        LOVE this post!!!  I'm a Michael's girl, but their prices can be completely out of control.  I've started early and every week I go there and buy 1 item.  Yup just 1 item, no matter how cheap.  Every purchase you make there you get a coupon for 40% off one item.  Sure you may feel crazy using a coupon on something little that only cost $3.00, but in the end the savings are HUGE!

            My mom does this all the time and she keeps telling me I need to start doing the same.

              Great post! Definitely true that "on sale" does not mean it's a cheap, poorly constructed product. Thanks for the tips and reminders.

                    I like the tips given especially number 1. I always look for another options and items which fairly high in quality but very affordable prices. i make sure that I choose the best among the choices on the shops.

                      I you sign up for Vista Print's emails, and keep an eye out those sorts of things come on for free.  I got my 100 STD postcards for free, and paid about $15 in shipping, which also included address labels (free), magnets (free) and a few Christmas presents.

                      I can't imagine that it would be cheaper to do it yourself. We ordered 100 save the dates (postcards) that we uploaded our own image to (color front, black and white back), rush ordered the process, and paid $28!! and they came out great.
