And there you have it, Kittens. After 3 quarters in the green and slowly chipping away at my stash, I had to make some large purchases –and reclaim a large chunk of that yardage via frogging (think the year’s net stash change minus about 200yds)–this quarter. As a result, I’m in the red for the year. Boo. Totals have been edited 18 May 2011 after deciding to go ahead and use an item that was in the frog pile to be reclaimed.

While I’m sad about this, I’m also trying to be positive: my rate of acquirance in 2010 was much slower then 2009. I didn’t technically have a StashWIN! sort of year, but I did take the first steps in slowing down the thoughtless buying and became more deliberate in my purchases.
You better believe you’ll be seeing more stash tracking in 2011. I’m actually pretty pumped about it. In 2011, that net stash change will be green.


Kittens, I’m going to do my best to do some 2010 wrap-up posts before it ends tomorrow tonight. However, my in-laws are in town and I’ve been attempting to avoid being rude and hide from them. I might try to make an exception for a short time tomorrow, though, just for you. ♥

You should be seeing at least one post from me but in case I can not get to more, Happy New Year!
