I had a great question come into the moogly facebook page - how do I afford all this yarn? While I'll buy yarn just about anywhere, from Walmart to the local yarn shops to online, there are great opportunities to save at the big box craft stores. You don't even have to wait for sales - just print out the latest coupons!
- Michaels - Enter your zip code to get the coupons for the store closest to you. I got coupons for 40% off any one regularly priced item and 15% off the entire purchase excluding sale items.
- Jo-Ann Fabrics - Be sure to join their mailing list and get the app too! Right now there is a coupon for free shipping with a $40 purchase when you shop online.
- Hobby Lobby - I Love This Yarn is on sale this week, and there's a coupon for 40% off any regularly priced item!
- Herrschners - No coupons, but a huge sale on Red Heart products this week!
- ACMoore - Enter your zip code to get the coupons for the store closest to you. I got a coupon for 40% off one item and another for 50% off one item!

I usually scour over sites clearance sections. Other people may not like certain colors or types that I do and I have saved a bundle this way. In fact that is the first spot I look at when cruising around online.
Great tip Rachel! I remember one time going to Jo-Ann Fabrics and they were having a clearance yarn sale - got 2 big bags full for about $35! I'm still working through everything I bought that day!
Another bonus from AC Moore: sign up for free for their membership and you rack up points with each purchase. 200 points = $10 certificate Score! :0)
Wow, that's awesome Maria! Thanks for sharing!
I check out Craigslist, thrift stores, as well as the big box stores, craft shops, internet, trading/bartering, freecycle... everywhere and anywhere. 🙂 Luckily I live where there are a lot of pickings.
Very lucky indeed! And great ideas!!
