    Since the sales were so very good this year, I would assume that the Black Friday sales and the Cyber Monday sales will be as good....if not BETTER!!! Starting today, if you would just put a few dollars a week away and promise yourself not to spend it, think of the bargins you could reap!!!

    10.00 a week x 52 weeks is $520.00. If all that fabric is half price or more off, then add JoAnns 20% off coupon that they had for Black Friday sales, or some of the free shipping that the on line stores were doing today Cyber Monday, you could add a ton to your stash!!

    We need to plan.....it's never too early!!

    What a great idea! Instead of a Christmas Club, have a Quilt Club.

    That is a wonderful idea. I want to do this for a quilt show instead of black Friday. Leave the credit cards at home. Thanks for the idea.

    Good idea. I do some sewing for people and every bit of money that comes in is put in my sewing machine cookie jar. I save it for something special. I saved all my money last year and part of the year before till I had enough to pay half of what the Viking Designer Diamond cost. This year was the pits as far as sewing income, so it mostly went to pay for my lawn boy.

    When we moved here from Co. I started a change jar. All change went in and sometimes I put in 1$ bills. Have filled up 5 quart jars. I counted it 2 years ago and it was a little over $400. That took 12 years to save up!Don't know how much is in now.

    I have a cookie jar on the top shelf of my pantry I received as a gift some time ago. It's something I will never use but it's too soon to regift it. It will make me a cute money jar!

    When I first saw the caption "2011" I was afraid one of our members had gone off the deep end - I am still swimming through the end of 2010. But when I read the whole item - yes, it makes beautiful and do-able sense. :-) Hmmm, now to find a jar - - - -

    I have a bottle I bought at Christmas Tree Shop last year that says "Wine Fund". I may have to tape a new label on it saying "Quilting Fund." I don't do Black Friday.

    ha ha ha.........I've been ''off the deep end'' for so long!!!! Saving for Black Friday, Cyber Monday 2011 or whatever should be fun and in the end, very rewarding too!!

    Great idea! I sometimes don't buy something, because I don't like the price, even tho I really like the item. By saving the money and using coupons, it would almost feel free! Hey, I can live with that!
