|This is what I do to make a "shopping list" for notions.
I use one of those little spiral notepads that can be found in a drug
or grocery store. If I need notions for a particular project, I cut a
swatch of its fabric, staple it onto a page in the notebook, and write
notes next to it saying what is needed (e.g., 9" zipper, buttons,
etc.) Once I have everything on that page and don't need it anymore,
I tear it out of the notebook. I think this will work best for people
who tend to have multiple projects going at once and buy things from
more than one store, but it should work for other purposes too. It
keeps me from buying things that don't match, or coming home from a
store and realizing I forgot to look for something.
