November Craft Spending

It turned out to be a "no spend November." With the upcoming move, I resisted buying craft items. This was hard with all of the advertisements for Black Friday sales!

I am still pairing down my craft supplies in anticipation of a smaller craft space in our next place. Right now, my hope is to set up our large folding table and the big red shelves that John built for me in a corner.

I sold some craft items at our garage sale on Black Friday. It is hard to let go of stamp sets, but the wood mounted ones take up so much space. I felt better about parting with some supplies when a gentleman explained that he was buying items for his 12 year old granddaughter for Christmas. She loves to stamp. :)

December will remain low to no buy for me, but I may do a little craft shopping in the new year.

Just catching up Sara...glad you enjoyed Thanksgiving. I've never heard of household goods being weighed to be moved!

Thanks for sharing, Sara. I think it is easier to resist buying when you are about to move...well when we had our big move across the country I went on a scrapbooking spending spree. The store I worked for closed a couple of months before we moved and I had no idea where I would buy supplies after we moved. I rarely bought supplies anywhere else. But then, I had to move all those supplies. :)
