    oh I am totally clueless...I thought I got washi tape at staples. But it is tiny duct tape, I have to use scissors to cut it and it is a pain in the lower extremities...
    I know nada about this stuff, but my bullet journal needs some extra oomph.
    any way I live in middle of no where, so am looking at amazon...I know red and turquoise are my fave...so I want narrower ?
    can you enable me?
    I am looking at this?

    @WendyBird you are the guru (in my mind) of this....let me sit at your feet and learn!

    Freckled Fawn has an amazing array of washi tape in a variety of sizes. They add new on the first of each month too. Some sell out pretty fast though.

    If you have Michaels nearby you can get multipacks and with a sale or coupon they're really cheap. I bought a pack of 8 skinny washi for $3.19 (Normally $7.99) with a 60% off sale they had before Christmas. They also have 5 packs of wider washi for the same price. Even with a 40% coupon these are still very reasonably priced. Also Hobby Lobby regularly has sales for 50% off their paper studios brand washi tape. Staples does carry washi tape as well I have a couple of rolls from there. I think it's scotch brand and I think they sell for about $2 per roll.

    I agree with Freckled Fawn washi as well...It's super cute and really nice quality. I've gotten a few rolls through grab bags and one of these days I'll probably break down and place an order but honestly I need to go through more of my already overflowing bucketful of washi before I buy more.

    I have some of the sheets you posted, they're not my favorite, mostly I forget to use them. The rolls in the picture are super cute!

    Target often has some in their dollar spot, as well as Scotch brand with the office supplies - just make sure it says washi on it - they also have "expressions" which is like patterned/colored plastic scotch tape.

    Walmart sometimes has seasonal stuff in a cardboard end cap hanger thing (the technical term).

    And of course if you have any craft stores - Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Joann, etc all will have some - usually near the scrapbooking stuff.

    I adore my Freckled Fawn washi!

    I have ordered from this girl, I found her in a facebook group. http://nightowlwashi.storenvy.com/

    Also, I'm sending you a PM!

    I do get all gussied up every 6 weeks or so, and take the wagon to the big city for stocking up...so will hit up HObby Lobby and mosey over to there big red target store.

    I was going to say that I've seen washi at our dollar tree and walmart here. I got some as a stocking stuffer for my boys so that they could use it to sort of label or mark their mechanical pencils for school. Seriously. Mechanicals at their school are like cigarettes in prison. And @jk703 I don't have a use for it either, but I want to tape all the things, too!

    I should take photos of our shelves at Walmart...we joke that my town is like a 3rd world country...joke, but the saying is, oh I don't need that now, but it is in stock..buy it, cause when you need it, it won't be there. Amazon is our favorite store!

    Yeah, no sharing in this house either! I don't get it lol I think I realized the extent of the mechanical love when I overheard one of the kids in my middle son's class say to another, "Will you build my rocket for me? I'll give you these two mechanicals AND lead." o_O

    this thread. Seriously.
    Off to check that store Wendy suggested.

    I just bought a few rolls at dollar tree - specifically to hand to my kids on the airplane and let them tape their little hearts out. :backing

    I did decide while I was stocking up on their cute patterns that I will not buy rolls when they are less than a quarter of the amount of another roll sold for the same price. For instance: they had some different "more involved" pattern (maybe more texture or harder to print or something) that was about 2.5m in length, next to the same price that was about 10m in length. granted, all a dollar, but those dollars add up. And if it's a pattern i really love, I'm going to want more of it. So... I just made that rule for myself. I went from no tape at the beginning of November, to now an entire shoe box. :blush

    so I needed to set some limits for going forward.
