You're out at the store and you can't remember if you already have something in your stash? I was looking at a line by Simple Stories and I know I have at least 1 or 2 sheets from the line but I couldn't remember which ones or if I had any of the sticker sheets. Ended up not getting anything because I didn't want to double up. Now I'm gonna have to search my stash to see what I have!

Anyone else run into this problem?

All of the time! We have a local FB scrapping group and I am selling grab bags on there, which mostly consist of things that I have bought doubles of!

I definitely have this problem especially with the papers and embellishments that come with kits! I can usually remember if I buy something if I pick it out myself, but the kits get me confused because there's so many manufacturers/lines typically in each kit.

Yes, except I usually buy it, 'just in case'.

I was at J's yesterday and bought a few stamp sets that were 40% off. Today I stopped in at M's and the same sets were on clearance with a few different ones. I picked one up and couldn't remember if it was one I bought at J's so I bought it. Turns out I did buy it at J's. I do this kind of stuff all the time.

Just looked and it turns out that yes, I did have the sticker sheet but only 1 sheet of pp from the line. Guess I'll be going back to get a few different patterns!

What I hate is when I go up to LSS still needing ideas, and after looking through that whole (large) store, get inspired to use something similar in my stash, not inspired to buy new stuff.

yes! Now I have a small journal in my purse that I keep lists of things that I know I will be purchasing more than one of over time. It has saved me a quite a few times.

Do you have a smartphone? If you do, download the app ScrapStash

Margareta (paperpilekitten) made this and it is fabulous! Saved me many times from buying things I already own, especially punches and inks

There is also a PC version, Scrappypedia.

Thanks so much Polly for including the PC version of in your post! Not all of us have Iphones and I really appreciate you including both. I just checked out this website-seems like a great way to keep track of supplies. I just signed up.

I do it all the time. And I have no patience to start using the wonderful stash tracking app cause entering the data for my existing stash is just too overwhelming a task Guess I'll just keep buying dupes

Is this an instrument of torture or communication?
