Okay, for those of you who do not know me – I do NOT enjoy shopping. Seriously, UGH! The only shopping I enjoy is online shopping so I can just stay where I am! Can you say “I love you Amazon!”. However, I will shop at a bookstore! I do love a good Barnes & Noble on a rainy night. That did not happen though :-(. However, I bit the bullet and went shopping tonight.
I have to say – I love a good sale! To be honest with you, I thought I would just be happy because PetSmart was having a sale and I needed to stock up on kitty litter and food. Also, I planned on buying a new toy because I know the cat is going to be ticked when I leave. A little bribery with a new toy can’t hurt, right? Anyhow, I was in and out of there in a heartbeat. It really wasn’t bad. Maybe the rain had something to do with it, and no one wanted to bring their pets out in the rain.
Next, Hobby Lobby. I very rarely go there people. Seriously, I don’t. I love being creative, but never think to go there. Usually I head to Micheals. Well, I think I may try Hobby Lobby next time I feel the urge to get crafty! Can you say MEGA SALE! I really had no list. Well, I came out with good stuff! If you need to keep kids
yourself sane, head to Hobby Lobby as they have all summer crafts on sale. I mean 66% off – why 66%??? I have no idea as that seemed odd, but WOW! I managed to pick up some awesome craft kits for VBS. I mean I got a kit that makes 24 treehouse name tags. The regular price was $7.99. NO WAY people! I paid $2.63. That made me happy! I also found another craft kit that will go along with our theme for the same price so picked it up. You can’t go wrong on that! Plus, they had really good heavy duty construction paper on sale for 71 cents! That is a bargain people! So, I did manage to get a few things. Plus I found a few things to finish up VBS decorating ideas. By the way, that is coming along well. I had a vision in my head, but was not sure how to get it out. I am happy to say that it is coming along nicely. I got a ton of work done. I love it when the visions inside my head come out looking almost the same :-).
So, I think if you don’t enjoy shopping and rarely go – maybe you should. You might be surprised at a good sale going on. Now, I had to stop at the grocery store too – no sales there haha. But I did manage to get what I needed to get.
Now, it is time to go to sleep. I am working with a friend tomorrow at a local park program. We are giving away free books to encourage children to read over the summer. I will blog about Duffy Books in Homes USA tomorrow. I am excited and hope to see some of my students tomorrow! I will let you know!
Anyone else score on some good sales today?
