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 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.
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.
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.
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.
