I cut expenses by joining a card making group and we share stamps, ideas etc. When I make a purchase I usually wait till I have a coupon or go to grarage sales (lots of great stamps at some of these). I know at first when you see a card in a magazine etc the first thing you want to do is purchase the stamps and make the cards but I found when I did this the stamps would sit in the original container for quite awhile till I got to them. Now when I see a card I like I check out the stamps I already have and substitute, the cards turn out great and I save money. One other thing you might think of is a lot of the small stamp stores have a garage sale, they allow customers to have a table (at a small fee) and sell any of their stamps, supplies etc and you can really get good deals. Just some thoughts that might help. Marge
