I decided I was going to curb my spending on crafts at the first of the year by doing the following:
1. Use only scrap pieces of paper on my cards instead of grabbing for a new sheet of paper.
2. If I need any supplies, check and buy only out of the clearance items/racks.
3. Re-purpose household items as much as possible. Like buttons, ribbons, paint-chips and other stuff that can be used.
4. Try new techniques and products that I have bought over the years, and maybe only used once. Like stickles and embossing powers, that I just had to have and hardly ever use.
