Scrapbook Newbie? Here’s How to Save on Supplies

If you’re not satisfied with simply storing your printed photographs in albums, it’s time to put your creative chops to work and make a scrapbook instead. With this, you get to hone your arts and crafts skills and put your most cherished memories on paper. To do this, you’ll need scrapbook supplies, so here are tips on how you can save on the essentials:

Shop online.

 

Shopping online allows you to get your hands on good deals. Some online retailers offer discounts on starter kits or buy-one, take-one on stickers. You just have to be vigilant, and visit their websites constantly to learn about these enticing offers.

Buy in bulk.

 

If you have scrapbook buddies in your neighborhood or workplace, ask them if you can pool all your money together to buy supplies in bulk. Doing so will save you much-needed bucks. However, since everyone will have a different scrapbook theme, make sure to buy items that are not theme-specific.

 

DIY embellishments when you can.

 

Having store-bought embellishments like stickers and ribbons is a great idea. However, if money is tight, you don’t have to buy these items in bulk all the time. What you can do is take the do-it-yourself route. Gather old magazines, and cut out pictures from them. You can also use old receipts and tickets as your main decorative element, like tickets from the first time you took your child to Disneyland.
