I could tell you what I've bought this month- 37.7 metres, plus 10 yards, of various fabrics; voile, velvet, pinstripe suiting,georgette, lace, mesh, fishnet, lining and interfacing. Last month I was pretty good though and only bought about 8 yards of fabric. God knows how much I've bought this year so far!

Unfortunately, I can't answer this questions without a lot of work.

I purchase every two weeks on my pay day.

Most of the time it's remnants or Fat Quarters, so I don't spend a lot. But I can come home with a bag full every other weekend.

I try to limit myself to $20 every time I go out, whether I get three different things with that or one type.

So if you look at the math, I've only spent $160 this year.


Of course, none of this takes in account buttons, zippers, paper crafts, etc. That's a whole other story.
