|So many times I stand before the thread and notion wall during the 50% off sales and wonder what should I buy. I decided to create a to buy box. All my empty needle containers, thread spools, bits of elastic, empty notion containers go in the to buy box. That way the next time I go to the 50% off sale or see some great coop buy, I'll know just what I am missing.
For elastic and interfacing, I put in some scraps to remind me that a) I am getting low and b) what kind I am getting low on.
The needle containers and empty spool threads tell me what I am using the most of so I can stay stocked up.
I also foresee putting little notes in there to remind me of larger tools that I would like in the future such as a thread cone stand. Etc.
