First Test Of the new Start

 If you read my last blog post you already know that I am trying not to spend or waste money.  I am turning over a new leaf as they say.  Today was the first of many test.  Yes I did spend money at Joan's, but not for fabrics or crafts. I bought a dollar pair of gloves. Yes I need them ( I pledged to buy only what I really need.)  my hand were freezing.  Normally I would of bought a pair for around 10 dollars. 
 It was really tough being in the store today because every thing was on sale ( after Christmas sales)  I saw some fabric I would love to have for  $16.99 but walked away. OK maybe I did carry it around a little bit before putting it back. But I did put it back.  They   also had needle work patterns on sale for half off.  I didn't even go near them. That was a temptation I know I couldn't win.  There was also this cute Christmas throw with kitties on it. I love Kitties! But with a forlorn look I walked away.
 I walked out of the store head held high.  Only to have to return, because my one dollar gloves had a
hole in them.   


  1. Happy New Year! You are starting the year off right, even if you did have a hole in your new gloves. :-)

  2. Happy New Year! I don't even dare go into a Joannes. I have so many projects that need to be finished around the house!

  3. Happy New Year to you! And you were so good to walk away! I know it's hard to do! Looking forward to blogging with you this year.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
