If you have been following along on my Cricut posts, you are probably wanting a machine for yourself. You may be wondering if you will use your Cricut Explore Air 2 enough to justify the price. I say of course! But just me saying that probably isn’t really a great answer. So, here’s what I think.

Right now the Cricut Explore Air 2 costs $229.99 (regularly 299.99). That would be roughly $20 a month if you saved up for a year. If you decided to eat lunch at home just once a week and saved $5 a week then you would have that extra $20 to put towards the machine.  It’s an investment but one that’s worth it.

You will use this machine enough to justify the price if you already:
