My New Motto
Alright, so maybe it's just the motto for this year. I don't know how long I can hold out and be a real tightwad but I am going to try. I have things I would like and that means saving for those things which brings me to the save status.
I remember when I worked for a fabric store, they had a cost to buy and cost to make sheet made up for each of the stores samples. When a new outfit was sewn up, the cost was broken down right to the amount of thread, then a comparable outfit was shown and the cost compared. Of coarse the sewn outfit always came out with the best price.
I thought it would be interesting to do the same thing. When I sew an outfit, I will try to compare it with cost to buy. Now, with everything going up in price especially fabric, it should be interesting.
I also have my own bumper-sticker to remind me, how cool is that!!!
