There are certainly things that I buy in bulk but having 2 yds of, say continuous zipper, left over when another zipped in bug net will need 6 means that it will likely sit in the 'parts drawer' for ever and ever.
Unfortunately I have to have everything shipped in from the US so I'm trying to pull the order as close to 'need' as possible while still making sure that I have sufficient quantity to do the job.
