Is it bad....

That I spent a bunch of money at Michaels because I got gift cards for the grocery store?

I figured I had saved so much money at the grocery stores between my four gift cards that my family and boss got for us, that I could spend some extra at Michaels. I got Four new stamps, three new embossing powders and five new ink pads. I only spent about $75 when all was said and done because the stamps were all 40% off. My sister just shook her head.

Ok, Erin, now that's funny. I have yet to find the Lucky's giftcard my Mom got us for x-mas (don't know if I'll ever find it and not very happy about that), but I got a $70 gift certificate for Richard's, I guess it works out the opposite for me. LOL

LOL Aja. I got a $100 for Lucky and $70 for Trader Joe's.

So I figure I'm really saving money by only spending $75 at Michaels. Because I would spend a lot more than that at the grocery store.
