As I prepare for Christmas on a limited income I think about how blessed I am that I have found really great deals on things I need but REALLY want… truth be told.
The antique quilt top is a great example…
it is a nice larger size without being a full queen sized bed quilt… it is made entirely of old plaids and feed sacks… I lucked out and got a great deal! It has vibrant colors and a patina of an old quilt and dates about 1940’s. This has been on my bucket list since I realized they existed!!!
I got all cotton batting on sale for $15.00 for this quilt! Now to find a nice muslin for the back n binding 🙂 That will be a future budgeted item… you see we live on a pretty tight budget…
But one more thing did make the budget because it was such an awesome deal and under $15.00 so it was a no brainer to me… this great book!
I got it as damaged but new on Amazon for less than half price including shipping!
|because of this ding!|
So I have been looking for things I want for cheap and just happened to get 2 this month… next month I doubt I will get anything as my next project is paid for, collected and waiting for me to start it! 🙂
Do you budget what you spend on your craft? Any tricks you can share with the rest of us??? Would love tips on how to be a more savvy shopper 🙂 Just don’t ask me to use a coupon that isn’t on my iPhone! lol
