Current No-Buy List

If I have a lot of some scrappy something–OR tools that can make more of that something–then that item goes on my No-Buy List. This list was most recently updated on December 27, 2020!

Alphabet Stickers

This means Thickers, regular stickers, rub-ons, etc. Not only do I have dozens already, I have enough dies and stamps, through old school steel rule dies to recent Freckled Fawn to make pretty much anything I want. I’m good.

Alphabet Dies

Related to this–I don’t need anymore alpha dies. I *want* some, but I don’t think I need them right now. Notice I won’t commit to adding alpha stamps to this list yet, however… 😂

Ribbon, Fibers, & Floss

…but not twine! Not yet…

Any Size Paper Pads or Collection Packs

I have four cubes+ full of paper. I know I was happiest when I had *one* cube full of paper. I won’t commit to banning single sheets yet, so I still have some outlet. 😉


I have four drawers just for punches! They’re small drawers, but still! Pretty sure I can make whatever I need or want with them.

Minimalism is not about having less. It is about making room for more of what matters.
