Today I spent almost $2900 on my car. I decided to revisit my stash and get real cozy with it since that’s where I’m going to be doing my shopping for the foreseeable future. It fills two large closets, the bookshelves I had made for the stash room, and the hallway linen closet. And that’s not even counting the purple Fabric Patch bags sitting everywhere in my sewing room full of fabric that hasn’t been ‘filed’ away yet.
This weekend I was actually thinking about ordering more of these bookshelves, and then thought stupid stupid stupid! That’s like buying new slacks rather than losing 10 lbs to fit more comfortably into the ones you already own. Well, actually I was thinking about that, too, but that’s another discussion for another day.
I am committed to using up half (or more realistically a third) of this stuff this year. My goal is for everything to fit on the shelves. I have a closet of bolts for backings so I’m all set there. Perhaps some border fabrics or very small cuts of colors I might need for applique is all I will be purchasing.
I didn’t make a New Year’s resolution this year – so this is my March 16th resolution! Better late than never!
