    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!

    I'm glad someone else feels that way. I mean I always try to be honest...if someone gives me the wrong change, charges me the wrong price, etc. I give it back, I say something. I just believe in being that way...karma is important to me.

    I felt bad about this, but I felt like I tried. I'm not going to fight with someone. I wasn't going to put it back...I found something I liked.

    Hopefully it won't bite me in the butt!

    that's ok. that makes up for me buying the fons & porter magazine thinking i would use the coupon on it, but they did their usual and had magazines 10% off (no sign posted). so instead i got 50 cents off a package of $1 acrylic stamps and paid nearly $6 for the magazine! i never pay that much for magazines! i would have gotten it from the library! that's what happens when you don't pay attention!

    so now they're even!
