Finally got home from work and came back here to finish up some cards I'd started Thursday evening. As I walked through the kitchen I picked up my SU order and carried it back here.

That's when I heard the "Ding!". It was my craft room signaling that it's FULL! I cannot buy any more paper unless I'm willing to store it in a pile in the middle of the room!

By the time I finished the cards and was putting my supplies away, I realized that my Jetmax's are crammed full of paper and stacks. There's no room for my two new SU packs!

Why in the world do I need all this paper?

Okay, I'm going to start sorting through and eliminating some of the ones that I consider too ugly to use! Anyone need some ugly paper? LOL! I can't bear to throw it away no matter how ugly it is! I just keep putting it back in the folder thinking I'll need it someday.

There must be a 12 step paper buyer's group somewhere! And I need to join!

12 step program is as follows:

1. Admit that you have a problem with paper purchasing
2. Realize that there are other people that can help you with the problem (ME!)
3. Make the decision to let yourself trust the person that can help you (ME!)
4. Make a complete inventory of all the paper you have
5. Accept that you have way too much paper, and need to do something with it
6. Be ready to rid yourself of the problematic paper supply, by making seperate piles
7. Ask your helper (ME!) if they are willing to remove the problem
8. Make a list of all the paper stacks you have harmed by letting them go unnoticed and used
9. Make ammends with the paper stacks by sending them all to me.
10. Continue to remember your issue, and whenever you buy new (and ultimately unneeded paper) you just send it directly to me
11. Discuss how much more paper I want to take from you, and then let me take it
12. When success has been reached, tell all your other paper-holic friends to also send me their paper


Get it? Send me your paper LOL

Yeah I know, wishful thinking. I'm too cheap to be a paper-holic. I only buy it if it's a really good deal.

I don't need any ugly paper. I was going through my pattern paper the other day and was shaking my head and asking myself what I was thinking when I bought it.

Well, I know what I was thinking "Man, this is a great deal! Don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I'm sure I'll find something." I'm still looking for that special little something I can make with UGLY paper. Anybody out there that has UGLY paper projects?

I saw a advertisement in the local newspaper that a adult learning center for handicap was looking for craft supplies etc so I am going to get rid of a lot of stuff that I haven't used in a long time. Make room for new stuff.

I'm an addict, too! All of us paper addicts need to stick together and maybe one day we can overcome this nasty habit. Maybe we should each get a sponsor so when we see new paper that we are tempted to buy we'll have someone to call and they can talk us out of it. Or I could just take a picture of all the paper I already have just waiting to be used and carry it with me so the next time I just have to have that new stack I'll take out my photo and ask myself "Where on earth are you going to put it?"Huh

I'm cleaning and reorganizing my space to make it usable finally. I just filed all my Stampin Up 8.5x11 paper in two large completely stuffed file boxes. That includes all the retired because I'm just fine using retired stuff. Since I realized I'm not going to run out of good paper soon I took five full Cropper Hopper paper holders out of my room of misc. cardstock and am giving it to my friends. I haven't even started considering my 12x12 paper yet.

I just purchased a table off Craig's List with the intent of being able to slide my rolling 12x12 paper cart under it and putting my large file boxes on top of it. My husband saw all the paper and was just speechless. He doesn't realize how much is still in the basement.

Paper problem (or too much stuff)!! Donate to your local school or charity! Make a list of all the items and assign a value. Then get the principal or manager to sign the list. Use this as a donation at tax time...works for us!!

Let the ugly paper go, you will feel MUCH better!!

When I was packing for our move last December, I sorted through all of my paper and made a stack literally 3 feet high that I knew I didn't want. When we moved and I was putting it all away into my new room, I still didn't have room for it all to be stored "neatly" and made another 3 foot pile. (I'm not even exaggerating, but includes 12x12, 8.5x11, and 8x8.)

I gave it all to my mom and made it her problem. LOL

I LOVE paper, but I realized there is no reason to hold onto it if you know that you will never use it. When I first started I had the "more is better" mentality and would buy the most awful DCWV stacks. (Does anyone EVER use any sheets from the photo stacks?? LOL) Now I know that all it does it take up room and keep me from finding the papers I actually like.

The best part about purging is that you have room to store NEW stuff!! BigGrin

I really don't have too much. Most of the time I only go buy for certain projects when it goes on sale. I mostly have plain stuff for the cricut. I can always use more and find a use for it. Also I guess you could use it if you buy an Imagine. Print on the plain side of the ugly paper. At least that"s what I heard some might do. I don't know I don't have one. LOL

My jetmax cubes are overstuffed!!! I don't have room for the 6 other stacks I purchased over the last, oh who knows when? I have them sitting on my window seat in my room!! I'm trying to do better and not buy paper, but alas, I did buy 4 sheets of solid cardstock yesterday cause my stash only has a couple of that color. Yeah, right, like I really needed it!! LOL!!

I've just been seeing some cards made with the new color Cherry Cobbler and oh my...that's one of my favorite desserts and favorite colors. I don't NEED it but I may have to order it because I LIKE it. And the Christmas papers at Ms and HL and Js will be showing up soon (if not already) but I really WANT this new SU color! So I can sorta feel your pain.

This gave me a good laugh. The very first stack I bought was at Joanne's and it had a ton of photo papers in it!

I have used the grass, hay, and some of the sky sheets in different projects. The rest of it is just taking up my space!

Oh I heard it...but it was in MY CRAFT ROOM a month ago. I finally took the time and went through to cull out all the paper I really didn't want to keep. I donated it and a bunch of embellishments and extra adhesive to Ronald McDonald House for the cancer kids to make projects with. They were so thrilled to get it!! A lot of towns have programs like this...you should consider donating it to a charity organization.

You know the old saying..."one ladies ugly paper is another ladies treasure !" Ugh, okay I just made the up but it works, right? LOL

I do not really consider paper "ugly" just that my tastes have changed. I recently cleaned out my paper and have quite the crazy stack. I pared down to my favorite shades of each color and only kept heavy weight cardstock and really limited my selections. I still amazed how much cardstock I still have...need to get busy.
