  2. Leisure challenges
    Anyone want to join me in a de-stashing challenge to work on using up stockpiles of craft supplies? My downfall is yarn. I am a yarn junkie. My containers of the stuff are visible proof. It is time to start seriously using up what I have and stop the alluring pursuit of the next delectable...

  4. Preparedness and Survival
    Do you think as 2012 approaches that the cost of Prepping supplies will get drastically higher? Is it safe to think that one should get the most merchandise for prepping before 2012 gets here as that stuff will be more valuable?

    I know there have already been a few threads about school supplies, how expensive they are, etc. We did our supply shopping this week, and I am just absolutely peeved. One of the supplies on DS's list is a particular type of notebook that is not sold anywhere reasonable. The ONLY place this...

    Where are you finding your school supplies? Any good deals? Walmart in the past we found was the best place to get supplies. This year I find their selection small and prices higher. We have found the drug store and the local grocery store to have the best price on school supplies so far. Our...

    I am a teacher. Do you have issues with teachers that want you to supply items for her class (such as Kleenex, Cans of Lysol, wet wipes, copy paper)? I ask each student to bring one of those in addition to all the supplies they will need for class.

I just really REALLY need a hobby to keep me sane and I love...

    I saw them when I was at the store tonight. If you use the Jiffy products, they also have those out. They had a pretty healthy selection of seed packets. If you're in Canada and have access to Superstore or any of its subsidiaries, check it out. :)

    Dd and I scrapbook quite a bit. We purchase most of our items from Close to My Heart. Sometimes we purchase items from Michael's if we have a 50% off coupon. We've recently had a new scrapbooking store open up in the city closest to us and I've bought a few things there. I try and stay...
  20. Scrapbooking & Paper Crafts
    I know we all try hard to be frugal even when we are hooked on scrapbooking. All those "little" things that make a page look so nice. I found a great site for getting sale items, many at under a dollar! Always look at the sale tag on the top right, they really offer some great deals...
