Do you hoard supplies?

Is there a point where you stop yourself and say "if i dont make anything, i cant buy anymore"?

No never.
not here either
You never hoard or you never stop yourself? Lol
I am so bad at buying supplies for ideas i have in my head. i have cut way back, but i still buy alot.
I never stop myself hahaha. In fact, my husband and I are moving to a smaller apartment soon (booo) and I'm trying to get rid of TONS of stuff from previous projects/interests on Craigslist right now. It's not going so well, I just keep getting spammy emails. Ugh.

Anyway. I'm using the money I make from selling that stuff to, um, buy more supplies. I keep telling my husband that these supplies are smaller so it's still cutting down!
I throw nothing away, and I accept all freebies.

I am one stack of crap away from "Hoarders."

But, I am OCD about organizing, and I can lay my hands on whatever material or tool I need in minutes.
My supplies have a best before date, so I can only buy so much. Though I have a soft spot for hoarding essential oils and fragrance oils...
I try to tell myself not to buy more supplies. I tell myself "Make use of what you have," or "Wait until more products move," but in the end the other voice usually wins; the one saying "You can't sell what you don't have!"

Plus, I love to horde new beads and fancy things, it is too much fun!
I tell myself no all the time. Have for years. Then I ignore myself and buy everything I want. And then I get mad at myself and won't talk to myself.

One day I'm going to divorce me.
