Last week, after I got the Royal blue yarn and Velcro at JoAnns, I went home by way of Savers. It was Tuesday, Senior Discount Day! (20% off)
I got six skeins of Red Heart Super Saver yarn for $1.60 each or about 40% off regular retail:
a brilliant orange (discontinued?), Hunter Green, Paddy Green, Black, Country Blue and Lt. Periwinkle.
I missed out on using six 50% off coupons at JoAnns last week. They were only good on Friday and Saturday and I’d already done all my running around on Tuesday; I didn’t want to make another trip just for yarn.
But this Monday I added JoAnns to my already long list of stops because I had eight 50% off coupons from Sunday’s paper, six of JoAnns and one each of Michaels and ACMoore!
As you can imagine, with all those coupons recently available, JoAnn’s RHSS inventory was limited, but I got most of the colors I needed/wanted:
two Cherry Red, – Valentine’s Day is coming! – two Burgundy, and one each of Turqua, Gold, Frosty Green and Lt. Blue. Wish there had been some Magenta. sigh.
O.K., time to take stock.
After the Sudden Downpour I figured I had enough yarn to last through January’s ripples. Then the Surprize box of yarn arrived with 4 1/2 more ripples’ worth. I used the Cherry Red that Sandi sent in the Spidey blanket, but let’s still say I’m set for February.
This newest haul. . .
will make four more ripples, which take care of March. . . March!
Ahem. . .
I remember saying a couple of months’ worth of new charity stash was the limit, yet here I sit, over the line. Let’s hope this Sunday’s paper doesn’t hold another big batch of 50% off coupons. I think I could resist the power of 40% coupons, but not fifties!! lol.
