prices on crafting tools and supplies
One thing that always puzzled me is that when ever an item is labeled as a "craft" the price is higher. Have you noticed this? For instance if you buy a tool in a craft supply store it is usually higher than the exact same tool from a home improvement store. Items like storage boxes and cabinets/tables in a home improvement store are never as high as crafting storage. I honestly think they believe that women are willing to pay more than men. I did see on TV a while back where they did a study about dry cleaners. A man took a plain white dress shirt in for cleaning. Then a woman took the very same shirt in for cleaning. They charged the woman more saying that "a woman's shirt has more contours". Remember, this was the SAME shirt. This is why I always try to "think outside the box". Ok, this item was designed for this......but what else can I use it for. A good example of this is the tackle box one woman said she used for her crafting supplies. Who cares if it isn't PINK?
