The sales and shopping actually started yesterday on Thanksgiving. I went to Michaels at 5pm since they had storage supplies on sale for 55% off. I wanted a container for my paper and I decided on just two separate pieces. Since it was my anniversary (17 years!), my hubby said, "Get Whatever" and then he helped me put the cubes together. Thank you honey!

Last night around 11:15pm, we went to Walmart since I wanted to get a Cricut Lite cartridge before they sold out. I already knew which one I wanted (Four Legged Friends). When we got there I saw the others. It sure is hard when you are standing with all of them on display in front of you and then to have to pick only one. My hubby knew I was having a difficult time deciding (It is like the cereal aisle...too many choices.). Since it was still my anniversary he said, "Okay" which means... I got two...Four Legged Friends and Jolly Holiday. Yeah!
This morning we headed out again to get some more deals for the family. Of course, I had to stop at Joanns at 6am and Michaels just after that. Well, I am glad we did! Joanns offered a free $5 gift card to the first 50 people. That was an unexpected surprise! We each got one and my husband said it wasn't even that bad going! : ) I was able to get some embossing folders for 75% off, buttons were BOGO free, and the Nifty Fifty cartridge was on sale for $27.99 (but it was actually $17.99 because of the gift cards). We saved the $10.00 and I agreed to put that cartridge away for Christmas.

Then we went to Michaels and I had to get the ribbon for 70% off. I got about 10 rolls. I picked up a paper cutter, a tool kit, and two ribbon racks that were all on sale. I was also able to use a 25% off coupon. That is another yeah!

What a great day for bargains! When I got home from shopping I had an e-mail requesting 2 dozen holiday cards. I am extremely excited and will be ready to start tomorrow. I definitely need to get some rest tonight before I start!
Oh, I need help with this also...what is a good price to charge for a large amount of cards? Do you charge for each card or by bulk? HELP! This is a first and I hope there will be more offers to come.
I sure hope you had a marvelous Thanksgiving and were able to find some amazing deals too. Please share any of your special finds! My friend, Yvette at The Little Things, got another Cricut Expression (a purple one). I wonder if she is going to be able to use it for the Snowy Winter Hop on December 4th or if she has to wait until Christmas. I'll be sure to ask her when she gets back from visiting her grandmother (Remember that amazing memory book she made for her?).
