I know on Etsy there is a group that has taken a vow not to buy supplies for the summer. I understand that they mean well with gas prices going up and the cost of going grocery shopping is no cheaper. A gallon of milk in my store (my day job is a small town grocery store, the nearest big store is a half hour from any direction) $4.59. When I see people come through my line with $100 worth of organic fruits and veggies, I don't understand how people can afford them.
Back to the topic at hand, supplies. I am attempting my own version of no buying supplies for the summer vow. I vow not to buy any yarn until all of mine is gone. I have an upcoming show and I need to make more cotton bags (people in my town LOVE to use their own grocery bags), so I will only buy clearance fabric. I think that, with the exception of fabric, I am set for the summer with supplies. I really have a TON of yarn and i might even start destashing it in one of my shops.
How about you? Can you take the vow not to buy supplies for the summer?
