Tuesday Morning's "Haul"

I was reading an article the other day and it seems there is yet another new trend swirling around. People, excited with the bargains they've been purchasing with the ever more stretchy dollar are posting their finds online.

"Haul" videos are becoming big on You Tube, where people make videos of what they've found while shopping and share their bounty with others via the Internet. Great idea, but I don't want to be bothered with figuring out the whole deal with posting video online.

So, instead I'll post my "Hauls" here in photo format on my blog to share my deals with others. I'll tag them "Heavenly Hauls" in the future to keep them all in one easy place for viewing. Ready for my first show and tell haul?

Yesterday I went to Tuesday Morning. I've not been there in a long time. I like that store, but I honestly forget that it's there. It's location isn't in the best place, not near any other places that I frequent. However after watching a few haul videos on You Tube, many of the ladies mentioned things they'd found there so I decided to go and have a looksie.

I bought lots of fun things. I'll let you know my grand total at the end. I bought these cute Christmas-y recipe cards, 40 of them for $0.69! I give homemade food gifts quite often, so I thought that these would be cute to include with the recipe. I also got these cute scrapbook embellishments, 4 different packages. They are different than anything I have, I'm excited to figure out how to use them in a layout. Also three full sized bottles of Aleene's School/Craft glue, good stuff!!
Then I bought these cute flocked chipboard embellishments for the boys scrapbooks. Dinosaurs and rockets, perfect! Found these cute fleece flower embellishments as well, they were dirt cheap! I like them because you can stack them up to create different flowers. One of my big "scores" was this MS Living scalloped rotary cutter. I've been toying with buying one of these for awhile now, but glad I didn't because it only cost $0.99!!!

I found these beautiful invitations, set of 10 for $0.79!! They are embossed in silver script, so pretty and simple. I don't know what I'm going to use them for but for that price I couldn't pass them up. Then I got a set of 10 game cards with the shell motif on them for $0.69. I am going to use them for gift tags, will just cut a piece of cardstock to fit the inside to cover up the inside.

I got the purple post it pad for $0.29, it says "Dear Sir or Madam" on top, so cute! I'm going to give them to my Mom for work. I found the cute floral magnetic notepad with matching pencil for $0.79, it even has an monogrammed "H" on top! The black easel came home with me too, it's a good size at the price was right at $1.99.

See my grand total?!? $11.30, wooohoooo!! So excited. I think I brought home some great deals. I am going to remember that store more often now, especially if I can come home with bargains like this again.
Will be linking up to my fave save parties. Check the "Linky Parties I Love" under the FYI column on the right to see where I will be sharing my secrets!
