Michaels , the craft store, recently sent out an email blast that the stores were holding a special 80% off clearance sale! Eager to score some treasures to put aside for Christmas, I went to check out the aisles. I didn’t find much to serve as stocking stuffers but I was overloaded by wedding merchandise! There were favor kits for under $10, BRIDES brand invitation boxes (normally $40) for under $10! Now is the time to stock up especially if you are having a winter, spring or summer wedding. The seasonal wedding merchandise has been marked down tremendously to make way for summer and fall! Wait another month and many more summer items will be on the way out as well for unbelievable prices.
There is also a huge selection of spring/summer artificial flowers for 80% off and summer/spring artificial flower arrangements at close-out prices. These can be used to make flower girl crowns, infinity bouquets, centerpieces and more!
Glass gems and river rocks are only $1 a bag. Stock up!!!! They are normally $2.79 a bag. This is the lowest price of the season. This is a cheapest price even with coupons! River rocks and gems are essential centerpiece fillers!
Remember as I always say…plan ahead…shop seasonal clearances…SAVE BIG!
Michaels has some great coupons available for print this week including 50% off any regularly priced wedding item. Have your bridal party take a trip out with you to stock up! You will want to use this coupon on the items that rarely (if ever) go on sale for below 40% which includes guest books, aisle runners, toasting flutes and invitation kits. I would stock up on invitation kits with multiple trips or multiple friends!
There are three coupons available for Michaels this week. There is a $5 off every $25 purchase for 03/04 and 03/05. This works in increments of $25 so if you spend $50, you save $10. This is only available online. There is another online and flyer coupon for 20% off your total purchase of tabletop frames. wall frames and shadow boxes. This is one of my favorite coupons because it can usually be used with sales on the frames as well! Nicw stock up price for centerpiece frames, bridal party gifts
Here are some of the best deals for brides to be this week at Michaels:
Glass Gems and River Rock, 50% off: I DO DEAL! This is one of the cheapest pricest of the year. If you need multiple bags, use that $5 off $25 for an awesome deal. These make great centerpiece fillers that are reusable!

Ash;and Home Containers, 50% off: These are awesome for centerpieces, especially for rustic, garden or weddings using shades of green.
Oversized Party Glasses, $11.99: Great centerpiece items for a reception or shower. This isn’t a great price (they are normally $14.99-$16.99) because 40% coupons would be better but the Mon-Tue coupon can offset the costs.

The coupon this week is for 40%…nothing to new! There was a 25% off original priced purchases but that isn’t an extreme deal and it was only good on Sunday.
I just got back from Michaels and saw some awesome deals!!!! There is a special clearance on children’s fun find items and adult fun find items. Adult items are only 50 cents each and children’s are 25 cents!!! These items normally retail for $1 to $5! I picked up socks for my girls, pens, markers and tons of other stocking stuffers! I also scored some items for an event! I had five bags full for only $26!!!! Some of my items were even free!!!! If they were marked for a penny (they aren’t marked you have to wait until checkout to know) then they are free once they are rung up! My little one’s water and glitter baton was free along with some bath accessories!
On the bridal note, there are tons of sachets with words insribed on them that can be used as decorative favors, pens, initial items, candle holders, glass vases, glass jars and pampering items. There is a also a large selection of sea glass, sand dollars and sea stars if you are planning a nautical wedding. I even saw some awesome blue ceramic tiles, black and white coffee tins and more! Use your imagination and you have some awesome favors and table decor!
