At your Michael's, you were allowed to purchase items that rang up as a penny? Mine won't sell those.

You got an awesome haul!

Yay! don't you just love an awesome shopping day??

Problem is, it makes paying 40 or even 50% off seem like a rip off

wow...great haul. i wish our michael's was as giving as yours. All of the ones near me will only let you get the 90% off on items that are in the front of the store. All other clearance is priced as marked. In fact, one store manager balked at giving me a rubber stamp for 70% off, even though the sign specifically said to do so. Again, great haul and enjoy your goodies!

I was at my local Ms on Wednesday and they had only junk stuff on clearance. My store never has anything good. They are an older, smaller store and even during normal times, it is completely picked through.

Good for you on your haul!

What a great haul! You've inspired me to go to Ms today and check it out. I went in there the other day for something specific and didn't even look at the clearance and now I'm regretting it!

Your blog refuses to load for me. I get some of it like the background and I can see there's text but there's no background for the text, just the page background and no scrollbar loads. I can only see the very top of the video window. Luckily, I can click that and it brings me to youtube.
I'm afraid to go because 1. I won't be as lucky and/or 2. I don't need more crap. Though, damn, now I'm wondering if I could've gotten the spellbinders set even cheaper that's on clearance!
The email does say 'select items' though.


BTW - not all New Englanders say 'idear'. Nor is it just NE'ers.

BTW - anyone who finds and gets stuff for a penny is lucky. I think they don't have to sell it to you. It's reported as unsold and trashed (rather than the expense of returning to manufucturer I think). It's probably got a penny on it for inventory/reporting purposes.

I hit 4 Michaels in the area and I suggest all Cameo owners RUN do not walk to Michaels and snag the YUDU all-purpose cutting mats and YUDU adhesive sheet two packs. The cutting mats work beautifully in the Cameo and the two sided adhesive sheets cut like buttah. I snagged 6 mat packs (18 cutting mats), and 9 tubes (18 sheets) of double sided adhesive sheets for a total of $4.30! At one Michaels, they had Ranger Inks, Distressed Stain, and Distressed Ink Pads at 90% - so I snagged a collection of these as well. Total bill - under $10 bucks. I had to dig through the crap - but it was totally worth it.

Went over to my local store and they only had junk. As some others have said, the 70 and 90% was only for certain bins at the front of the store and other clearance on the raks was only as marked.

Still, I'm glad I went as I picked up the Fiskars compact stamp press that Jennifer Maguire has convinced me that I need : for $6, some cheaper embossing folders, embossing powder and a cute cheap stamp set, so it was worth it for sure.

Then I made the mistake of heading into target and blowing a giant wad on clearance clothes for my kids for next season. It will be well appreciated next year, but I wanted more craft stuff

2. The white scrapbook organizing jetmax things - the magazine holder (4 slots for magazines) is 90% off too!!

Total score again today!

I guess some people just got really lucky.

I had them scan a few items that were clearance but on their regular pegs, and no such luck. Though I did buy 2 sets at the clearance price.

I did get 2 of those mini rolls of ribbon for a penny. They rang up at 14c but they had a red sticker so I pointed out that it should be like 5c (90% off the 49c clearance price). Instead of overriding it she took 90% off the 14c price.

I picked up 2 packages of Yudu flocking and 1 of foil. I don't have a Yudu but I do have the Plaid screen-it adhesive. I also got this Brides invitation kit for 99c. And I can use them for regular cardmaking. Maybe I'll do Easter cards with the large flower printed cards (without the white printable part that goes inside - those can be used for more cards.)

Anyway, definitely not the huge finds the OP got.

I hit 2 Michaels this morning. Not much luck. I did get a couple of 50% off Valentine pads that I had my eye on. What is odd to me though is that at one store their Valentine's things were 40% off and another it was 50% off. Is that typical??? I did get some MS paper tape for 90% off because it had been marked with the clearance stickers (my guess is it was a mistake) but they were "kind" and honored the sale price along with the other MARKED clearance. If it didn't have a sticker on it they weren't having any part of a discount!!! Mostly just tacky leftovers in front of the store.

Thanks OP and other enablers!!! It was a fun outing anyway!!!

After reading this post this morning I headed out and went to 4 different stores.

First one had a bunch of stuff outside for 90% off and stuff by the front entrance for 70% off. Did find the Bella Rouge 12x12 stack for .01. Got a bunch of stamps for 1.49 and 2.99 (not in the clearance area)

Second store only picked up a couple of small things.

Third store was lucky to get three of those black 12x12 Recollections paper storage boxes for 49 cents each. I had also picked up some rhinestone packages that were priced on sale for 1.49 and she also decided to give me the additional 70% off.

Fourth store I picked up some cheap 8x10 picture frames for a nickel each.

Lets just say that I am surprised that it is up to the manager to price things. At 3 of the stores they had Wilton cake decorating things on sale for 1.99 and the 3rd store that I went to had them for 19 cents.

Most of the really great stuff was early in the week. But I have three Michaels close by. Was told by a manager that the difference in what was in stock and pricing was due to how the store inventoried. I found some amazing deals on all kinda of things including bling, flowers, paper, stickers and ribbon. I got 15 rolls of small ribbon alone for4 cents each! I'm hoping they do this more often!

Here's what I got for my grand total of $2.48:

- 1 mint-colored craft pen (will use this a lot since mint is my go-to scrappy color right now, and it was only $0.10)
- 15 rolls of washi tape (some in two-packs, some in three-packs; most were solid colors, which I actually have been wanting, a few were patterned)
- 1 roll of mint with tiny white polka dots MS patterned paper (I don't know if this is self-adhesive or what, but for $0.35 I figured I'd give it a try)
- 1 package of K&Co Valentine's Day truffle chipboard shapes
- 1 roll of Recollections glitter tape

The K&Co shapes, Recollections glitter tape, and a few of the washi tapes are for my Mom - we are celebrating her birthday this week, and I'm going to add them to the present I got her. After I got out of M's, I went to Target and found Lindt and Godiva candy bars on clearance on an end cap, so I'm adding those to her present, too!

The only thing I was disappointed with was the 6x6 pads in the OP's video weren't on clearance at my M's. Other than that, I was happy to get all that stuff for $2.48!

At my store the washi and stamps are still only 70% off. They do have a lot of other things for 90%. I picked up a few of the extended cuttlebug plates, an alphabet and a platform for 99cents.

I am going to check back tonight and see if they have the paper and drawers for 90% here. I didn't know about them so I didn't look earlier.

My granddaughter and I went tonight. I didn't have much $$ to spend, so I was basically just looking! I did find several things for cheap. Beware though, 2 of the rubber stamps I got rang up regular price $7.99 and $9.99. Glad I caught that before I got home!

My M's didn't have much left today...I did get my dgd a cute American Crafts frame (has some interchangable embellishments in it) for $ .99, it was orig $29.99 (I wouldn't have paid that). Got a cpl ditto stamp sets for .59/ea, few rubber mtd stamps for $1.19/ea, an Ed Hardy planner for .90, an Ed Hardy magnetic wall board w/magnets for .90. Those were the only 90% off items. I got some clearance washi for $2.49 two pk....but since they were not red stickered, they were not further discounted. I also picked up some recollections self adhesive lace on a roll....about 15 rolls for .79/ea and a cpl recoll lace and crystal boards for .99/ea. I was hoping to find some of the 6x6 paper pads, but mine didn't have any. Still worth the trip
