We all know the situation, we end up with supplies we think we'll never use. Maybe you got them in a grab bag with supplies you did want. Maybe you bought them because they were just such good value (then you got them home and thought to yourself 'what was I thinking?!'). Maybe someone passed some on to you as a gift or as scraps.
So they end up resigned to an unused drawer somewhere because you don't like throwing stuff out and 'you never know!'.
Then one day you're working on a project, you're racking your brains out 'how can I make this work? What can I use??'
After a few hours of experimenting and dithering, it hits you:
'what about those wire loops / beads / brown ribbons I thought I would never use?!
Lo and behold, they come in perfect in a pinch after all. Of course this means i'm loathe to throw out anything as you really do never know!
This is me - does it sound familiar to you too?

Go forth and hoard your supplies, I say!
