In case you haven't noticed, I'm in love with finding good sales lately! I've made it my goal to get my shopping done early this year and along the way, I've been watching out for good deals and sales and I really want to make bargain shopping a part of my normal routine. It sure won't hurt, especially if I can save a few bucks along the way.
Well, my big deal this past weekend was on Saturday at AC Moore. I did NOT go out Black Friday shopping. There was really no allure to it for me this year. I also feel that the only time Black Friday deals are really worth it are if you're out to buy electronics or appliances. Even then, the sales aren't always worth the effort you put into it.
Anyway, one big thing left on my Christmas list was Victoria's easel, which we were planning to get from AC Moore. Last Sunday, they had a 60% off coupon - and my sister-in-law and her husband were going to pick it up for me while they were out, but my printer broke, therefore my coupon was useless because I wasn't able to print it.
The Melissa & Doug stuff was BOGO Free, which is awesome. I also picked up two small photo albums, which were $1.50 for both.
The bottom line? I spent $49 plus change for over $100 in retail value!
