    I don't have a budget, but I have been real good this year about not buying fabric for myself. I have a home business, and I buy fabric for that.

    And we bellyache when the price is around US$10 for a yard

    In the Netherlands we pay about 12 to 21 euro's for cotton quiltingfabs. Thats about 17 to 32 dollars per metre. A yard is 1.09 metre. But most of the time I save my pocketmoney and buy only when there is sale or I go to the market and buy cheap cotton fabrics there.

    I do love the Dutch chintzes from "Den Haan en Wagemaker" so much but unfortunailly I can't afford them. Chintzes have prizes from about 28 euro's!
    Look over here, they have amazing fabrics!

    Rose Hall,

    For some reason my husband's budget goes a longer way than mine too! I think it's the lunches out with friends that are getting spendy. He usually has money left at the end of the month, where i usually am waiting anxiously for the new month's allowance. I like being on a budget tho, it makes me more mindful of the things I do buy and how blessed I am to be able to have the things I do have. Also makes me mindful of sharing those blessings with those who are not as fortunate. Thanks for all these notes on this topic. Lots to think about.

    My husband and I are using the Dave Ramsey plan too!!! It is so freeing not to argue over money!!

    Rose
    I agree! We are working with the same plan. It is freeing not to argue over where the money goes - whether for fabric or fishing tackle!

    Just saw this and I have to say that I could sew for a loooong time on my stash! And this Christmas, all the gifts are from the stash. But I don't charge anything, and I am going to go to my LQS this afternoon! My budget varies, but I am retired, read that limited budget, and single, so I must behave myself!
