How many times I've done that! I've found what works best for me (when I follow thru) is to make a running list, as I'm working on my projects. Then I go thru the sale papers for Joann's, Michael's & Hobby Lobby. When I go out on my shopping spree I'm more prepared then & don't usually stray buying so many other goodies. I've really tried to cut down on my buying of things I don't actually need & make myself use what I have on hand.
