I was trying to be so good & only buy what I need. Well.... I walked into a store & found two different MS punch around the page sets...one for $5.99 & the other, $6.99. I like them both but have no immediate use for them. Keep or return??? What would you do?

I'd keep them. If you like them, there is a very good chance you'll want to use them on a project.

Do you have the disposable income to buy them? Is something else not going to get paid for because you bought them?

If yes, return them. They will be there for the next several months if you do decide you want to use them on something.

If no, don't stress about it.

I would keep them because returns are a pain and it's rare I get to the sb store.

Hmmm.... I have written out and erased a few several suggestions but then I came back to this:

If you are truly trying not to buy what you don't need, you know what you need to do.

If you are trying not to buy but are ok with making a few exceptions, then compromise and keep one because it was a good deal. Google (images) of your punches and you will likely see projects made with the punches. Decide which one you like best.

That's what I think.

Keep them! I have a manual die cutter and a digital cutter, but I love those punches!

I agree with Peasacake.

If yes, return them. They will be there for the next several months if you do decide you want to use them on something.

If no, don't stress about it.

That's a great price on those and there's a lot you can do with them. Nice find.

I say keep them. You will likely never find them again at that price and some are increasingly harder to find.

I would just keep them, because as sure as you walk into that store to return them, you will find other things that you want and perhaps walk out spending more than you spent on the original purchase.

Keep them, and look on You Tube to see if you can find a project using them. Then do the project, you won't be sorry I am sure

Do you LOVE the patterns they cut? If so, it makes sense to keep them.

Did you LOVE the price? If so, it might be best to return them.

It's been my experience that if I question myself about a purchase, it's probably not something I truly love, want, or need. And when I decide not to purchase in those situations, I am always happier in the end.

Good luck in your decision!

That is a GREAT deal! I would definitely keep them. If it were a $50 item, I might say return it, but $15 for the two of them?

Also, lovestodigi has a great point that just walking in the store again might tempt you into an even bigger transgression!
