Joann's Haul

On a trip to Joann's a few days ago I stopped by their clearance section and hit pay dirt! I had to do a bit of digging around, but I found everything below for $1.10!!! Yep, one dollar and ten cents. Two note pads with two magnets included for $0.25 each. One notepad for $0.10. A set of 8 note cards for $0.10 and four 4 packs of magnets for $0.10.

I always go through lots of these types of things, both for list making for myself as well as small gifts for others. I tend to look on Freecycle and Craigslist for free items and whenever I go and pick something up I leave a small little gift with a note. I appreciate people's generosity and like to give a little something in return.


  1. I got a few cool things on clearance at Joannes yesterday also.
    Candle scents and dyes for .25
    a bag of wooden spools for .99 ~ of course I bought them all since they will make pretty garlands.
    I work at Michaels arts and crafts and am constantly buying the mark downs ~ I NEED TO STOP!! : )
    You are right though, they make sweet little thank you's.

  2. yahoo for you! I know where I need to stop by today.... :)

  3. I like the idea of giving thank you notes when you pick stuff up from Freecycle. I've picked up stuff on several occasions - it worked great. I got rid of stuff once and was amazed at how quickly I got requests - but frustrated with how rude the first requester was - and despite my efforts to weed him out and give the stuff to someone nicer he ended up getting the stuff because he was ready to go and what could I say? No?

  4. Wow! You did good! Those will make wonderful gifts!

  5. Sales like that make me very happy. Great finds!


I treasure your comments!
