It's hard to break that spending habit when so many scrapbook companies have such beautiful projects. I got a note from Betty who wrote this yesterday about her struggle to stay on course.
"Well I must tell you it was very hard to keep my scrap my stash promise. My LSS sent me a message that everything is 25% off and I was actually at a store two doors down from there and didn't go shopping.
Next I hit the dollor store and they have a bunch of their scrapping stuff on for 50% off. I ran from the store screaming.
Then I get to Walmart and they have their Christmas Scrapbooking stuff on 75 % off. And I still didn't buy anything. Of course I have been in a deep depression ever since. I may have to go shopping to pull myself out of my funk LOL."
I totally cracked up when I read this! I could just image her running out of the door clutching her hair, eyes bulging, and screaming. LMAO off Betty!! Good for you for staying strong!!! So, if you are struggling, you are not the only one. They say it takes 2 weeks to make a habbit. Keep at it. If Betty could turn away from 3 different sales, you can too!!
One idea to make it a little easier is to unsubscribe to all your usual online shopping newsletters. No more Scrapbook Steals, Crafty Steals, Scrapbook.com. You can always rejoin later when you have lots of money from saving it in the next months :)
