Ina, I'm glad you have such nice neighbors.
I have to say, I'm seeing some great results with this challenge. I may not be out of the hole yet, but my checkbook sure is looking good. I'm getting pretty picky about what crafting things I buy. I look at something that catches my eye and ask myself if I just want it or do I NEED it. If I don't need it or know I probably will only use it once, I pass it by. Of course, knowing I'm going to be going to see DD and the granddaughters in 3 months helps. I want to go to Hobby Lobby when I'm there. Hopefully I won't go crazy in there.
