Organizing on a Budget – #3

Couponing? Scrapbooking? Arts and craft projects for kids?

If you partake in any of these activities and you don’t have a paper cutter, I’m sure you wish you did. I recently got my first little mini paper cutter for some scrapbooking projects and I can’t believe I ever went without it. It made my scrapbooking pages look so much nicer and did I mention the time it saved me? I didn’t have to line things up or use a ruler to attempt to make a straight line, it does it all for you! I also didn’t get those annoying, painful scissor indentations in my hand from hours of cutting. I purchased a small Martha Stewart paper cutter from Michaels for about $10 after all the coupons I used. Totally worth it! But not everyone is a Michaels Rewards Member and Michaels stores are becoming a little scarce, so I found some alternatives online for cheap!

This is a Cricut paper cutter and I heard that it’s awesome and perfect for cutting coupons and individual pieces of construction paper. You can buy it on Amazon right now for $7.97 and if you’re an Amazon Prime member you can get the free two-day shipping! Even if you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up for a free month of Amazon Prime and snag this amazing deal!

This one is a Fiskars SureCut Card Making Paper Trimmer. Although it’s called a card making paper trimmer, it can still be used for couponing and cutting card stock for scrapbooks. You can buy this online or have it shipped to your local Walmart store. It’s only $10.05 and you can get it shipped to your home for only $.97! It’s a really great, inexpensive product that us organizers, couponers, and scrapbookers shouldn’t go without!
