I want to order some eyelets, brads, and new markers/pens. I was looking at ordering from Oriental Trading Co. as they have some really good deals. Just an eyelet set and brad set (each costing $24.99) with a 20 % off coupon still totaled $51. (Shipping and the savings from the 20% coupon were about equal). I feel bad spending that much where I just bought 2 cricut cartridges on ebay (a total of $48). I really think I am going to have to put a $50.00 per month spending limit on this hobby.....or really a $25.00 per month spending limit!!

Oh, if anyone was interested, the coupon code for Oriental Trading's 20% off is ASB747 and is good on any order placed by February 1, 2010.

I went overboard and bought a TON of brads and eyelets when I first got into scrapping...but now I've learned to only buy a small pack of what I'll need. Saves me money.

Oh I hear you! I only get cartridges if they are on sale and if I have a coupon for other stuff or it's on sale.

Thanks! I ordered a few things from them last night. Discount codes are always good!

I totally hear you on the expensive part. DH and I each get $50/mth to spend how we want. I always end up spending it on scrappy stuff. I try and save some of it but then I see that next new thing and I just have to have it.

i am not sure what I will do when I need new summer clothes and no money to buy them.
