when it comes to buying beads is buying them in a mix, individual colours or kits better?

kitz are good for starting I think and get individual colorz for colorz you’d think you’d use more rainbowsmile (my preference!!! :3

I look at which colors I'm low on, and buy individual bags of those!! Sometimes I buy mixed bags, like when the beads are just black and white, but I always end up sorting them anyway lol

the kits i ordered just arrived, and the variety is great but i barely got any of each bead. maybe that's just a problem with the specific one i bought, so i'd recommend really looking at the description of any kits you plan to buy. maybe a super high bead count mixed bag would be a good idea, because then it would give you a variety of colors and lots of each.

I believe the best deals (at least online) are to buy individual colors, but this is only worth it if you want a lot of one color (like for a big project or something). Mixed bags are usually around the same price and give you a variety of colors to work with depending on the bag. I would choose to buy mixed bags to make singles and small projects or if I didn't have a particular project in mind. Kits are fun because they can come with different bead types and possibly charms, string, or other accessories. I think kits are probably the most expensive per item of the three. They make great gifts for new kandi kids or to expand someone's bead collection.
