I was really surprised to see a thread on UKS about 10 days ago asking them to set up a forum or group especially to follow a stash diet. It surprised me as UKS is funded by sponsors who are on there to try and drum up business and get people to spend! Do we need a forum to help us "stash diet" or do we need to just show a little self restraint? In an attempt to be good myself at the moment, i have decided that if i join in with a document life type project this year, i am not going to buy a kit to complete it. Last year i opted for the "Life Stories" kit, they have a lovely website if anyone is struggling to find something like that for a year long project. This year I'm going to revert back to the Shimelle Document 2010 format, and use up anything that i have lying around that fits with my photo's each month, I'll keep you posted.
I also have to say another great way to stash bust is to get images from Google. I have been hooked on the Glitz whatnots and peek a boos for over a year now, but when you just want little images to slide in the back of your scrapbook pages, your can find anything on google, the ones below are for 2 scraplifts that i have done, I'll post them next time.
I think some posts on "bargain hunting" might be a better way to help each other out.
On another note, i have been ordering for the goody bags for the retreat, so i guess I am getting some retail therapy there !
