That's such an interesting question. 2 years ago I bought 99% from 1 company (CTMH) as I'm mostly a scrapper and I wondered if it would be a savings, so I tried it. For me, I saved money because it eliminated the impulse buying AND I really used most everything I had because it all color-coordinated.

I'm not sure I can go back to 99% because I do make more cards now and I like SU! (esp now they have unmounted) and AMuse Studios. There will still be savings for me to just stay out of the stores though. I seem to buy stuff I don't use. I can plan purchases better ordering them.
