Coupons, Cotton and Towels


I don't know why I'm always a month late buying my Joann's Spring/Summer coupons.  Maybe it's because I don't go out shopping much in February since it's so cold!  The sun was shinning yesterday so I stopped by Joann's while I was out on errands.  I found my favorite Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Fusion magazine.  My shop places it on top of the pattern cabinets.  I buy it just for the coupons on the back.  You get two 50% off and 4 40% off coupons.  I think it's getting harder to find items not on sale at Joann's to be able to use the coupons.  I find myself running around trying to find something not on sale because "I got a coupon I need to use :-)"

As I mentioned before, I use these at Michael's and other craft shops too!  They are great to put in your purse and have handy at all times.  The Fashion Fusion magazines are $2.99 each and the coupons are good from 2/19-6/16!  The downside are the exclusions printed on the coupons:  Can not be used on sale items and can not be used on:  "Accuquilt Go products, Provo Craft electronic machines, Cricut cartridges, Slice machine and cartridges, sewing machines and sewing machine department merchandise amount other smaller items.  I've used them on expensive markers at Michael's etc.  Be creative.


Also, I bought a bunch of misc sale items already on 40 & 50% off.  When I see all the decorative finger towels they have for the holidays I say, I can make that.  Then I say, forget that, I can buy it cheaper than making it unfortunately so I bought a few finger towels for my bathrooms.


Maybe I was sleeping when there was a cotton shortage or something but I went in the back to pick up some more Warm and Natural Queen size batting packages with my coupon.  When I got there, I only saw one or two packages and the price said $44+ dollars.  It was on sale for 40% of but, I don't remember paying $25+ for queen batting with coupons.  I was not 100% sure it was the same as I usually buy, so I walked away.  When I did, I spied some clearance bamboo batting.  I always wanted to try this and they had craft size 35x45 packages on clearance for $4.97 instead of $17+ original price.  So, I bought two to try it out. 

Thanks for stopping by!
