Honestly I LOVE the adhesive that I get from Walmart. It is cheaper compared to many others I have tried and it works really well. It is called Ad Tech Glue Runner. It only cost like 3 dollars for two refills. It is great. I still use things like glue dots from time to time.

Zig pen for Cricut small cuts. Other than that, right now I am in the process of using my huge collection of glue sticks. They are not my fave but I have a lot so I will use them up. Afterward, I plan on purchasing an ATG. Of course, I won't need to buy anything else if I don't get better about scrapping.
for larger pieces I like tape runners. I don't have a favorite (well I did but I don't remember who made it...my mom found a multipack at costco and can't find it again). All the craft stores around here have different ones, so I have a favorite tape runner at each store, I guess, haha.
For small cricut cuts, I use a Zig pen.
For most other cricut cuts I like to use my Xyron 250
I like my zig 2-way. and I use the tape too. But mostly use the zig 2 way especially on cards.
