Scrappers- How Much Do You Spend Each Month?

I was just sitting here mentally adding up what I spent on scrapping supplies in the month of January and the amount I came up with was $250! Now, in my defense, that did include the money I received from my parents for Christmas and I've only been scapping since last September. During a normal month, I would say I spend around $100 on scrap supplies. So my question is...


I should also add that I do purchase things on sale or use Joann's, Mikes, and HL coupons whenever I can to cut down on the expense a bit.

I joined a monthly scrapbooking club that sends me oodles of goodies each month by mail. That has really helped me stick to a budget better. I can't just go out and spend more because I know that I have surprises on the way.

Oh gosh! I don't even try to add up anything, because I don't want to know!

But I do use all the coupons I put my hands on, also I wait to see the sales of the different stores, I LOVEEEE the craft outlet and the discount stores.

Last Thursday I went to Hobby Lobby and spent $32 buying probably 50-60 sheets of cardstock, 2 pair of scissors and 2 specialized kits. I thought that was awesome. Yesterday I had to buy more photo stickers, a refill for my tape runner and another glue stick. That was MAYBE $10. I don't think that's too bad--$42 in 6 weeks. Like everyone else I wait on sales and use coupons. That's one reason why I had so much paper to buy at HL last week b/c I haven't bought any in a while. I also buy albums on sale and stock up.

Now, when CKU comes to town or I go to a LSS....LOOK OUT!! Katie bar the door b/c I WILL stock up on the good stuff then!!

I am thinking of joining a scrapbooking club. Sounds exciting to receive stuff every month. Any ideas on some good ones? Are there any that have Disney stuff?

Is this a trick question? are you really my DH trying to figure out where all our money goes???
actually when I first started easily $100 a month or more some months! Had to stock up you know!
Now I think maybe about $20 believe it or not...of course some months are $100 but that is usually when I really need to stock up or a great sale. and believe it or not sometimes I spend nothing per month! But I do have a huge stock pile of stuff!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally the Tag Fairy lost the last part of my quote.. bad fairy. Bad bad fairy.

hmmmmm.....depends, but I am a really FRUGAL person by nature

For me (I'm a pretty new scrapper, maybe been at it for about a year) it varies quite a bit. If I go to a CM crop, like I'm doing tonight, I usually will spend about $20 or $25 there. (I don't buy their albums or too many of their things...too much $$ for me) but I do like their crops, their punches, and some other of their tools & I try to go to one of those crops a month. Then I'll go to HL, Ben Franklin Too, Michaels, and/or Joann's if they have something on sale that I want or need or if I have a coupon. I try to limit myself to that, but of course I end up finding other things along the way that I want, too. Last night I went to a LSS and spent only $9. I rarely spend lots at those places, as I hate to pay their prices, though I do love browsing at their goodies and especially hitting the clearance bins/tables! But part of that is also because I'm really a simple scrapper, too. I don't do embossing, stamping, or inking. And I rarely use sewing or ribbons/threads/fibers. I pretty much stick with lots of papers, stickers, rub ons, borders, die cuts, brads/eyelets, tags, and embellishments. Adding up this month I'd say I've spent roughly $50. Last month was probably more like $30 and that is probably the norm for me. (Of course, this doesn't include photo processing). One of my fav places is Dollar Tree! Love getting stuff there for a buck! So, I guess I'm kind of a cheap scrapper, but then, as I said at the beginning, I'm really frugal (read: cheap) by nature, so that is reflected in my scrapping. (hey, I gotta save money for those cruises somehow, now don't I? )

If you are a new scrapper we will forgive you this time. But this is something that it never discussed among scrappers!

Okay seriously, I am in the ball park of don't want to know. I have great months and not so great months and it all balances out right? Okay that is what I tell myself. As long as I keep my dh happy collecting hotwheels he doesn't care or notice.

I have no idea how much I spent last month. I know how much I spent today though! $38! I bought a bunch of Disney stuff in anticipation of a future (not yet planned) trip to WDW.
