I'm breaking my one post a week rule today to show you what I found at Michaels' yesterday.
The Martha Stewart punches have been on clearance for a while now and it seems that they have been marked down more. With the exception of the Barn corner punch ($6.99) and the ABC Border punch ($5.99) I found these punches for $4.99 each. I believe that the previous marked price was $6.99 and that is down from the original price of $12.99. Michaels' will probably mark them down further in a couple of weeks but I didn't want to risk not finding them later so I bought them. I was particularly happy about finding the cupcake corner punch because I already have the cupcake border edge punch.
There were several other sets at my local M's but these are the ones I came home with.
I am aware that the reviews for the MS glue pad are mixed but I thought I would give it a try when it rang up at $2.49. I've never bought Stampology inkpads before but at $0.99 each, I could always give them to my kids if I didn't like them.
My favorite purchase was probably the Strathmore Art Pad. I had used these 9"x12" papers for the Class Memory Book Covers and I love how thick the papers are. The other paper pack was only $1.99 and my 20% coupon took off another $0.40.
The K&Co 12"x24" paper pad is $6.99 (down from $19.99) and the TPC Studio paper was $2.99
My local Michaels' store is putting out a lot of new stock including the new EK Success Cupcake Chain Large Border Punch. I did not buy it yesterday but I am pretty sure I'm getting it some time.
As always, clearance items vary from store to store and I've heard that the markdowns happened a couple of days ago. Please don't make a special trip to look for any for these but if you happen to go to the store, you might want to take a closer look at the clearance section.
That's all for today. Now to get back to entertaining the kids...
