Where do I find bargains?

In addition to Michales, Jo-Ann & AC Moore (my local scrapbooking stores in CT) I periodically stop in at one or more of the following:
• Final Markdown - known for their deep discounted greeting cards and gift bags also have a small office supply section and a robust little craft one with a continued appearance of what must be overstock K&Co merchandise.

• Big Lots - this store is pretty well known to crafters. They have and have had Martha Stewart supplies as well as Friskers, Cricut Cartridges, numerous paper and some even rely on their regular supply of Scotch glue.

• Tuesday Morning - sadly our local store closed at the end of 2009 and I am sorry that I did not stop in there often enough when they were open because they do have some surprising deals like American Crafts cardstock for 75% off or more, bundled deals on embellishments and odds and ends that are always a pleasant find.

• Ocean State Job Lot - specializing in overstock items by the truckload this store is really a hit or miss. I typically stop in there for grocery items like $.99 fat free and low sodium stock but always make it a point to browse the craft isle, just in case. My most recent stop produced an adorable set of Nano Pens which are just the right size for those small journaling spots on mini albums that always appear too small to leave anything meaningful written on it.

• CVS - just 2 days ago I stopped in with hubby to use our rewards points and walked by their dollar spot to find several sequin packs that I will be using shortly.

• Consignment Stores - Goodwill, Salvation Army and local one can hold treasures you didn't know you wanted or needed. I have seen post of incredible finds of Cricut Expression machines for under $60 brand new in the box so don't discount them on your travels.
