I feel bad...but I tried.
I went to Joanns last night because I had the "itch" to not let my 50% coupons (2) expire. I didn't want to spend much...so I just spent some time looking around.
Anyway...they had some really cute flannels on clearance $3 yd + 50% off (so $1.50 a yd) so I picked up 4 yds (1 yd ea of 4 coordinating patterns) to make 3 receiving blankets and several burping pads for my great-nephew that we're expecting in late April. So I figured $6 for all that is still cheaper than in the store, plus "I" made it =)
But I still had my 50% off coupons...well I found this adorable kit that was bright & colorful and soft. It wasn't on sale so I could use my coupon.
ANYWAY...to make a long story short....I only got charged for 3 of the 4 flannel cuts and the kit was marked down to $9.97...I told the girl I had 4 cuts and that the the original price was $19.99 but she swore she was accurate...and that I could still use my coupons. I'm like okay...I'm not going to say it twice.
The moral of the story is I will be making 3 receiving blankets, a baby quilt and burping cloths for under $10!
