The holidays are less than 6 months away! Is your stash ready for present making? If you need to stock up (or just buy yourself something pretty!) you can use the sales and coupons at the craft stores to save money. The weekly Crafty Coupon Roundup makes it easy!
Many of these sales only last through the weekend, so be sure to click on the name of the store for current prices if you’re shopping next week! Make sure too that you know your craft store policies – many take competitor’s coupons, and this can really pay off! Please note that the JoAnn and Craftsy links in this article are affiliate links - but that doesn't change your prices at all!
