Shop til you Drop!

So if you hang out at any of the forums that I do - you know that everyone loves to tease me about being the shopper!!! It’s not that I shop that much – its just that when I do – I am out to get a GOOD deal!!! As my Dad always says, “The Nose, Knows!!!” (Ok, so he was talking about finding a restaurant in a town you've never been to before – but hey – it works for shopping too!! LOL)

I just love online shopping! I have gotten very good at searching and finding the very best price for whatever it is I am looking for!! From a birthday present for my hubby to scrapbooking supplies – I HATE to pay full price for anything!!! So for today's entry I thought I would share some of my favorite places to find scrapbooking supplies at a GREAT price!!!!

So here we go!

First on my list is Dollar Scrapbooking…. and just like the name states – most things are just a dollar!!! We are talking name brand scrapbooking items for a DOLLAR!!!! And they charge you ACTUAL Shipping!!!

For example - Karen Foster Chipboard Alpha Charms ... these are Reg $6 but here - a $1.00

Second on my list would be Create for Less. I like this place for a wide variety of stuff! Not just scrapbooking! You do have to watch what you buy here - as some items they have a minimum number that you have to purchase! So while it may be the cheapest price you have seen anywhere, do you really need six of them? They also have a clearance section and right now they are having a $1 anniversary sale!!

Third - OF COURSE - is Paperthreads! (Ok, so really it is first on my list - but I couldn't say that with out looking... you know prejudice!!! LOL) No in all seriousness - Paperthreads has expanded since I started shopping there last year. Michelle Hessler, the owner, operator, and all around guru - has turned the store into more than a place to buy cutting files. You can also find all the major electronic cutters and accessories, binding machines, paper, adhesives.... just a whole lot of stuff!!! (And of course my cutter files are for sale here too!!)

As an addd bonus - Paperthreads has an awesome message board with a GREAT group of people! One of the things that turns me off of message boards is DRAMA! I mean, I have enough drama in my life by just being a military wife! I don't need anymore!!! This is one place that tends to be totally drama free!!! So stop on in and say "HI!"

Fourth on my list is ScrapbookPaper.com. The link takes you to their sale area! They have some awesome, awesome, did you hear me say awesome - sales. Items start at 30% off and go all the way up to 75% off!!! This is also the place where you can find all your Karen Foster needs!!! (I love Karen Foster stuff - it is soooo yummy!!)

For example - the Splash scrapbooking kit - contains 8 patterned papers (2 each of Splash Collage, Pool Tile, Rippling Waves and White Caps) and 2 Stickers (1 each of At the Pool and Water Park). Reg $6.99 on sale for $3.99
And my last great shopping place for today: The Eyelet Outlet!! Where their motto is: "Because eyelets and brads aren't just round anymore!" I have to admit I am an eyelet junkie!! I love these things!! And if they are in different shapes, different colors and different themes!! WOW - it just doesn't get ANY better than that. They also have a clearance section where you can get eyelets DIRT CHEAP!!!

One of my favorite eyelets that they sale are the combat boots!! Yes I have them on several pages in my own personal scrapbooks!!

Well, that is going to do it for my Shop til you Drop entry today! Hope you have fun shopping!

Until next time!
