ways I saved money this past week

I didn't bid on Ebay!

I ran out of a scrapbooking item and Michael's and Hobby Lobby no longer carry it. I looked on Ebay, wondering if I could still buy it. Yes I can. And for a very large fee! I usually bought it locally, with a coupon, so spending $25 on something I normally would pay about $8 for is not in my price range. (When Creative Memories went out of business and the local scrapbooking company closed, it was a shock to us scrapbookers!)

So, I became resourceful. I have older types of the same product, that were too big. Easy. I cut about an inch off and it fit perfectly! (For the scrapbookers out there, I'm talking about 12x12 page protectors. Its hard to find original 12x12 protectors for strap hinge pages!) I have a stash of these older pages, purchased from thrift stores. Now I have a way to get page protectors! Yay!
