The mugs come to about $10.50 before tax. However, personalization for just a name starts at $6. Make sure you don’t use a premium font which is $5 extra…they are selected by default. The back and front of this item can be personalized. Getting both sides personalized can be costly. You may want to stick with just the front. I still think $16.50$17.25 (if you have to pay for personalization on the free item) is a pretty great price for a personalized gift! 


Flasks (starting at $25.00), are BOGO 50% off and so are silver charm bracelets which start at just $14.99!

Some select styles are buy 3, get the 4th free. You also have to pay for engraving (beginning at $6). However, with the bracelets you also receive a keepsake jewelry box for free (if you have the box personlized). So really, it’s like getting the box free but you have to pay $6. Two engraved bracelets (the one pictured below) with two engraved jewelery boxes would cost about $23.50. If you take an additional 15% off, it would be about $20! Not a bad price for a beautiful personalized gift and personalized keepsake box!

$14.99 plus BOGO 50% off, plus additional 15% off, plus an engraved keepsake box for $6!

$6 for an engraved keepsake box when you buy a bracelet!



Michaels Special Wedding Clearance Items!


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!
