I don't know about you, but I've realized that I've accumulated way too much "STASH" and am working on this problem. It's so easy to let the stash build up, it creeps up on you like a bad dream. You innocently purchase this and that with all the good intentions in the world. As for me, I get on these moments of, "Oh, oh, I've just gotta try making this" and buy all the stuff, then I find another important project to invest money into before I even get the first one accomplished! *Sigh* Then there's the projects I actually DID do, but kept buying and buying and my stash exceeded my enthusiasm. Of course, there's the "bargains" you find at times and cannot resist, so you buy 2 or 3 when you only needed 1, thinking your family or friends may be interested, too. After all, it was such a great deal!!! Yes, the stash grows like weeds sometimes!
What kind of experience do you have with stash? How do you keep it under control? Do you have any hard and fast rules about how long to keep the good stuff before parting company? I'd be interested in hearing ideas on how to better manage this problem that I believe most of us crafters find a struggle. Please feel free to leave a comment here, or contact me with your ideas and I'll pull together some of the ideas for another post one day.
So, for now, I'm starting to list my STASH for sale on Etsy. So, keep checking out my listings almost daily as I'll keep adding!
