    Isn't that kind of like asking a junkie to help you get off drugs?
    The only way that I can do it is to give myself a cash allowance every payday and that's all I spend. When it's gone, shopping is done until next payday. Also, if I can become excited about a project that I already have the stuff for, it keeps my mind more focused. Honestly, most of us have that same dilemma. So, I wish you good luck

    You'll probably never have the opportunity again to buy at 75% off so I say "go for it'!
    Buy it now and use it later!
    Sorry no help to stop you from buying!
    Maybe they have things useful for Christmas giving!

    BUY IT NOW!!! I have been more sorry about the things that I have not bought than the things that I have bought.

    I cannot, in good conscious, tell you to NOT go and buy! How often are you able to buy fabric for 75% off? If you can fit it into your budget, then do it. I have been on a fabric diet since July 2012 and have only bought one 6 piece FQ bundle since placing myself on it. I would definately feel okay falling off the wagon to get stuff for 75% off!

    Woodstock Fabricland is closing and moving to Tillsonburg. Fabricland wanted a larger store in Woodstock and say they couldn't find one, so moving to Tillsonburg. I wonder if it has something with Len's Mills moving into town. The store closes Dec 29. No thread left and very few notions. I did get a Olfa cutter for 75% off and about 15 yards of material so far.

    When my local Fanny's Fabrics closed I went through the Kwiksew drawer and bought dozens of patterns for about 75 cents each.

    I have not sewn them all up yet, but they are great basic patterns for the whole family.

    At 75 percent off... I would fall off the wagon in a big way! Get the basics.. stuff that is timeless.
