Let’s start off by saying I am cheap. I love sales, I love discounts, I love coupons, I hardly ever buy anything for full price. I am the proud owner of 4 different dresses I purchased for 5 dollars each. We stock up on non-perishables when they go on sale. I go to Goodwill and the ReStore before hitting up Target, Walmart, or Hobby Lobby.
That being said, I went to Hobby Lobby today for lace. I needed it for an Etsy order and of course I used the last of it last week on a greeting card. Normally I wander and end up with things I didn’t go in for, so today I made up my mind to go straight to the fabric department and leave.
Surprise, surprise, that did NOT happen. I got the lace and immediately thought “What else do I need? Nothing. wait, I thought of something before I left the house. Oh well. Must not have been important. I wonder what I can find for the mantel!” I made my way through the frame section ((I have this vision for over our fireplace. It’s all sizes mismatched frames in black and white&a wedding photo in the middle.)) Scoffed at the prices, resolved to come back when they were half off and get the two 10x20s and one 12×30 I had my eye on.
Did you know Hobby Lobby has a Home Decor 66% Off aisle every now and then? I found a frame I wanted SO bad, but even 66% off it was 77.42$. Nope. I ended up finding these things – two gorgeous vases, two glass candlesticks, and a wooden ampersand – for a total of 25$. Normally full price they would’ve all been 68.88$. I’m proud of myself but The Hubby will probably frown at me since they’re not exactly things we absolutely need.
That thing I thought of before I left the house? I needed a large Styrofoam ball for my snowman wreath.
