lol, they know me by name their too. Even some of the customers think I work there. I was there yesterday and got the last cuttlebug that they had in stock. It was on sale, so I couldn’t resist. πŸ™‚

I have to go back there tomorrow, so yeah, the DIY is taking up way too much time.

lol that’s pretty funny – i know i spend too much time there when i know the store layout better than the employees.  i try to avoid the whole first name basis by mixing it up with the michaels i go to and sometimes i throw an ac moore into the mix.

A few weeks ago when they had 60% off coupons, I developed a whole route home from work that took me past 3 Michael’s so I could use as many coupons as possible. I think my family started to think I was crazy πŸ™‚

LOL! I usually get a “see you tomorrow” if they have a 50% off coupon week. I love how they suck you in with those…

@Bethesda, I live in Rockville, and the lack of craft stores in the area drives me crazy! I like that AC Moore over in North Bethesda, but really that’s it. Where are the Michaels you are visiting? Are they a pretty decent size?

waahahaha i love michael’s too but i dont go there as often as you do!  there isn’t a michael’s in San francisco, so i have to drive like 30min to get to one.

there’s a 40% off coupon today, hope you got to take advantage of that. i’m too lazy to get out of my house right!

Luckily, they don’t recognize me because I usually make at least two trips inside for every visit so I can max out the coupons. I used 9 of those 50% off coupons at a total of four different Michael’s. (One by work, one between work and home, and two by my house.)

 

I still need to buy some cardstock for menus and programs, some felt for programs, a whole mess of moss and 7 round centerpiece mirrors. But I’m getting SO close to having it all purchased. Everything else I’m using for the wedding will be coming from Amazon.

I love it there.  I’ve taken a couple of their classes, so they definitely know me by name.  That’s actually not good though, before I could go in multiple times a in a row to use coupon after coupon.  Now I actually have to stick to the “one-a-day” rule, lol.  Seriously, I can drop more money there than any other store in town, it’s not good!

I wish they’d make a special “Bridal Coupon” and just let us get our 40% off all at once!  You know we’d still be back for all the other little add-ons, but can you imagine the time saved (and the receipt paper!) if we could just do as much as possible at once?
