I have 10 Iris boxes of paper... I have cut way down on buying but patterned paper is still a temptation. But I figure the paper is non fattening and will last forever. I go through it now and then and weed out some and put it in a box for my 8 year old and she thinks my castoffs are treasures.

I have a ton of patterned paper. I just bought a new 2x4 Expedit to store it in. And I keep buying more, but I cannot seem to use it. It just sits on the shelf taunting me.

The ladies that work at the LSS's I've visited must think I'm a complete nutjob. I stand in the paper isle and pet the pretty paper and pick it up and put it down (very carefully so not to "harm" it) while I chant to myself...you don't need this, you don't need this. It usually comes home with me anyway.


I cannot purge paper. I've tried and I lose maybe .... 3 sheets.
My friends purge paper ... and I bring it to my heap.

It is really rather sadly pathetic .... but, at least, it isn't cats.


I love this! Now I know what to tell my husband when he asks me why I brought home more paper. It's either more paper or another cat/kid.

Never too much paper. There is sometimes however not enough storage.

Amblet is soooo right, it is just a matter or two little storage, build a bigger hourse, see it is so simple.
