I really need to budget my scrap spending. It is not like I have gotten us into debt with it. It is mostly why I have a part time job but I feel I am putting it before family needs way too often. Just feeling guilty about it. Plus I am starting to wonder if the kits I get really are that economical. I think I am going to drop two and keep one. I find scrapbook deals 4 u to have the best value with the best embellishments. I am thinking of getting those kit(s) and then buy a few extras and stay within 100 a month. This includes tools too. I will either take a once a month trip to my LSS or buy online. I like the idea of online if I can get free shipping and a discount.I was wanting feedback from anyone on how they budget or do in these economic times. How do you decide what is a must have and a would like too? Maybe I am just being too hard on myself as I have recently felt how productive is the scrapbooking -- other then giving me a creative outlet. Which is important but in the long run will people care? I try not to be a downer on here but I wonder these things recently and need to get it off the chest.
