    I just checked on eBay and there are some really good buys on Olfa blades. I typed in "Olfa blades 45 mm" and then checked the "Buy it now" on the side and pages came up. Many at really good buys. One had 3 pkgs. of 5 for $24.99. She had 8 available (meaning 8 people could get this deal). Doing the math, that is $5 a pkg. or $1 a blade plus free shipping.
    There are others out there for good buys, too. I also consider a couple of bucks a blade a good buy, too, if these are gone.

    Cutting is so much more fun with a good blade! Happy hunting (for blades that is). Saving on blades means more money for fabric!

    If you prefer 60 mm, type that in. Using "Buy it now" just saves the hassle of bidding. :lol:

    Oh, I am so embarrassed! My math was so wrong! $24.99 divided by three is $8.33 a pkg. or $1.66 a blade. Still a good deal, but what was I thinking. I am soooo embarrassed!!!!!
    I am usually good with math. Grrrrr

    Oh, Amma, I may not be able to check on this many times when people catch the error, but not the retraction. This was my first topic to start, too. Boo hoo. Makes me sad. Ok, got to stop beating myself up over it. I meant well. When I clicked edit, I thought that I had a correction added to the bottom of the original, and then when I clicked "send," it said that I needed to login. Then that took the edit option away. I am slowly learning my way around the site. Thanks for letting me vent. :oops:

    i can attest to that, too.

    i just bought this year's supply of 60mm blades for a hair over $2 each once shipping is factored into the equation.

    i have at least a year's worth of 45mm, too.

    ebay may not be all it used to be for everything, but it's still my go-to source for blades.
