Hey there hey! I’m back with another Hobby Haul and I have 2 more hauls that I want to share that will be coming soon. I’ve been shopping a hell of a lot these past 2 months, but at least everything I purchased was on sale, right? I purchase what I know I will use. I’m the type of person to walk around with a cart/basket full of shiz before making a purchase. I also calculate and compare any clearance deals to the regular price to see if it’s truly bang for my buck. Anywho, enough rambling. Let’s get into the haul with the full price breakdown.
As always, be sure to click the links throughout this post for related posts and links to purchase items/similar styles featured.

- Regular Price Total: $47.41
- Clearance Total: $11.62
- Total Savings: $35.79
Let’s break it down into categories, shall we!
All the sticker sheets that I purchased were under $1. I didn’t go into the store specifically looking for these, but I was happy to find the. My favorite for sure were the Tim Holtz alpha stickers. They were marked down to $.75. In hindsight, I should’ve picked up both. The other stickers were pretty random, but I know I’ll get use of them. I love all quote stickers from Me & My Big Ideas so I picked up two sheets of those. The most random would have to be the state stickers, but I like to use those to mark road trips or anytime my grandmother goes out of town.
Longer sticker sheets can be more difficult to store. You can’t just cut them down the middle due to the placement of the stickers. I use a large accordion folder to store them. If you want them more visible, there are systems you can purchase, or you can just use clothes pins to hang them up.

I picked up a few planner inserts which I shared in my last Hobby Lobby Haul. This time around I saw that there were these Heidi Swapp pockets that I could put to use. Although these are meant for a ring bound planner, I could easily cut that off. If I want to include it in a discbound system I can. To incorporate this into a discbound system I would use washi tape to cover the holes and re-punch. If I want to put it in my traveler’s notebook, I can do that as well with some double stick tape. Voila, I have 3 pockets that I can use for sticker storage and even stick a few sticky notes on the front.

I’ve been on this scrapbook paper kit and I’ve been meaning to share with you guys how I store it all. My system is pretty compact and all in one spot, so I know it would be useful to others. Plus, it’s inexpensive. I’ll get around to that. As for the scrapbook paper I purchased, I got a papercrafting kit which I’ve already started using pieces in my planner and I have a planner dashboard that I’m currently working on. This kit was a major steal for the price because of what was inside. There’s 10, 12 x 12 scrapbook paper sheets, a sheet of vellum stickers, a sheet of alpha stickers, and a sheet of large phrase stickers. Amazing deal for under $5.
The other was a Heidi Swapp paper pad. A lot of Heidi Swapp products were marked down significantly. This paper pad was marked down under $5 and I’ a sucker for anything floral, so I couldn’t just leave it there. They had other paper pads that were regularly $19.99 marked down to $5. I was contemplating getting one of those, but I resisted. The one in particular I wanted I would have used it for projects I do for church.
