Here we go again. We are talking about clearance tags. Oh come on! Whose heart doesn’t start racing when they see that yellow, red or orange clearance tags?!
On Wednesday I was killing time while Ms. Firecracker (8 ) and Ms. Lovebug (6) were at gymnastics practice. Four hours of sitting at the gym with a 23 month old gets old very quickly. Anyhoo, this time I went to Hobby Lobby to burn some time. I made it most of the way through the store without putting a thing into my buggy. I was so proud of myself. You know what they say. Pride comes before a fall. That is when I fell. I saw them. Clearance tags. I just couldn’t help myself! But oh, the frugalness of it all.
There were the coolest looking erasers that were $3.oo, down to $.18 for 2! For some reasons erasers disappear quickly in this house. I am guessing the kids are eating them.
Next, we have Sharpie poster paint markers. These are great for the kids when they are feeling artsy-craftsy. They can also use them in scrapbooks because they don’t bleed through paper. They were $3.49 each. I paid $ .64 each.
And then we have erasable correction pencils. The kids hate my red pen. These pencils are bright purple, so they are easily seen, and they were $3.29. I paid 1.19 for each package. I have already used them and am loving them!
The next two purchases are the ones my kids are excited about. They are brush marker/ pens. Markers/ pens that work like a paint brush. I got a package of bright colors and one of muted colors. The bright ones were almost $16, but I paid $5.75. The muted ones were almost $10, and I paid $2.75. These will be going to the gym with us to entertain the kids.
The final purchase were these two glass containers. They were 50% off. That knocked them down to $1.49 each. I have a very specific purpose in mind for them. You will see that come my Tackle it Tuesday post! Haha!
All totaled up: I got over $50 worth of school/ art and organizing supplies for less than $16 with tax.
PS- these were all things I was looking to buy but hadn’t because I wasn’t willing to pay full price.
Have you had any great deasl lately? 🙂
