Take the pledge in 2012

Fran "The Lady of Lost Times" has set a challenge on her blog to cut craft spending. To use the items you already own, recycle and reuse instead of buying. I already use recycled things a lot and I am an avid charity shop rummager, even a spot of skip diving is not out of the question for that bird cage sitting at the bottom of the skip, but even so I still spend too much, so I pledge this year to cut my craft spending even further.

I'm in the UIU too! Can't wait to see what comes from your stash and trash!
I definately will get some hard moments but I'm strong and willing right now to make a dent in my stash! :)

I've joined up too - it's gonna be really tough.
Only done two days and I've been tempted to buy things twice already - eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek we've gotta support each other.

Hello, found your blog through folksy friday.
in 2011 my new year resolution was i couldnt buy any new craft items until i had used something old from my stash.
(I tend to save alot). It was amazing and really enjoyed it.
I am continuing it this year. I actually used more and brought less.
