Getting Rid of Scrapbook Supplies (Q&A)

It’s Q&A month and I’m answering your biggest questions about life, business, and simple scrapbooking.

Q&A with Jennifer Wilson | Getting Rid of Scrapbook Supplies

What do you do with products you know you won’t use?

I keep a USPS flat rate box in my office as a home for unwanted supplies. Whenever I have an item I know I won’t use again (or at all) it goes in that box. By having a designated spot, unloved items don’t accumulate in my stash for an unknown time in the future.

When the box has started to fill up I will see if it is worth selling any individual items (or the whole box) on Facebook. Then I will donate whatever is left to my daughter’s daycare or a local organization. Our school district runs a store selling craft supplies (and other items) that people have donated.

    I donate my unwanted items to the Salvation Army. They either use them for crafts with kids or sell them. I used to try and sell them but it seemed more bother than it was worth. I have been simplifying this year and jettisoned over 400 wood mounted rubber stamps.

    I do the following with scrap booking items I won’t be using:

    * donate them to our church for Sunday School activities
    * donate them to schools to be used in the preschool area
    * donate them to schools to be used in the art department
    * give them to someone as a gift

    I enjoy sharing with others. It’s interesting to see how others use the items I have given them. And I feel good knowing that sometimes it’s the little things (such as a little bag or box of scrap booking items) that can really make a person’s day. 🙂

    This is such a great idea to have a temporary home for unwanted products until you are ready to get rid of them. I had a major, major purge 18 months ago before moving to Hong Kong so pretty much what I have now is what I know I will use.
