More Fabric....................40%, is a good deal or not?

Call me crazy.....okay, probably most people do.....but I just can't seem to pass up a 40% coupon at Joann's! IT IS, truely, crazy......because the discount only applies to non-sale items and most items in that store are on Sale. The items that aren't on sale are usually the ones that are way out of my budget anyway...........and yet........I can't help myself.

I'm beginning to wonder if I should start FBA (Fabric Buyers Anonymous). We could all meet at the discount fabric stores and train ourselves to pass up the 40% addiction. We could also meet at the library and educate ourselves on the benefits of shopping online.

My husband asked me last night why I couldn't find bargain fabric online. My only response was, "I can't feel or touch the fabric online!" I don't know....was that a lame excuse? I also told myself, "Self, you really can't coordinate colors online either." Again, is that just a cop-out?

Tell me fellow shoppers and you have this same predicament? Is there a simple solution that seems to be escaping me? Maybe it's simple. Maybe all I need to do is stop checking my mail and stop reading my email. Or, maybe I should begin steps to improve my will-power.......OHHHHH, that could help in many areas of my life......and throw the flyers in the trash.

But, until I come up with a productive band-aid for my quandary Joann Fabrics will be a good stock option for the rest of you as I will be keeping them afloat.
