I think I went a little overboard procuring the equipment I need for my IAT 233 project...
We needed cutting mats, heavy duty utility knives, and glue.
Well. I got all that, but I think I blew my budget by over 100%. All in all, I spent about 55$.
I already have a 2$ cutting mat I got from Daiso... but I've been wanting a self-healing mat for the longest time so I got an 12x18 OLFA self-healing mat from Michael's.
I also got a heavy duty OLFA utility knife that seems like I'm ready to cut some drywall
The utility knife I was probably on par for budget, but I definitely went over the edge with the cutting mat. LOL
