How to stock you craft supplies for less

Keeping your craft supplies stocked with what you need is not all that difficult if you know where to look and when to buy.

The local Hobby Lobby or Joann's Fabric are great places if you need something specific like a NFL team fabric or sewing machine needles, but for the supplies that you "might" need they can get a little pricey.

Best time for craft shopping is all of the time. Yes, I said all of the time. This doesn't mean that every time you go to the store you should fill your cart with the entire craft aisle.

For instance, while shopping for groceries, take a minute to walk down the clearance aisle, or stoping by your closest Goodwill or D.A.V. every so often can reap the biggest rewards. Don’t forget that the ordinary can be turned into the extraordinary in the hands of someone using their imagination.

Spring will be sooner than you think and that means garage sales, another great place to shop for things like yarn, craft books, paints and anything else you might put aside for later use. 

Remember you might not find something every time but buying your supplies this way can save plenty and you will be surprised at the ideas you can come up with after you accumulate some odds and ends. Keeping your craft supplies full can help even the most boring of days go by with out too many complaints.
