My Scrappylife

sometimes it really pays to be cheap…

Posted on: April 2, 2008

i’ve been thinking of whether or not to get magazine subscriptions (Simple Scrapbooks, Creating Keepsakes, etc.)  Teena even suggested we (including Romely) just get one subscription and just share the magazines.  ang mahal kasing mag-subscribe. pero lately, i’ve been striking it gold sa Booksale.

got “Scrapbook Play” and “CK Hall of Fame – Volume 9” for just P100 each.  went over to and saw that they’re being sold for P720 EACH!!!  🙂

was also able to buy other magazine issues for P50-65 each lang.

I even got this for just P250 at BooksForLess (Mall of Asia) – regular price for this? P675!!!!


There are only three BookSale outlets here in Pampanga but I’ve managed to acquire an adequate collection of scrapbooking magazines these last few months.  Medyo matagal lang bago may dumating na “new” stocks but the wait is so worth it – as I get to save hundreds of pesos for each magazine.   I can only imagine the advantage that scrapbookers who live in Manila have – hindi lang tatlong Booksale ang pwede nilang puntahan. 

so, i confess. i’m cheap.       but smart and practical. 🙂

Panalo talaga yung Booksale!! 🙂 I buy random magazines there too, mga Domino and Blueprint (just because I like layouts) and ang sarap kasi P90 lang naman hahaha!

Wow!! Di ko pa nakikita yung Scrapbook Play. Gusto ko rin! Think I’m going to scout my Booksale na rin.

Ganda rin ng Album Shortcuts! Unfortunately, I bought it at the standard price.. but fortunately, sa States ko pinabili kaya mas mura kahit paano (but nothing beats your Booksale price)!

hi yoyim! ako din sinusuyod ko buong booksale, kung sang mall ako mapadpad naghahanap ako. yun scrapbook play nakita ko sa robinson’s metro east pa..from P65 to P100 ang range..super mura..
