A "find" while grocery shopping
I needed to pick up a few things at Costco this week and I followed my usual habit of walking all of the aisles to get some exercise. This is a dangerous habit because I always seem to find things for sale that I didn't know I "needed" (does this ever happen to you?).
I came across this scrapbooking tote full of supplies for only $19.97. The colors were very appealing to me and there were some lovely ribbons, flowers, brads, lace, glitter, gems, paper, tags, pearls and even a three ring album - all in a useful tote. So of course it "followed me home" and it is now contributing to the general clutter in my craftroom. I am sure I will find uses for most of the contents...eventually!
I haven't used any of the items yet but I am sure I will and the tote alone was probably worth the price. I wasn't familiar with the company "Scrapabilities," so out of curiosity I did a search and found the exact same set on Amazon for $79.95 (with a "list" price of $98). You can see it HERE. I looked a little more and found that Scrapabilities has a Facebook Page HERE.
So that is my bit of "enabling" for today - if you are a Costco shopper take a look for this - I found it in the office supply area near the photo frames.
