    Default Challenge: Shop at Home First

    (I give credit to a great site called "Cindy's Porch" for this concept!)

    Over the last few days, I've really wanted to get some nice journals to write in. After discovering the ones I like are all about $10 or so each, I decided to check my school supply stash, and found a pile of forgotten spiral notebooks. I dipped into my scrapbooking supplies (which NEED to get used, I have way too much that I bought last year) and dolled up four notebooks to use as journals! This cost me a negligible amount, but really it cost nothing because the money was already spent for the scrapbook paper.

    Anyway, I thought this would make a fun challenge, to shop at home FIRST, before considering purchasing something new.

    Anyone else done this recently?

    this is a great idea. we have so much junk in the house that i could probably really benefit from this technique!

    Sure - they're not that creative, though! I just happened to have some gorgeous papers that I was waiting on just the right thing to use them on.
