I’ve talked before about my love for crafting and projects. Always one going on, always one being planned. Always one I want to do but can’t because I’m already doing another one.
But what really stinks is some lady named JoAnn keeps taking my money for these projects.
I love the store, really, I do. For me, it’s the holy grail of craft stores. Hobby Lobby and Michael’s wish they could be JoAnn’s in my book.
But I’ll go in for a skein, maybe two. Or even come prepared with a list. Yet I come out with an armful or two, or heaven forbid a cart, and I feel justified because I had coupons.
That’s how they always get you, isn’t it? Coupons. They always get me. Now, I’m no TLC extreme couponer, but I also won’t turn down a good deal.
$5 off of $35 Sign me up. 20 percent off total purchase of non-sale priced items? Sounds perfect. 50 percent off one regular-priced item? You bet I’ll find something I need.
I know they probably get you to buy more stuff by keeping the more popular items on sale so you end up buying something else because you have the coupon.
Am I mad about it? A little. But let me tell you, nine times out of 10, it doesn’t stop me. I can always find something I need.
My yarn stash may take up too much space and my craft bag may be overflowing, but I’m just that much more prepared for any future projects. Except, of course, when I need that one specific color or needle size.
Good thing for coupons.
