I voted other because its in between for me, sometimes I do all at once and sometimes I do as I need them. Depends on how hectic my day is when I receive my goodies. Most often though I will trim all at once. I sit on the couch, stick in a chick flick and cut until my hand cramps- then I take a break for some munchies

I voted other because I do both. Sometimes I trim them all, other times there is one or two sets that I just HAVE to use and I trim and use them before I trim the others. Just depends on my mood I guess!

I'm awful - I trim as I need it and sometimes I only trim the stamps I want to use at that moment!

I feel really bad since I have so many unmounted stamps. But I have my favourites and I find I use them all the time AND the best part is they are already MOUNTED! LOL!

I keep putting it off but I'm going to do a major clean up and I WILL MOUNT MY UNMOUNTED STAMPS...

I just have to keep repeating that over and over again and maybe I'll get it done!

I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one with unmounted stamps!

I usually try to trim them all at once but I just got a bunch in and most sit because I can't stop playing with Doodle This! I feel so bad for the rest to be rejected that way but what is a girl to do Doodles is just talking to me!

I used to trim them all at once. Now I'm lazy and just trim as I need them.

I trim them the day I get them! It drives me crazy when my friends wait until they want to use them to trim. I make a photo copy of the image sheet and put it into my binder so I can see what I have without going through all my sets!
Happy Trimming!

I would have to say all at once, but the part I left out is that my husband cuts and mounts them for both me and our daughter...I know spoiled, he is good to us

I voted for trim all at one time because that's what I generally do. But, I ended up with more sets with this last order (hostess and sell-a-bration additions and I'm not sure that I want to do them all at once. I will probably end up doing a set at a time. Quite awhile I go I started stamping sets on a notebook page reference, but I'm ashamed to say that fell by the wayside as I added more and more to my collection. Should definitely get back to that as it was helpful. Good luck with your trimming. Do hope you have the SU scissors as they make it so much easier.

I usually trim all at once. However, I do have a set I haven't finished trimming yet.

I have trimmed mine for about 8 years using generic scissors and finally purchased them with my Sell-a-Bration party allotment. OH MY GOSH!! What a difference!!! I cut about 13 sets in probably 1/3 the time it usually takes me and my fingers weren't sore! Kicking my butt for not purchasing them years earlier!!
Me too! I got the rubber scissors with my order also and WOW is there a difference! Get them!

Oh- I have to trim them and mount them almost as soon as I get them. I HATE mounting stamps so if I don't do it before the excitement of new rubber wears off....I am afraid I won't. I did leave two stamps unmounted in a set the last order that came in - I didn't have time to mount them because I needed the set for a swap. But before I could use the set again I had to mount those two.....I'm a little worried now. I ordered my demo kit and it should be here tomorrow.....I might have carpal tunnel before it is all said and done! Whew! I might change my view on this topic next week. LOL!
