    GREAT advice....and I wish I had followed it last year when I wayyy overspent. Never again - damaged the budget for 3 months....

    Boy you can tell we are all quilters. There isn't anybody here that say's "nope to 50% off" cause you just never have too much stash (LOL). I love to pick up fabric that way. I recently ran into $2 a yard at LQS cause they were getting rid of stuff - so I picked up way more than I should have (didn't leave credit card at home - ugh)to use as backing for the quilts we are making for fire victims. I just couldn't say no to that price - so I'm certainly no help! Go - look & enjoy.

    Don't forget the price of cotton is supposed to be going up, if you can get it for 50% off the current price, I say run for it.

    I agree with cjomomma, especially if you already have a significant stash. Buy only what you might need to finish a project or two or what you might need for a new project. I can't believe the amount of fabric some of the quilters on this blog have. HOLY COW!!!

    Save me a parking place!!!! grin. I rarely miss a 50% sale. Try to use those on basic stuff when ever possible. Last 50% coupon I had I bought a roll of batting.

    just think how much more expensive the next 50% sale will be when it is 50% off the new prices.

    I should have used this excuse this past week when I hit a closing Joann's and spent $112 and felt guilty about it since I hate spending on what I so enjoy. 8-)

    I agree with cjomomma: if you can afford to go on a shopping spree, ENJOY! I'd add, if you have any more space to stash some more stash... Since most of us on this site deal with "greed" not "need", we are of little support in this area (AND you MAY not be asking for help NOT to go anyway ; ) If you have the funds, then have the fun! I love the idea of cash only based on how much I could spend. AND boy, 50% is hard to pass up. We love a great deal, don't we???
