Use It Up NOvember - All challenges added!

Post by 1scrappymom » Wed Oct 30, 2019 9:38 am

Thanks to everyone who participated this month. I hope you managed to use up a BUNCH of your stash and made way for some Black Friday shopping!!  The winner of this challenge is Scrappinmom99 - Anne Marie! I'll get your GC out to you later today!

Is anyone doing this? I have spent so much in the last couple months that I think this would be a good time for me to maybe actually use up my stuff. Also, I'm sure I'll be doing some Black Friday shopping, so I guess I will use that as my cheat day!  LOL Also, since I am off work for a while, I think I might use November to actually organize my scraproom. It's funny how quickly things can get out of hand. If anyone would like to join me on this spending freeze, feel free to comment here and we can use the month to support each other...or enable each other to break the freeze! I'm happy to add  weekly challenges to help us use our stash if there is any interest. Let me know. 

Week 1 challenge - Since we are stash diving and using things up, I want you to dig into that stash of patterned paper you've all been hoarding and use some of it up! There have been so many manufacturer's that have gone away. No sense saving it. So for this challenge - use up some patterned paper from a discontinued manufacturer that is at least 1 year old. No other rules other than finish your layout by the end of November. Combine with whatever. Just USE IT!!  

Week 2 challenge - OK, so we've done something OLD...let's do something NEW! I know I have purchased a lot of things recently and they are just sitting there waiting to be used up! So this  week's challenge...that stuff you just HAD to have recently...USE IT!!! No other rules. Combine with any!!

Week 3 challenge - After organizing my cardstock this weekend I realized I have a LOT of scraps. My challenge this week - use up some scraps!!  (Cardstock or patterned paper). Let's make a dent in that stash!! As always...no other rules. Combine with any!

Week 4 challenge - You're in the final stretch!! For this week's challenge, lets use up some of those embellishments! Maybe you have a sticker sheet with just a few more...maybe you have some old alphas that don't spell anything...USE THEM!! No other rules...Combine with any! 

Finish up all entries by midnight 11/30 and I will begin choosing winners to receive some of my stash!

Count me in. I’ve become so overwhelmed with all the stuff I have and really need to stop buying more.

Awesome. I'll post challenges on Mondays and will throw in a $5 ACOT gc at the end. This is certainly not to discourage shopping here but more to use what you've bought.

I am an epic fail when it comes to a freeze... I will, however, be very supportive and be sure to pull out my checkcard often  :greenwinkb:

Me, me, me!  At least use what I have for a bit.  Been ordering baby photos and Ireland photos. So once they arrive hoping I can find some time to scrap!

Count me in Shannon.  I did a major purge this year after having to move my scrappy stuff twice in 6 months.  That's when I realized how much I actually had.  Got rid of good but old collections that I knew I would probably never use.  I think I bought them just because they were on sale.  lol.  I believe in the out with the old and in with the new.  I usually buy non paper products and have been using what collections I have.   Sounds fun.  Other than my secret sister and envie, the freeze is on till Black Friday.

I have a lot of stash but lately have been buying, buying...help! It is because we are stationary for 6 months and I can have things sent directly here rather than pay to have twice for shipping once to our main address and then again to forward it. I hadn't bought anything except adhesive and some stickers since March. I need to take time and go through what I have and organize it and use it!

Count me in!

Oh, I really belong in this group!  I have purged my stash twice, yet have four times as much stuff as before I purged.  I just cannot resist good sales, new collections that call my name, and stamps I never use.   Please help me!!!    I need to be forced to dig deep into my stash, which has now spread from my craft room to a spare bedroom and closet!  Enough is enough!  Bless you, Shannon!

Definitely up for this and can look forward to splurging for a Christmas gift to myself later. I have been using lots of my stash lately, but have way too much still left. Count me in!
