scrappy haul!

There is this really fun store in Bowling Green, KY, called Mighty Dollar.
It reminds me of Big Lots but it's better - 'cause everything is a dollar!
They have close-outs of things, and a long aisle, full on both sides of SCRAPBOOKING STUFF!
Yay!

I live one hour away but I go there to see my friend, Tiffany, every couple of months and we always head there.
Last Friday afternoon, she and I hung out for a while and it was not my favorite trip there ever, but I did find some goodies....

They had TONS of Making Memories. Like a whole aisle. I got these in anticipation of our visiting a historic train station nearby.

My favorite Christmas line ever, "Swell Noel" by K&Co. I have 3 of these already but I couldn't help myself!!! Did I mention everything is only $1? :) I figure these are good for all the December Daily's for the rest of my life.

Not too thrilling but I can use these for my class. They had tons of different sized brads by MM and Bazzill:

Took these out of the package...sorry. These are by Making Memories too:

They had these in tons of colors! Love!!!!

I love K&Co's stickers like this - this is from a newish line. I bought some of it recently!

These are older than dirt and I actually owned them at one time but I purged them. I saw them for $1 and thought, Hey! I still like those! I can peek the top word out from behind a photo.

I also got these fun little notepads with graph paper - perfect for sketching out cards & layouts!

Before I left Bowling Green, I stopped in TJ Maxx and snagged these goodies for $1.99 and $1.49!

I loves me some scrappy bargains!

I will have to say - after my very recent purge, I was much more careful about what I bought at Mighty Dollar. Many of the items I just sold in a yard sale were things I bought on a whim at Mighty Dollar. So this time, I only bought 10 items but I saw probably 30 things I liked!!! I am trying to resist stickers and other themed items.

But if you're in an area where there's a Mighty Dollar (or passing by one) - definitely check it out!

Great stuff, Tracie! I still have, and love, and use those Autumn Leaves definition cards. :) Looks like I need to check my TJMaxx. Thanks for the heads up.

Great haul...it's funny how you purged an item and then repurchased it later. :) Can't wait to see you have in store for us...
