Stocking Up With Sales

Holidays are over, but that doesn’t mean the shopping has ended yet.  I made all my gifts, so I still have cash to spare.

I stopped by Wal-Mart this week as well, everyone’s heard of their 50% off Christmas clearance, right?  The only Christmas thing I liked was this cinnamon scented candle on sale for 50 cents.  It smells fantastic, much better than the pine and spiced apple ones.  While browsing I found these cute little erasers.  They had a bunch of them and they are only 50 cents a pack.  So cute, and shaped like desserts, junk foods, sushi, toothbrushes, cooking utensils, etc.  So many to choose from, I think I want to go back for more.

My mom gave me all her Bookman’s trade credit for Christmas, so I had to make a stop there.  I got the PatLabor vol. 7 DVD for $4, a baggie with and inkpad and 6 self-inking stamps for $1, and a rubber stamp of a heart-shaped bar of soap for 25 cents.  I also got a book but I didn’t like it so I’m taking it back, they have an excellent return policy.

I also got some hair elastics from DollarTree (obviously for $1), and some serger thread for $2 and white gloves for $1 at Joann’s.  They didn’t seem to be much of a point to take pictures of those, who doesn’t know what thread looks like.  Plus you will probably get to see the elastic and gloves eventually anyway, I am planning on doing something with them.  Might as well since I am now fully stocked up on ribbon and lace.  Look forward to it.
