What supplies/tools do you hate to spend money on? (Even if one can easily afford the cost)

I dislike spending money on a pattern that looks very easy and seems to have been around for generations.

I guess batting. I buy it by the roll. When prices go up, I do actually feel a little better about it because I feel like I got a deal.

Agreed, patterns, most of the time you use it once and your done with it. Rotary cutting blades, highly over priced for a razor blade.

I agree with batting, I haven't bought it in quantity like a roll, but it did bend my mind when I bought 7 yards of it. Going to watch for the sales with the coupons. I don't see the purpose of such a wide range of rulers - how many times are you going to use that special ruler for $$$$?

Patterns for sure. There are so many free ones out there, or I can figure it out myself from a pic. Also because most patterns they say are new to me look like the oldies.

Quilt backing, I can't afford to use bright cheery prints so when I travel the 60 miles to jo anns I take the 50% off coupon and buy enough regular backing for 3-4 quilts.

Patterns that I can figure out on my own, especially when all they do is rename an old block. OK, it may take some time to calculate the yardage, but not that much time. Rulers that work for only one application.
