Total Savings: $52.04
This morning the kids and I went to JoAnn's. The trip was g-r-e-a-t!
Each kid got to ride in their own shopping cart. I got some interesting looks walking around the store, but hey- it worked. Blake didn't go flying off in one direction while I hemmed and hawed over fabric colors, I had a whole cart just for our coats and such, and I was able to completely fill the second cart with bolts of fabric. (Side note: I remember my mom not using a cart and making me be her bolt pack mule. It was character-building. Don't worry. Our children's day will come...they just aren't quite big enough yet.)
I got fabric for four projects, and I bought four packages of scrapbooking pages. Total purchase price, you ask? $56.12 Total savings? $52.04. Let's just say I feel pretty good. (Nate's heard about the savings at least three times already.)
PLUS, now I have an excuse to hide downstairs in my craft room for a very long time. ;)
