So around Thanksgiving, I had a Joanns coupon but decided to wait until the next day since the notions were going on sale for 50% off plus I had a coupon for an extra 10% off. Well, they were immediately sold out, and they didn't get any back in for a month, and I kept kicking myself for losing out on the more than 40% off.
So fastforward to now. I got a Hancocks email (which I just found out are in Tucson... and I've lived here 24 years) - notions on sale for 50% off. I went in, their rotary blades (pack o' 5, 45 mm) is $25 base ($8 less than my Joanns) and the sign said 30% off. I did the math, still cheaper than Joanns. They rang me up - 50% off. I paid $25 for 10 rotary blades. That's $2.50 per blade!! I've never gotten them for less than $3. 10 plus existing stash will last me quite awhile, but I'm tempted to buy more because it's that good of a deal
