Prices

Every time I go to the grocery store it seems like prices are up and of course we all know what the prices have been like at the gas pumps. I make adjustments that I can like combining errands and basically just driving less and also clipping coupons and buying multiples of things we use a lot if I see a good sale.

Of course since quilting is my hobby plus I made things for craft shows to sell the prices of fabric going up and up is really getting to me. I went to JoAnns yesterday. Remember when you could find $3.99 and $4.99 fabrics? Those would be the ones I would buy when I needed yardage for backings especially.

Everything is now $5.99 and up with a couple of rare bolts at the $4.99 level.

I guess as the prices continue to raise I am going to have to raise my craft show prices but that will eventually get to the point where people won't want to pay what I need to charge.

Sure hope this is the last jump in cotton for awhile!!

You are so correct. The prices have to stop somewhere. We will all be stranded in our homes. Everything is going up.
