Don't over look grab bags

Hi Everyone,
This post is crafty related but without a project. You know how Michaels often has the grab bags for $2. Well I usually peek at them,but never buy them. I think, "what if you get stuff you won't us"e. Well I will never over look them again.  My mom and I went shopping and were looking and in one bag she saw Squinkies, so for $2 we got that one just for the squinkies. We looked in another bag and she saw some crafty stuff she wanted, so we picked up that one and another one. We take them home and OH MY GOODNESS!!  We found 2 sets of Spellbinders dies and stamps that coordinate, the squinkies and a ton of other stuff. It was about $300 worth of stuff in the 3 bags.  Some it was the leftovers from the $1.50 but there were some big ticket items, a mosaic hurricane, a cheese spreader and dish.  We were shocked at the amazing things, so we went back and got a few more bags.  It was absolutely one of the best deals that we had found. So next time they are definitely on the list to look at.  I will have a project for you later today that started as something from one of the grab bags. I will see if my mom will email the picture. We took a picture after the first trip because we were so amazed at what we got.  Some of the stuff is going in the bin for my 2 year blogaversary prizes.

Enough rambling :)
