Budget Tip


From some of my previous posts on Wed Michigan, you can probably tell that I am a big fan of saving money and making budget-friendly wedding choices. If you're a DIY bride and are willing to spend alittle more time and energy on a project, you can save some serious cash (remember, every little bit adds up!).

A good piece of advice that I've received since getting engaged is to register on the Michaels and Joann Fabric websites. When you sign up to receive weekly emails, they automatically send you a 40% off coupon. You will also receive emails with great store sales and coupons that you can print out right at home. Since most of these are for a discount on one item, it might take some effort on your part to go back to the store each week and purchase the single items. But, if you're looking for an great way to save money, the effort is worth it!

Do you have a AC Moore near you as well? They send 50% off cards in the mail and you can get bonus points from them and get $10 off after getting 100 bonus points. I saw you on the bee!! I like your blog!

Hobby Lobby (www.hobbylobby.com) is another good store located in Michigan - I have at least one lunch hour run to Hobby Lobby a week for wedding-related DIY stuff! :)
