March kit

One of the ways I've discovered to keep from spending way too much and then not using what I buy, is to make a kit out of my stash each month. I'm really enjoying this little strategy. I use my kit for the projects I'm working on and I'm actually using up my stash (which means soon I can go get more! Yipee!)

Goodies in this month's kit:
Patterned Paper: Making memories VH paisley flowers, Junkitz Flowerful words and Flowerful Big flowers, American Crafts Play croquet and The Goods Tiara, Cosmo Cricket Wanted Buffalo Bill and Doc Holiday, Scenic Route Hampton Kendall Circle Blue, Bohemia Barefoot you and me Swirl, Fiskars Heidi Grace Designs Love Blossoms Twigs, Fontwerks Kate Teague Hello Ladies hello kah-mei, Basic Grey Motifica Chalk, Wild Asparagus My husband stripe, Foofala (blue dots on lined paper)
Embellishments: Maya road journey accents New York city round slides, chatterbox spruce/olive clear cuts, Li'l Davis vintage wood small words baby boy, pink tags - unknown (from Jessi's rak), Autumn leaves scribbly rhonna farrer enchanted stickers
Mini book: Maya road Blossom chipboard book

Can I tell you again I love this idea!!! Once I start getting through the kit I actually purchase every month I NEED to do this...I was even thinking we could do a kit swap...with a allocated amount of certain supplies - especially since I seem to have the same of so many things. Anyway you are going to love the Circuit...I got one for Christmas and it is very handy!!
Have fun with your kit :)

Great idea! What is your strategy? How do you pick which papers you'll use?

Need more details, b/c I tend to get lost in all my stuff. I forget that 1/2 of it's even there. Give us your process...

Love the idea, totally gonna do it. Plus, it'll keep me from having to pull everything out and make such a huge mess. Love it!
