    I know how compulsive I am too, but I just keep telling myself enough is enough!
    That sound like a good idea. I'll have to try it. I keep vowing not to buy anymore, but I can't resist a sale.

    I am the same way. I just straightened my sewing room again trying to figure out where to put more fabric and I am not finding any but I sure like to buy, buy, buy. Especially if I see sale, sale, sale. I try and limit but it is so hard. Yep New Years Resolution loose weight, you probably thought I was going to say no more fabric. ha ha got ya!!

    Same issue with me. No more room, but the desire for new is strong. This forum has a moitorium post..not buying fab for a year! I joined and so far for two weeks been good. Just like going on a diet. Planning a move in spring and really need to get rid of stuff.

    I really need to reorganize my stash so I know what I have. All in containers but several are messed up so to say.

    I am so glad I'm not the only one with this problem. :lol: There are only 2 quilt stores near me, and a Joanne's about 35 miles away, but with winter here and snow on the ground, I don't get out as much to buy more fabric. Of course, there are other avenues to fall back on. A couple of weeks ago I did reorganize my fabric as Brenda suggested, and I must admit, it let me see just how much fabric I do have. My DH is a real trooper though. When he sees more fabric coming through the front door he just grins at me and shakes his head. So, with him in mind, I've taken a vow not to buy more fabric. (Does that mean I can buy a new purse instead??) :lol:

    I have had days like that too. If I don't have money I can throw around I just delete the emails and get on with it. I know I really don't need anything usually. I was about to order this week when I opened another email and found out the toy fund from the town I am from (Pineville, West Virginia) had been robbed of all their toys so I sent the money to them instead. It's a struggle not to click on all those emails.

    I just finished reorganizing my sewing room. Spent a whole day just going thru my fabric. And it took a whole day. Felt just like Christmas.

    Try saying to your self is it a WANT OR A NEED and then go from there... Sorry but I don't buy material I use all of what I have that has been given to me when I bought a quilting machine. The only material I did buy was for the backing. Merry Christmas

    Instead of adding to shopping cart I now add to wish list. Keeps me from buying.

    I justify buyin more fabric by telling myself that prices are going way up next year, and I won't be able to afford to buy anymore. And I only buy on clearance/sale under $4. And I delete most emails from fabric stores without opening them. And I've found fabric shopping is the best cure for depression. And I really don't spend much money on anything else. And...and...and....

I've heard of them having a charge card & running it up to $10-20,000. I won't use a charge card thank goodness!
    one of my medications can do this too and my Dr asks me every time if I have any impulses the I have difficulty controlling, gambling, drinking, shopping.

    I do not shop on line, BUT I have some really GREAT shops nearby! I do not need any more fabric, so I am staying out of the stores.

    I have begun to do that also. I say to myself, "I have too much already... so why even look". Sometimes I do look but no one is giving free shipping away unless you buy 'x' amount of fabric, etc.

    Currently, I am re sorting my fabric and I am discovering fabric I had forgotten about. It is a nice discovery. I have also learned that I have had pretty good tastes in the past. I like what I have purchased. LOL We are funny creatures! :lol:
