As I was putting away all my craft supplies after our move, I got to thinking- I have A LOT of craft supplies! I have already briefly addressed my habit of accumulating an unnecessary amount of crafting supplies in my previous post, so I got to thinking. What if… for a whole year I didn’t buy any more crafting supplies, and only used what I had? Crazy and extreme, I know! But I think it would be a good idea for a couple of reasons:
1) It will make space for more…. Just kidding! But it would help if it took up less space. So if I use it up without replenishing = more space!
2) It will challenge me to create within restrictions. From my experience, that is usually when I come up with the best and most creative ideas.
3) It will reinforce my “consume less” attitude that I already apply to other aspects of my life.
So- will it be difficult? You bet! But I am willing to give it a try. I know 1 year is a long time, but I figured with the size of my stash it will definitely last me that long. Also, a caveat- gifts don’t count! (Haha you knew there had to be a loop hole!).
Feel free to tag along with me on this challenge, or share your experiences of working from your stash!
