up good. Loved the extra discounts to get those last few things I've been putting off. Now time to start focusing on others.

I bought some stuff from an online site for 50% off my entire order so that was worth it!

J's is having yet another 50% off everything online only I believe. If you're still shopping it might be a deal for you. I think I'm done for now

So ended up going to J's Sat. morning and picking up the DCWV glitter, metallic and Fairytale scrap0book that I had wanted for 10 dollars each. But this time I had a 20% off coupon too. So got them for 8 bucks a piece! Woot! Woot! So glad I didn't buy them when I saw them on sale the first time!

I spent more this year on building up my stamps and dies (I'm actually a little embarrassed) that I have to make that dreaded new years resolution. 2015 will be a no spend year for me. I have so many things I haven't used yet that I'm sure I can get through a budget year without getting bored.

Ooh. A no spending year. Shudder at the thought. You are a better man than I, Gunga Din.

A girl at our crop is doing a no-buy year in 2015 too. I've done a no-buy challenge, to make X LOs without buying anything other than adhesive, albums and page protectors. That was hard, and it took longer than I expected. I did it though, and I don't plan on doing it again for a while.
