Let's face it. Scrapbooking can be expensive. If you consider the paper at $1.00 per sheet, stickers approximately $2.00 per sheet, and embellishments at $3.00-$5.00 per package, you can easily spend $10.00 to complete one scrapbook page. And that's not even considering the tools required.
Luckily, we have the internet. There are tons of scrapbooking bargains to be found online. The first place to look is eBay. Okay, so I may be a little prejudiced since I have a scrapbooking store on eBay (Kim's ScrapShack). But there are a lot of other vendors besides myself who sell products at great prices. Just do a search for scrapbooking and thousands of items will come up. Your best bet is to skip the auctions and just scroll down to the bottom of the page and buy directly from Ebay stores. You can buy items now at bargain prices, without having to wait for an auction to end.
You can also find great prices at most scrapbooking sites on the internet. Most sites have a clearance or sale link you can follow to find great deals. Below are a few of my favorites:
Two Peas in a Bucket
Keeping Memories Alive
Scrap 'N Save
You can also find many more scrapbooking websites at the Scrapbooking Top 50 website. Be sure to look for a sale or clearance link at any site you go to. You'll be amazed at what you can find. There are often name brand products listed at 75% off the retail price.
Your memories are definitely worth preserving. But they don't have to cost a fortune!
