Money-Saving Monday: Black Friday Edition


Happy Monday and happy Thanksgiving week to all of you in the USA!  Turkey day is this Thursday, and then one of my favorite "holidays" happens the next day...Black Friday!  This is a shopping day extraordinaire to all of us frugal bargain hunters! I thought I would dedicate today's Money-Saving Monday, as well as a few other posts this week to helping you find some great bargains this week!

For today, let's concentrate on Michael's Black Friday sales.  I'll work on some other stores throughout the week.


Michaels has three coupons out for your entire purchases Thursday through Saturday

Thursday November 22 - 30% off your entire purchase 4 pm - 11 pm.
Friday November 23 - 25% off your entire purchase 7 am - noon.
Saturday November 24 - 20% off your entire purchase 8 am - noon.

Since this post is about Black Friday, I'm going to be concentrating on giving you prices using Friday's 25% off coupon. Personally, I'm not crazy about stores making their employees work on Thanksgiving just for the pursuit of the almighty dollar, so I won't be shopping until Friday.  The extra 5% just isn't worth it to me. *stepping down off my soapbox now*

Cricut cartridges - $24.99 (reg price $49.99)
Cricut cartridges - $19.99 (reg price $39.99)
Teal Cricut Expression 2 Limited Edition with French Manor cartridge in box - $179.99
Craft Storage, entire stock 50% off (62% off with coupon!)
Plastic rolling organizers - 60% off (70% off with coupon)
Celebrate It Holiday Ribbon Bow-Tique 60 % off (70% off on Friday as a doorbuster with no coupon)
Sizzix, Spellbinders and Cuttlebug Machines and accessories (excludes Tim Holtz) - 40 % off (55% off with coupon)
Recollection scrapbook albums 3 for $10 ( reg $9.99 each, $2.50 each after coupon)
Entire stock scrapbook albums - 50% off (62% off with coupon)
Scrapbook paper pads - 50% off ( 62% with coupon)
Photo boxes 6 for $10 ( $1.25 each with coupon)
Fiskars 3-piece scrapbook set (trimmer, scissors and knife) $24.99 ($18.74 after coupon)

The following are buy one get one free and Michaels will not normally let you use a coupon for these items:
Entire stock scrapbooking stickers and embellishments
Gift Albums
Rubber, clear and cling stamps

On Saturday, there will be a couple of great doorbusters, but remember, you can't use coupons with them so prices are as follows:
Recollections stickers and embellishments - 60 % off
Iris 12 x 12 scrapbook case - $2.99 each

Also, the first 100 people in the store each day will receive a FREE Godiva chocolate bar...YUM!

Please keep in mind that prices may vary regionally so it's possible you might find some slightly different prices in your area.  Also, if you're thinking my math doesn't look quite right (50% off + 25% off coupon = 62% off?) please see my explanation at the end of THIS POST.

Happy Shopping!
and
Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
