Having an artistic hobby can have remarkable and right impact on your mood, mind and full happiness. But if you love crafting and creating things with hands then you have likely noticed that craft supplies are not affordable and the costs can fast add up. The best news is that there are actually many simple ways to save money on craft supplies with coupon codes to make it extra affordable.
It sound horrible but doing a quick Google search can generally get you 10-15 percent off codes for free. Often stores release them themselves and other voucher places pick them up! These are particularly helpful if you are doing online shopping!
Pick the time of year to shop and you could be on to a winter! Stores discount on seasonal items heavily once the season is over so think of it. You will find discounted as much as 80 and 90 percent after Christmas or other general crafting holidays!
Buy in bulk
I forever buy craft supplies in bulk! It is the most affordable way and you end up with a best amount saved up to last a while! Just be smart about it. Things like pompoms, glitter and colored card are all items that you will use them and time again.
Have specific projects in mind
If you go to the craft store without a specific project in mind, you are going to be linked to all the shiny things and spend way more cash than necessary. Before you leave, research the project and make a list of only things you need to perform the project.
Know what you already own
Before you go to the store to get supplies for a new project, take inventory of what you already have so you do not have to waste cash buying doubles of what you already have.
Upcyling is a thrill way to make special pieces of art and save cash at the same time. I love to scour flea markets, second-hand stores, and yard sales for treasures that I can use in my pieces. Sometimes, you can even find things for free, like driftwood to make image frames
