Sales...coupons...clearances...all that stuff that you can use to save money at the supermarket works just great at the craft store too!
If I had just wandered in and bought these things without sales, coupons and clearance markdowns, I would have spent about $85.00. I got everything here for right around $25.00 - roughly 70% off.
A few close-ups:
The nice lady at Jo-Ann's said that this time of year, they are clearing out all sorts of things throughout the store, so whatever it is that you love to do, check for markdowns.
Have you used clear stamps? They're awfully fun - easier too!
I've also gotten a nice big pile of art books from the library, full of ideas and inspiration. I'm eager to try a few new techniques.
I fed my family this week too, and we stocked up on a few bargains. There were some great deals on HBA items - free toothpaste, free deodorant, but truth be told, I'm happiest about the craft supplies. Check the sales in your area, then get back here on Wednesday for "What'cha Workin' On Wednesdays" and share your latest projects with us. :)
