in 2012 I am going to set aside a minimum of 20% of my monthly craft budget for Black Friday through December sales. I feel I can stretch my money by waiting for the holiday sales. The Christmas deals and the inventory reduction sales after Christmas have been great. I got several things with my Christmas money and there is nothing I really want/need right now.
This is why I chose January as one of my 4 months not to buy anything. I have several new things from Christmas.
