Must Have Mondays: Crafting Coupons

Hey y'all!  It's Monday and that means another round of "must haves."  I absolutely could not do what I do without my crafty coupons.  I buy so much cardstock, ribbon, paint, buttons, etc. and I NEVER BUY THEM FULL PRICE.  There's no way I could afford it, lol.


Not only do I have JoAnn's and Michael's apps on my phone that give you all the coupons, I'm also on their mailing list (so double the goods).  Add in Hobby Lobby's 40% off coupon and you're all set!   



Now, some tricks of the trade I have learned...

*  YOUR CRAFT STORES MIGHT BE DIFFERENT SO CHECK OUT THEIR POLICY BEFORE PURCHASING!!!!  *

  • At JoAnn's you can use as many coupons as you want and from as many competitors (Michael's and Hobby Lobby) but then you CANNOT use your teacher card of 15% off as well.  You have to decide between all the single coupons combining or using your teacher card off the whole purchase. It really just depends what is already on sale and what coupons you have.
  • Michael's (at least the one by me who changes their mind with every different person at the register) will accept only one coupon (theirs or JoAnn's) AND your teacher card.
Without couponing in the crafts stores my room would not be able to look and run the way it does!  Now my couponing goes beyond craft stores and I have a lot left to learn in general but it's a step and it helps A LOT!  What is your "must have" this Monday?  Link up down below and don't forget to leave some comment love for someone else!

Happy Monday y'all!

  3. The JoAnn's by my house will let me use the 15% off teacher discount at all times. They always remind me to get it out.

  5. I can't live without my coupons either! I have an entire "drawer" for Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's, Achievers, and Micheal's on my iPohone. Why would you ever pay full price if you can use one of the coupons?

    I have to make sure I have a plan before I go in any of the stores though... wondering around is NEVER a good thing! I could spend a small fortune!
