      I took advantage of my “between kits” time to really, really clean my scraproom, pulling everything out, putting some papers and ribbons and flowers and ribbons aside for my granddaughter and selecting some goodies for future RAKs.
      But this is about purging!
      I know that we used to talk about that a lot. If memory serves, at least one of you Savages used to be able to gather quite a pile to sell at a flea market thing set up by her LSS. I used to donate more than I care to admit to the local Senior Citizens center and a Girl Scout troop run by a co-worker.
      How about you? Do you still have a lot of leftovers that you get rid of in some way?

        I must be getting more careful in my old age, lol. I’m not buying as much as I used to, only what I really need, so I don’t have those piles any more.
        I did fill a small trash bag with dried out mediums and that was it.
        No more need to purge – I’m so proud of myself!!!!!!!!!!

          I am not spending as much now, being more careful about what I buy. At least, I think so. But, I use more on my projects now rather than hoard it for that”perfect” page.

            Jan, you’re right – I think I’m using rather than hoarding a lot more myself. I guess we’re beginning to realize at last that “more” is coming in another month…

              I only have a tiny scrap space now. I used to use the spare bedroom but now that’s Leo’s room so I’ve moved into the corner of the living room.
              When I moved I had to clear out all the excess and I ended up giving it to Sophie’s after school care so the kids could play with it.
              Now I’ve also been buying alot less, while I’d love to own everything new that comes out I have nowhere to store it

                Oh no!!!! At least they went to a good place, Bec. Was there anything that you now wish you hadn’t given away?

                  No there is nothing I regret giving away, it was mainly stuff that had been sitting in my stash for years.
                  I have enough supplies left to make a million layouts lol
