- buying fabric becomes a hobby in itself
- you go to de-stash some fabric and can't bear the thought of selling
- you spend close to three hours in a car in the hope to snare some bargains at a chain store relocation sale
I only bought 21 metres though, at $1 a metre. I saved more money (over $150 if you base it on the original price) than I spent on fuel (less than $20). Hopefully it was worth the whinging from a little boy for half the trip.
