    have fun with your forty percent off and be sure to tell us what you get.

    I know when I got 20% off at my LSS it got things I don't usually buy like chalk and pencils. Of course I still haven't used them but I will eventually I'm sure

    Pas2 it is Sadie's sentiments located in Avondale PA
    I am looking forward to it. Last year my invitation didn't make it on time! I was so bummed when it came a day late! She was very nice about it and with my next purchase she gave me the discount but I didn't know it so I didn't stock pile!
    Not sure what I plan to buy she just had a wonderful paper sale so I am fairly stocked with that I don't need or want stickers!
    I would love to get lots of adhesive but from what I hear you need to be there early and get in line! Ladies grab quickly! So not sure!
    I can't even believe I am saying I don't need anything! YIKES!
    Patty if you only knew how much I have spent over the past year! I really didn't think it was enough to qualify! But I have been buy all my albums there! Plus refills and that seems to add up! I usually go once a month and spend about $40. So I am surprised too!

    I was surprised how much I spent each month and I consider myself very frugal...I don't even use eyelets! I was trying to put myself on a hold but then I saw some new patterned paper (my weakness) and some letter stamps and oh my that just blew it.
    I love the LSS around me but I also can't resist the 40% and 50% coupons from M, ACM and JoAnn's.

    If you get up Allentown way there are 3 stores in the area: Scribbles and Scraps in Quakertown, Kinnon Keepsakes in Allentown and The Scrapbooking Store in Easton.

    Let us know what you bought! Happy shopping.

    Wow! 40% off on your whole order is a great deal! Wish I shopped at your store cause I know I spend more than $40/month. I'm afraid to even keep track, but just for fun you've got me thinking. I'm going to keep track of my SB spendings for June. Who's in with me?

    Patty I wouldn't if I were you! Granted I could be wrong how much I spend but I swear it is around $40 but that doesn't include online or ACM etc....
    I am sure there are times I spent more in a month. But it isn't often like when I first started out! But now it seems l just get odds and ends!

    Lately I have been VERY BAD :(
    Especially since I got DSL two 1/2 weeks ago and can fly through the web sites!
    I just put in a $300 Creative memories order (I do this about every three months) and thats just the albums, refills, and page protectors! I go to Michaels every week that their is a coupon and spend an average of $10-$15.
    Then I ordree about $60 a month online average-
    I really need to start scrapping more to use this stuff!
    I am going 'NO SHOPPING' for the next 2 months (so I say) I want to save my budget for the KISS scrap faire!

    I'm back! I didn't do too bad....concidering! I bought lots of paper of course but I went for the expensive stuff, mulberry, mirror paper, hand made paper, textured paper, glitter paper etc...you get the idea! Plus I bought the new cutter bee paper cutter. Hope I like it! some pens, adhesive, glue dots, die cuts....refill for my sticker maker (x one) It is amazing how expensive paper can be! I also bought refills for albums, refills for my sticker binder, a color block template....I think that is about it. A few stickers but not many! Now I need to scrap!

    umm Patty I thought your no shopping started yesterday!?!!?
    I think I did very well today. I have no idea why I bought that cutter bee! It was there, I was there.....people were grabbing them! I hate when people grab at a sale then it makes me feel I must grab too! HAHAHA
    So I will play with it and let you know!
