yesterday i went to big lots with my mom. while she browsed for curtain rods, i looked around the school supply/scrapbooking aisle. if you don't know what big lots is, it's basically a big messy closeout merchandise store. i think it's where merchandise that other stores/companies don't want anyway so big lots gets it to sell at cheap prices. i love the place because of it's great bargains but the only downside of going there yesterday is that it's gift shopping time & the store was crowded. lots of loaded up shopping carts, a long time to wait in line, and the store itself is a bit too cluttered. but i did find some great stuff for cheap. i bought a paper trimmer for $2 and two collage sheets for 50 cents each!
i might have to go back for more, they're selling little boxes of photo corners for $1, gluestick for 50 cents and packs of cardstock.
