I spent just over $35 at Cornish Heritage and $7 at the ribbon outlet in Hagerstown. You should see the huge bag of goodies I got for $7 - several 35 cent baggies of ribbons, a reel of twill tape ($2), a HUGE reel of 3" wide ribbon for my daughter ($2), lots of fabric flowers and bows (10 cents per package), some scrapbooking ribbons with imprinted sayings (10 - 25 cents per package), some small spools of ribbon (10 cents each) and a few 'kegs' of curling ribbon (5 cents each).

After my big bargains at the ribbon outlet, we went to the other outlets. I bought my daughter a suit, a few pairs of pants, some blouses and shirts, 2 dresses (for upcoming weddings) and shoes. I also bought myself a suit, 2 pair of pants, a sweater and 4 blouses. All together I spent around $600 there...

I spent $15.98 today on envelopes from the Paper Zone. I was completely out of them after sending out Christmas cards. I still have my $100 gift card from Michael's. I'm waiting for the new cuttlebug things to come out.

I have been using my Michaels gift card that DH gave me for Christmas. I love him so much!
But the LSS I have spent $20 - DH also gave me a gift certificate there but I keep forgetting to use it.
And then I made a $200 order to The Angel Company! I can't wait for that to come. It will be a party!

So far I have spent ZERO!!

That's because I was spoiled for Christmas. My family got me 6 storage cubes from Michaels for Christmas. They also got me adhesive and a gift card for Michaels.

The real kicker though is that my BF's DH got her a 3 day weekend scrapbook retreat in Monterey Bay for her Christmas and guess what? He didn't want her to go alone so HE PAID FOR ME TOO!!!! We are going over the long Martin Luther King weekend!! YAY for me!!!

Zero. But -- my son was in the hospital for an appendectomy. I just haven't had the time to shop

He is home now, and I guess I have some catching up to do!

Less than $15.00 at www.allthatscraps.com. DH wants to remodel our kitchen, (his idea really). I am so thrilled, I am willing to stay on a budget.

Zip, nada, nil. I don't spend as much as I used to since we no longer have an LSS in my city and Michaels hasn't had anything new.

But tonight I ran out of adhesive. I think I see an ATG gun in my near future...

So far about $45 but I have a loooong wish list for SU! Will I ever reach the point where I Have It All?? Just wondering because a dear (and well to do) friend started me off with SU! by sending me, gosh, must be around $2000 worth of SU! stuff over a couple years time! Since then I bet I have spent another $400 or so and I haven't added up my wish list yet but I bet it's another $500!

I saw this thread the day it started and was so proud of myself...at the time I had spent under $5...on some paper at my LSS. However, today I hit Archivers. I had a 30% off coupon that was screaming to be used. I *had* to get a Clip-it-Up. See, I'm trying to get organized and stay organized. I love it by the way. I have only been in Archivers and not spent money once. Today they had lots of new stamps in...including the bird stamps Amy (Heartfeltgreetings) showed off a while ago, the Changito love balloon stamp, the Making Memories Love Story embellishments...you get the picture. My total is now over $100. But I already inked up some of the stamps and used some of the paper I purchased. And the Clip-it-Up is out of the box and in use. So, although I spent far more than I had planned on, a good portion of it has already been put to use.

Ok, I didnt get to vote, missed this...but I have spent just under $70, of course that is with my discount, and including shipping. They may not seem like much, but dont worry, on February 2 I will placing an order spending at least $435, not including any sales I will get on that day since I am having an open house. And that is with my discount. Yowsers! I wont regret a dime of that however. Funny, I have buyers remorse over everything...EXCEPT stamping stuff.

Also missed the vote but so far zero. I've nearly clicked 'order' a few times for some of the new release Penny Black stamps but so far I've resisted temptation. I'm hoping to go to a big craft show weekend after next so I'll probably have a bit of a blow out there

I missed it also, but I am proud to say, I have spent 0 dollars. I am not spending anything until April when I sign up except for the cricut layaways I have going but those were started in November and December.

Well, I'm ready to confess a bit more purchasing yesterday. So, I guess I do discuss these things!!! LOL I HAD to have some dew drops (it's all Debbie Olson's fault) and then while I was getting those, had to get something else.

And so it goes...

I refuse to answer.

you can't make me.

So you know all purchases to Gina K, Papertrey, Stamping Bella, Lizzy Ann Deisgns, and other growing companies that are lead by women are not stampign expenditures, they are the price our current generation is paying for the increasing role of women as business owners. It's like a march, or a bra burning. We HAVE to do it to support womenkind.


and you want to support womenkind don't you?

Shame on those of you who are not spending money! Even SU is a women owned company, so don't tell me you can't support the cause because you are SU only.

heehee.

I haven't spent any money on anything fun yet. But on new year's eve I had a bit of an incident with my 5 month old car and now she's in the shop for a new oil pan which is going to cost me over $1100.00!!!! *sigh*

When I get out of the poor house I might have fun money again.

But since then I have. $15.00 on a Crop-a-dile 1/2 off Coupon from Mike's

And I just placed an order through TAC. For about $50.00. New Stamp set's and Paper.

And I'm thinking about getting some SU stuff too...But I might wait till Next month during SAB to purchase anything.

And I got some Martha Stewart Tape Ribbon for $3.99 at my local Woodmens Food store.

I've spent $0, but the month is not over yet. Plus don't ask me after the 15th Papertrey release.
