Coupon frenzy

So I went to the Michaels President Day sale today.  Those 50% off coupons just burn straight through my wallet.  I had four of those suckers ... poor David he is such a trooper when it comes to me and this hobby.  He supports me so much, listens to me talk on and on about paper lines, card stock colors, inks, techniques, you name it.  So for the shopping assault on Michaels I was to go in scope everything out pick out what I wanted mindful of using my four 50% and two 20% total purchase coupons -- then phone David and have him and the kids come in.  So sad, I know.

Well, I walked out with some great things but one item totally perplexes me, I have no idea what I was thinking.  I bought this 12X24 K&Company Designer Paper Pad from the new Handmade collection.  12X24?  Huh?  You see it was 30% off and then I had the 20% total purchase coupon ... it was 50% off.  I mean 50%.  Now I have 36 sheets of K&Company paper which I traditionally despise that when cut to 12x12 will be 72 sheets of paper.  HUH?  Those coupons can make you loose your damn mind.  For the rest of the day I kept saying to David that I should take this paper pad back - he wouldn't have it.  So tonight I sit here looking at a 12x24 paper pad that I don't know what I am going to do with and more importantly where I am going to store it.

Thanks for looking and yes HE stamps.


  1. Ben you are too funny!!! I completely understand about the coupons, lol. I like the papers you posted.

  2. Okay a few things. One I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that. I have my hubby and kids come in too. lol Us crafters we rock. And 2 I would go gaga over a 12x24 stack of paper. Just savor its beauty and then go play. Hehe.

  3. You are cracking me up.... but seriously, if you need someone to take that paper off your hands you just let me know! I'm sure by now you've figured out how to use it!

  4. LMBO!!! That is so something I would do! Oops, I should have said, been there done that! You are too funny!
