I've only just recently started couponing, but I've always been a girl who loves a good deal. I mean, don't we all?
Well if you're looking for some good craft deals, you need to hightail it to Michael's. I went there yesterday to get some supplies for Mer's shower and a couple's shower I helping host and decided to check out the sales advertised in the Sunday paper as well. I have to say, I feel like I hit the motherload.
I walked out with a total of $27.82 and a savings of $40.01! Let me show you what all I got.
Here's the rundown:
6 Memory/Photo boxes-I love to use these instead of photo albums. They are much more stylish and efficient with space. They are also great for hiding and storing any unsightly things you might need within reach. Here they are displayed on our desk in our old house. At a price of 6/$10 I just couldn't pass them up. They are regularly $4 each.
4 spools of ribbon-All half off. These will be for food labels and decoration.
16 sheets of scrapbook paper-They were 6/$1, normally .59 each. I'll use these to create a banners like these.
1 ball of yarn-I used my 50% off coupon from their flyer. This will be used to make the wreath mentioned here.
1 pack of lollipop sticks-I used another 50% coupon from online.
2 stamps-On sale for $1 each.
20 foam brushes- These were 20/$1, regularly .39 each. I thought they'd be great for craft projects, craft parties (I need to host one of these for my girlfriends) or for a kids party or playtime.
Not too bad for less than $30 right? I'm very pleased considering what the total would if not for the sales and coupons ($67.83). I'd say that's a success. All of the deals run through Saturday, so go check them out!
Alright, now I'm off to work to on some projects with my new supplies!
