I am in your boat....do you see me? I'm back here under all the paper. There was some glue under here and now I am stuck to some bling and I think I found the glitter. HA!
really and truly....I have so much stuff I don't need to shop,but that is habit and I love everything sooooooooo I am trying to detox. I don't usually buy paper. I have gotten better about it,but yesterday they marked some BG packs down at my work,Hobby Lobby, and I bought 3! old,new who knows,but BG is cool. I am obsessed with organization stuff too. I have got issues, I know,but the way I see it......my family is well, kids and hubby taken care of, roof ,car, love and I am not drunk or sleeping around-so I chose the lesser of two evils. When I die,someone better look at all my books....page by page or I am haunting them! lol Have a great day! queen

I hear ya. I have a ton of stuff and just keep buying more! I can't resist the brand new products, or a sale...it's bad! I really need to uncover my scrap table.


This summer I went through and took a lot of stuff I don't use anymore to school for my students to use. They're really enjoying making scrapbook journals, but now that corner of my classroom looks like my scrapbook room- a big mess!! At least there I can blame it on the kids!


I need to clean my room and take some more stuff to school. scratch

Paperlover! I sooo hear you!!!!! I probably don't need to buy anything but adhesive for years. But I love to shop and see the new stuff. I am desperately trying to cut back. In fact, I did not purchase a kit this month from my favortie kit club. It was hard...but I have to draw the line somewhere.

I am a paper collector! I have an addiction to paper. I have pizza boxes full, three shelves in a closet full and about 5-6 Cropper Hoppers full. The insane thing is that I go throught it twice a year and donate to the girls school and yet it still piles up. Laughing

I have a limited amount of space and storage. I reuse to make room for any extra so I really, really try to use up stuff before buying more- I think I'm losing headway though

this is funny, I just cleared out my scrap room completely and started over. we just moved into this house and everything just kind of got crammed into my room. So we emptied and arranged correctly today, still have to put all of my stuff in order. But at least the furniture is right! I don't have NEARLY as much as I thought! I guess that's good right?

I'm definitely in the same boat. But I have "buckled down" too and have been using more of that I have rather than buying new.
