What Can You Get For a Dollar? (second edition)

You may remember the post I did about going to the dollar store last January.  TEN and I had some money, and we went hog wild at Dollar Tree, Dollar General and Family Dollar.  It was fun :)

Well, today I went hog wild at Michael's.  Did you know they had a dollar section?  I sure didn't!  Thank you mrs.mfc for suggesting I visit Michael's ASAP!  See what mrs.mfc bought on her trip HERE.

Here are a few of my prizes:

(set of 3 folders)

(lunch bag?  gift bag?  whatever you please!)

(Laura Ashley in the house!)

(these note cards and coasters remind me of summer, and of swimming pool buoys...anyone?  anyone?)

(these magnets are always rather pricey, can't believe i found them for $!)

(ecru note cards with gold foil shells!)

(this pattern reminds me of my sheets in high school.  they were a Laura Ashley print.  summer breeze and hammocks come to mind :)

(a set of each of these for the girls in cooking class!  do you notice that there are 3 of us, and 3 chairs on the cards?)

(you say pencil case.  i say PARTY POCKET!
to replace Daisy's stolen fuscia bag :)
(disclaimer...this was not $1.  sorry friends.  it was $2.99.  can you believe?!?!?!)

Pretty successful lunch break if you ask me!  If you want to visit your nearest Michael's I wouldn't waste time.  Our quantities were limited and I was so glad to have found what I did.

A dollar gets you more and more every day, I say!

I stopped by Michael's on Tuesday and hit the dollar section. I found some cute note cards for little gifts for my nieces. I loved the gift cards with the handbags on them!
Good buy!

Love, love, love! I love getting little goodies at dollar stores. Michael's has great assortments. They are nice little pick me up gifts for friends or a nice addition to a package.

Have a great weekend.

I love Michaels! I went there almost every other day during Christmas prep time. Definitely check them out during holidays, or just after. We went after Christmas and got fantastic decorations for 80% off.

Umm, I'm going there right now! Thank you!

Amazing deals, you found such fabulous goodies. And I'm with you on the Part Bag as opposed to the pencil carrier, that's a perfect use for it.

Sending you a smile,

And to THINK they're thinking of making the penny obsolete. FOR SHAME! :-)
