The first time I went in was opening day and because it was Friday and the sale didn't start until Saturday there was NOTHING in the store on sale. I was highly disappointed but still managed to find a few things I wanted. :)
This was my second trip in and it was the grand opening day. This time it seemed the whole store was on sale! I got the cardstock for only $2.49 each. The Martha Stewart Halloween pad was on for 50% off. ($13 something) the Me and my Big Ideas Pad was 40% off $29.99. The chipboard pieces I used a 50% off coupon and got them for $4.98. The cricut cartridges...brace yourself...were only $19.99 each!!! As you can see I got a few lol!
On my third trip in Brian was with me so I had to be a little more careful. :S The Offray ribbon was 4/$1.00. As you can see I got a ton, I just love this ribbon! I got yet another cartridge for $19.99. Seriously who could pass that up?! Finally I got a couple things for my wedding. The stickers in the top picture were only .79 cents and the arch in the lower picture was on special for $29.99 and Brian actually talked me into getting it! That's a first!
By the fourth Micheals trip I was getting better but pretty much because I had bought everything else I wanted hehe. I got this Mini Monsters cartridge for $54.99. and I used another 50% off coupon for this punch and only paid around $10.00 for it.
This is a picture of the gift basket I got from the auction. I have already made a pile fo stuff from it to give to my younger cousin who has just started scrapbooking. There was a few gems I will be keeping for myself though!
