The arts-and-crafts store I work at had an "employee appreciation week" (the final day being yesterday).
The deal was 50% off ALL regular-priced items for store associates.
God knows I can't stand that job and probably won't be there much longer, so I took full advantage of this limited-time offer while I had the chance!
I easily bought $250 worth of merchandise but smiled as the register marked each and every item down so I ended up paying half that amount!
Look at ALL this stuff!!
Acrylics, watercolors, ink pads, metallic paints, markers, postal paper, packaging tape....and yes, a 24-set of Martha Stewart glitter!
And just for fun, I got this glitter pumpkin for Halloween! (Love it!)
I'd be smiling too if I were made out of green glitter!
While I was already fully stocked at the moment, all of these art supplies (not counting the glitter pumpkin) are things I'll need down the road.
So even though it was a large purchase upfront, I'll easily be set for the next several months, if not more, and won't have to buy anything for a long, Long, LONG time!
Hooray for savings!
