    My husband was very excited to get a floor lamp $200 for free when you got the deck model for $100. Plus 20% off. With that saving he said I could get everything I wanted. Just not needed but wanted. I love that man. So I found some books, supplies and a new cutter. I lost mind. Then over to scrapbooking. I saved so much. The best savings was on irons. I got the little one for making binding. Did I tell you I love that man.

    There was a thread on here about this awhile ago. I'm not sure what key words you'd use to search for the thread. Some folks suggested buying the plastic shelf liner at the dollar store. The liner looks like what's sold at Bed, Bath, Beyond to keep rugs from slipping.

    I hit Hancock Fabrics yesterday to take advantage of their batting sale, 40% off and an additional 15% off coupon. That is the best price they will have all year, so had to jump on it.. I rarely shop there anymore as I find their fabric quality not to my liking. But for sale notions, it's okay.

    I too hate that you can only use one of the coupons & every time I visit their site I send an email complaining about it. Most places with shipping specials appy it automatically when your order reaches the specified amount. I even emailed them a copy pf my receipt (for over $100) and told them that sale could have been theirs except for their "penny wise, pound foolish" way of handling online orders. Maybe if we all complained they might take a look at it.

    I went to the store and got packaged bats. There was a low-loft King size on sale for 14.95. Also got two twin sizes and 4 fat quarters. Total bill came to $36. Saved $32, so that wasn't too bad.

    My table on which I sew in the sewing room is against the wall, and under the table is an old soft, floppy sofa pillow. The pedal is snugged up against the pillow and is always there when I want it.
    In my living room when I sew at the dining table, I have more problems. I think I will try to tie or pin the pillow or several pillows to the table legs so that the pedal won't move there either.

    I actually did a comparison of JoAnns vs Thousands of Bolts, Fabric.com and Marshall Dry Goods. Now granted I only needed fabric but Marshall came out the cheapest even with shipping. I got 15 yards of fabric, 9 of those yards were 108" tie dyes, 3 yds batik and 3 yards tone on tone black. Shipping was flat rate $5.95. Total was $56.96. Everyone else, even Joann's with the 15% coupon was $75-$80 and I didn't have to make a special trip. I was pretty excited.
