I hate Michael's!

I know that is blasphemous around here! ROFL

I was in there for an hour last night trying to find one thing in a hurry! Our Michaels has rearranged the whole store and sorted it by themes. Argh!! So now, like the orange brads are with the Halloween stuff and the blue brads are in the "vacation" section (no clue...maybe thinking beach...water...blue...let's confuse Kelly and make her go down every aisle).

Are you serious? I spent $59 in that dang store b/c while roaming aimlessly to find what I needed (a 99 cent sheet of stickers for school :mad:) I found all kinds of stuff that I didn't! Conspiracy!!!

AC Moore supposedly has redone its scrapbooking section, but I haven't checked it out yet.

Oh, that IS annoying! That will actually probably make me less likely to shop there. A lot of times I really need to be in and out and can't spend a million years wandering around looking for what I need. Sad

I always have preferred AC Moore to Michael's...now even more reason! Smile

But I betcha got some good stuff with your $59! Wink

Hey, this is random, but did you ever try to clean your stainless pots and pans by boiling the coke in them or did you buy new ones? I was wondering about that the other day!

Yes I did and it worked pretty good. I did it twice and the 2nd time it really came off.

I'm just jealous (again) cause i have no scrapping shops near me. Theres a small section in one shop that's a 35 minute drive away and that's it. I have to do all my shopping online! Booo!

Ugh! I still don't like Walmart's remodel. I can imagine it would be worse in the craft store with all the little things.

The last time I was in michaels they were starting to rearrange and they had 1/2 there supplies in shopping carts, so you couldn't even see it. My DH was annoyed with that, and said why don't they rearrange when the store is closed. Wink

Now I probably won't go for a while, well unless I can talk someone into taking me. Wink

I usually don't even go to Micheals unless I have a % off coupon or they are having a significant sale. I don't know if it is just ours but it is really expensive compared to joanns and even archivers. Alot of the things in there are probably 20% higher than the other stores. That said, I don't go there enough to notice any changes! Biggrin
