Got some good deals at Michaels today!

My parents live two minutes from Michaels...can you even imagine?? LOL I'd be in so much trouble...maybe it's better that it's an hour and a half from me. Smile I got a 40.00 gift card and got some good deals today. Got the Xyron 250 for 10.00 with a 50% off coupon. Got some cardstock for cardmaking, some page protectors for scrapping, five boxes of adhesive squares, and some ribbon for my baby girl's hair. All for 40.00!! Yahoo I am soooo totally ready to get home to get all my scrappin stuff set up and use it.

Now to work on storing it all. Smile

That's great Carrie!! I so can't wait for you to get home too. Wink I can't wait to see what you come up with!! And for you to play with your Expressions.

Ashley, you live 2 minutes away? How do you contain yourself? I would go nuts. God intended for me to live 1.5 hours away! hehe

Actually, where I grew up, there is a Michael's about 6 blocks away (but you have to cross major routes so you have to drive). It's easy to get to and when I visit my parents I'm tempted, but then I always think to myself "But Michael's is RIGHT HERE. It's not like it'll be difficult to come back if I need something else." I actually buy less because I don't feel in that "Well it'll be months before I'm back here, better stock up just in case" mode.

How exciting! I love good deals! I always find myself buying too many papers and embelishment type things instead of "tools" though. Seems more justified somehow to spend a few dollars here and there Wink

I have a Hobby Lobby and Michael's both within 5 miles of home! I'm sure DH wishes that they were an hour away though! Wink Sounds like you got some great deals! Isn't it just fun to go up and down the scrapbook aisles?

I think you're right Michelle, that it would be better to be closer. I shopped thinking I won't be back for awhile, hence buying 5 boxes of adhesive squares. Smile But it's so fun to just walk up and down the aisles. I NEVER knew there was so much paper to be had. Smile LOL Sooooo fun!!

yay!! I am excited for you at the thought of new stuff! Biggrin
I have a Michael's right up the street....but I think the worst was when we lived 3 or so doors down from Dollar Giant which had loads of scrapping stuff and everything is only one dollar. Tht was my biggest stumbling block lol

I have to admit, having a Michaels, Joann's and about three other scrapbooking stores within a 5-15 mintue drive is convenient but not always so easy on my pocket book. But now that my mom has come over and helped me organize I can see how much I have and I will be staying out of those stores for a while, well two or three weeks anyways. Hahaha.

What great finds!

I live within 10 miles of a Hobby Lobby, Michael's and several scrapbook stores...It is a wonderful thing, but also a curse Smile What I really like about it is the fact that I have a lot of variety!
