Anyone have ideas how to save or any ideas on the (oh no) Xyron system? Any comparisons? I just want to do more with scrapping and card making and I'm so battling myself. It's like I dont want to wait I want it now. Any one feel that way? I saw a good deal (I thought) on e-bay Cricut machine (new) with 4 cartridges and carring case for $300 Tried to talk Dh in buying for b'day but didn't work. Sure could use any help and or advice.
First I wouldn't try to do a deal where you get every thing at once. Michaels ahd a great deal just 2 weeks ago on the cricut for 139. It's the best price I have seen. I imagine joanns and other stores will sell teh smaller cricut also when the new expressions comes out in June(supposedly). Just keep your eyes open. As for how to save, I just keep an envelope for expensive stuff in my craft room when I wan to buy something else like a paper for example I just say hum I'll put it in the envelope and make do. I just also cut corners all over the grocery budget to do the same thing. Or the entertainment budget, like if I want to go to the theatre. I rent a movie instead and put the difference in the envelop. I find that the money saved adds up quick. I have always been a change saver. I only spend with cash and save the change. It can all add up. I dont think the DH would ever say sure go spend 60 buck on a cartridge, but he has no problem with me spending 60$ If I have saved it in the ways I've mentioned. HTH Hope you get your cricut soon.
If you find a friend in the same situation agree to go halfsies, or thirds. then you only have to save half as much
