Not only do I love to shop at the dollar store, I also love to check the dollar sections at other stores like Michaels! Today I had to run to Michaels to pick up some supplies for a project, so I did a quick trip through the fun finds section (also known as the DOLLAR SECTION!!) and found some really cute things in their Street Smart collection – products with street sign typography on them! Check out what I found in the video below (if you are a YouTube user, please subscribe to my channel!). If you don’t like videos, read on for the highlights of my shopping haul.
What I bought at Michaels:
Here are the Street Smart alphabet stickers – they are so cool! The stickers cost $1 and have every letter of the alphabet, plus three of each vowel. I picked up 5 of them, just so I would be sure to have all the letters I need!
What to do with them: You can use them to make a personalized sign for your bedroom (or your child’s bedroom), or incorporate them into a duct tape purse. If you do that, be sure to cover them with clear contact paper or clear duct tape so they will stand up to the same use and abuse that duct tape does!
Also from the Street Smart collection, a metal sign with the letter L on it. I also got E and G – my three sons’ initials. They didn’t have an H for me, so I got…
An H hook! It cost $2 but it was so cool, and now I have a place where only I can hang my purse or coat!
Don’t forget to rush out and get these items at Michaels if you are interested in them – any items with letters on them get shopped over really quickly, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Not from the dollar section, but still fun: Acrylic crystal beads. I found them in the plastic bead/pony bead section in a large package for $5.99. What I like about them is that acrylic beads are pretty and shiny, but durable and lightweight. I plan to use them to make a (lightweight) necklace or incorporate them in a chandelier project I am doing.
COUPON TIP: Oh, and I used my 40% coupon on them! Just a tip: if you forget your coupons (I ALWAYS do!), just load up Michaels.com on your smartphone & you can have the cashier scan the coupon from your phone.
Also in the acrylic bead family: a package of rainbow acrylic crystal beads. Actually, they’re more like jewel tone, less like rainbow. I might use these instead on my chandelier (it’s kind of colorful). Again, I like them because they are lightweight.
What fun things have you seen at Michaels’ lately? Any other dollar scores to share?
