Also, instead of buying just 1 sheet, I would buy 3 or 4 because that way if I did use 1-2 pieces I'd still have 1-2 pieces left ... for WHAT?! I guess for when they stopped making paper I liked? Goodness!
I never was one to buy a ton of stuff. But I'm really bad about not using what little I buy. I recently pulled out some Basic Grey paper that I bought a few years ago, but liked so much that I was afraid to use it. Funny thing is, not that I am using it, I'm asking myself why I thought it was too special to use.

These days, my spending money is more limited than it has ever been. One of the reasons I joined this challenge is to keep company with others who are not able or willing to plunk down hundreds of dollars each month on craft items. We are probably the majority, but you'd never know it from reading some of the other SCS posts.
