Left out an important category option:

[  ] I'll probably spend less on craft supplies.
[  ] I'll probably spend more on craft supplies as a way of saving money on gifts and other things I can make myself.
[  ] I'll be looking extra hard for sales and discounts on craft supplies.
[  ] I'll use more free or cheap materials in my crafts.
[  ] My spending probably won't change because crafting is important enough to me to continue to spend money on.

[X] My stash is so big I can just work from materials on hand more often.

Is there such a thing as a "big enough stash"?   Cheesy

No! Overflowing all available containers is what a stash is supposed to look like, right? Wink

Well, the object is to own it and be happy, right? You always have to buy something new when you have a project planned... I have so much damned yarn it has begun to creep into my bathroom for storage... but I still need to buy yarn... and fabric... but I am like a magpie, I am attracted to the shiny colorful things that can't easily be made into usable objects...

  Well, I talked my mom into buying me a gift certificate to Joann's for christmas since that is the one place that I can spend my gift cert without feeling guilty that I didn't buy things that I need (like diapers, wipes, medicine, clothes for little ones, ect....)
   Yes, so, I think that I shall use my Joann's money to buy myself some nice stuff, and I am not going to feel guilty about it since there is nothing that my kids NEED from Joann's!!!!

Wink  I am a bargin hunter always! 
So now I will be looking extra hard for sales and using coupons when I can.  Am always planning my next project in my head and when I find something I can use at a discount price makes it that much sweeter.

Yeah, I'm with you guys on the stash option... I'm always looking at my studio and am reminded of a Homer Simpson derision of Flanders: "Old painty-can Ned, hahahaha!"  And by the way, yarn in the bathroom, that is so funny!  I hadn't even considered the bathroom as crafting supply storage space, but now that you mention it......   Smiley
