The kids go back to school tomorrow (oh happy day!) and the boys had a day out with mommy last week, so I took my daughters for a girl’s day out today. We hit a few stores then had lunch at Chick-fil-a and even stopped to skip some stones in the creek on the way home. Our best shopping trip of the day was at Michael’s where we found lots of their $1 stocking stuffer items on sale for a quarter, and a bunch of great gift and craft items for 70% off. I let them pick out a bunch of stuff for themselves and their brothers for a quarter each, then I got the cake pop kit for $3.49 (I couldn’t buy the candy melts inside for that price, and there is a bunch of other stuff in the box), and these big activity boxes were only $4.49 each, marked down from the $14.99 retail price. I was also able to use a $5 off $25 coupon so I ended up with $89.93 worth of goodies for $21.86 or 76% off!
**Note: Oops – I just found another bag of quarter stuff in the car that didn’t make it into the picture. We also picked up a few pair of exfoliating gloves, some holiday themed baking cups, and some glitter stickers for the girls.
