HInts and Tips for Destashing Your Scrapbook Supplies from layoutaday.comAt long last, we’re back with a HUGE update and a fun episode about destashing and decluttering and downsizing your scrapbook supplies.

I’ve been going through a downsizing to limit the amount of supplies I have, and in this episode I’ve got:

  • Five reasons you might want to destash
  • A handful of guidelines for making decisions as to what to toss and what to keep
  • Some ideas on where to send those once-loved goodies so they’ll be put to good use

    I’m a PTSA president so I know exactly where to donate my supplies. :-) I’m putting together some kits for a 6-week scrapbooking class for the students given during recess. This is going to be a fundraiser for us. Since they won’t be able to go out to play once it gets cold, this will be a great way to use some of those old supplies. Thanks for the tips Lain.

    So funny Lain. I was just thinking about trying to limit my digital supplies, googled it, and up came a new episode from you! I do paper as well and am trying not to build up a huge stash in digital.
    Funny when I started doing paper scrapping ten years ago I tried only to shop for what I would use, did pretty good at first but over the years it’s been a struggle. It’s so fun and easy to shop!

    Well I’m glad you found me! :) Digi is tough because you never use the stuff up. It’s always there! That might be a good topic for a future episode… thanks for listening!
