Coupons and Blog Candy...What More Could A Girl Want?
Hi blog friends! As promised, I went to check out this week's sales yesterday at Joann's I didn't find anything too exciting. There were a lot of people out in the blogosphere talking abut great clearance sales. Lucky you!! I couldn't find ANYTHING on clearance at my local Joann's. (*insert sad face here!*)
So this week, Joann's has the majority of their scrapbooking supplies on sale for 40% off. If you combine that with the Michael's coupon that's valid this week, you should be able to get a good deal on some supplies. A few things I found:
DCWV paper stacks are on sale for $9.99. Combine that with the Michael's coupon and you can pick them up for $7.99 each. That's usually my buy price!
50 count packages of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock are on sale for $2.49 (regularly $3.99.) Combined with the Michael's coupon, you can get them for $1.99 each. I've seen them cheaper, but this is a great price if you're running low.
I noticed all of the Cricut supplies are 25% off. This might be tricky with the coupon...here's why. When Joann's has their own coupons out, their "fine print" states that the coupon can't be used for Cricut ELECTRONIC items or cartridges. So you can still use the coupon for Cricut SUPPLIES, like mats and blades and tools. The Michael's coupon specifically says that the coupon isn't good on "all Cricut products." So Joann's may or may not honor your Michael's coupon for Cricut supplies. If not, it's no biggie though. You can do just as well (if not better) waiting for the Cricut supplies to go OFF sale, and then use one of Joann's 40% or 50% off coupons. Most Joann's stores will even let you use multiple coupons for multiple items...they just have to ring each item and coupon up separately. (In my experience, Michael's is WAY more strict about multiple coupons and normally won't let you use more than one.)
Okay...enough confusing stuff!!
If you've made it through all that and are still reading (whew!) don't forget about the Old School Blog Hop in a few days! It's August 5th and 6th. It's my first blog hop to participate in and I'm so excited!! I picked one of my favorite old cartridges to do my project with! Oh, and I do believe I'm going to be giving away my first ever blog candy! Woohoo!! So don't forget to check back this weekend!!
