I Didn't Buy Yarn or Fabric This Week

It's pretty easy to avoid buying yarn and fabric when there isn't any current temptation. But this week there's been some.

A lady posted on Facebook about the Tofutsies that she'd ordered for dirt cheap -- six bucks a skein instead of sixteen. It's still on sale as of Saturday afternoon, if you're interested.  I haven't ordered from this company myself, so I can't vouch for them.)

Knitpicks had their sock yarn on sale, and a code for 15% off everything, but I looked and thought about it and  decided that I can wait. Sooner or later, there will be new colors that I really really want and if I don't buy now I won't feel bad about splurging later.

I could end this post here, without telling you that on Friday I went to almost every craft store I know shopping for craft sticks and hot glue guns. In case you need a box of a thousand small ones or three hundred big ones, you can get them for $3.29 at Joann's if you use a coupon. That's way cheaper than the Dollar Tree.

Apparently I did need two boxes of craft sticks and a couple hundred glue sticks. At this rate, I may be looking for more coupons and making another trip next week.
