My Sunday Fun Day: 8-31-2014

Sunday was a fun day!  Me and my son went to breakfast then headed to church.  After church we stopped by Verizon.  We then headed to Michaels for some shopping.  After Micheals we then headed to the movies and saw "When The Game Stands Tall".  That movie had me crying.  Have you'll seen it?  What are your reactions or thought?

Anyway!  After the movies we went to eat at Golden Corral then we headed home.

I am especially delighted about my "Michaels haul".  I spent $73.63.  I saved $15.37 using 2 coupons; a 50% off one items and a $20 off the total purchase.  I got 4 12x12 paper packs and 1 12x12 paper pad by Simple Stories (2 qty), My Mind's Eye (1 qty), and Heidi Swapp (2 qty). I got 5 Recollections dimensional border stickes on clearance for $.99 that are an Easter and Birthday theme.  I racked up on some other $.99 Recollections dimensional stickers that are cameras, butterflies, word titles/bubbles, cupcakes, and doodling designs.  I got 2 packs of Jolee's circus dimensional stickers for $1.99; on clearance.  I got 2 packs of Michaels flowers (blooming petals and botanical flora).  I got some Heidi Swapp goodies that were 40% off:  1 pack of sheer stickers, 3 packs of outline stickers, 2 packs of themed cards, and 2 packs of banners.  I got some American Crafts die-cut wood cards on clearance for $1.49.  I got 3 Darice acrylic gem border strips.  Lastly, I got 2 packs of Recollections congrats and 2014 dimensional stickers for $.99 each on clearance. 

I really racked up in the clearance section you'll!  And that was my Michaels haul!
