I told you that I was going to write a blog about how to save money buying your scrapbooking supplies... today I am going to talk specifically about how to buy Cricut Cartridges cheap!
Over the past months since I bought my Cricut I have purchased a number of cartridges to go along with it. I believe that I am up to somewhere around 16. Which is more than some people have, but a lot less those people who realized what fun it would be to own a cricut long before I did! Never the less, for those of you who do own a Cricut you know that if I had purchased those cartridges at their regular price (let's just say around 70.00 each)... I would have spent $1120.00 (GASP!!!) Had I bought them on sale at Michael's for $39.99 (that's a typical sale price at Michael's) that would mean I would have spent $639.84. Certainly a significant savings, but still...that's a lot of money to spend on a "hobby"." The truth of the matter is, with the exception of the first couple of cartridges that I did purchase on sale at Michaels... I've bought the rest of them for significantly less, on Ebay! I have purchased all my cartridges for between 21 and 31 dollars, with an average price of around $25! I've actually spent less than $400.00 on the purchase of Cricut Cartridges. I buy by auction only... and most of them through the seller, Craft-e-Corner, they have free shipping and they are fast too! I love them! So...that's my money saving tip for the day! Stop paying retail or even sale price for your cartridges, Ebay auctions will save you money!
