We all know how expensive it can be to find the tools we need to keep ourselves up-to-date and organized. Add up the costs of various diaries, planners, calendars, software and cases and the totals can really mount up. But it shouldn’t have to cause chaos to your bank balance to get your day-to-day activities in order.
Price — Some beads are easy to price compare. If you want to buy Swarovski Crystallized Elements they are uniform in color and size so it’s easy to find the online bead store with the best price (don’t forget to factor in shipping cost). For other types of beads, it’s not as easy to be sure you’re getting the right price. But you can still compare based on the description of the item. I recently purchased mixed gemstone donuts from 2 different sites — the quality from each was comparable, but the price was higher on one — and not only did the higher priced supplier have a higher shipping cost, they also charged a handling fee. When you know the type and size of the bead you want to buy online, price comparing is much easier.

My friend makes his living on the internet, so I knew I could trust him when he showed me how to save money by using coupons from eBay. Now, do not take it personally.
Size — the sizing of beads is tricky for those of us in the U.S because beads are sized according to the metric system and we learned to size things in inches. You need to know that 4mm is a pretty small bead and that 30mm is fairly large. And it’s not just beads sized this way. Many of the findings you use when beading are sized in millimeters like wire and jump rings. Find a good online bead size chart (Google “bead size chart” and images) before buying beads and beading supplies online.
