Here we are with another post, more content, more amazing deals for you all. I recently went to Tuesday Morning and Paper Source. Tuesday Morning is a store I go to from time to time. Sometimes I luck up and find great planner goodies or other craft supplies for projects. Other times, it can be a fail – as in the inventory hasn’t been updated. I did end up at Paper Source for the first time after seeing people talk about it for years on end. Well, that’s what it seems like. Still, I wanted to share my finds with you all.

Tuesday Morning Finds
Tuesday Morning has an array of planner goodies from top brands such as Heidi Swap, Illustrated Faith, American Crafts, We R Memory Keepers, and more. You can find anything from punches to scrapbook paper, stickers, washi tape, planners, etc. Most importantly, these items are discounted starting at least at 40% off.
The last time I went into Tuesday Morning I hit the mother load of Illustrated Faith items. I love my faith planner and these stickers would fit perfectly in that system, plus in my daily planner as well.
Majority of the items I picked up were again Illustrated Faith. The best find was Project Life recipe planner that was marked down from $14.99 to $1.99. To put it together, I would use discs instead of a ring binder. I love the flexibility of disc notebooks. I’d be able to move the pages around with ease and add in recipes I find.
Paper Source Finds
For the first time ever I found myself in Paper Source. I’ve heard about the store from many in the planner community, but I had never been in one. The store was so cute, pretty overpriced, but lots of great finds. Now I may have spent $20 in Tuesday Morning, but Paper Source was double that. There was a mini clearance section, but not my kind of clearance.
As for what I went in there for, I wanted to get my friend a card for her engagement party. The first one I saw said –
Holy Shit! You’re Engaged
That is literally my personality in a card. As much as I wanted that, I opted for a more sleek design that described togetherness to a tee. I also found a Golden Girls card for my friend. It’s one of her favorite shows and I couldn’t leave it behind.
There was a lot of women themed items and I snagged two embroidered patches. One I put on the cover of my current planner. I’m not sure what I’ll do with the other. They also had a decent selection of buttons that were $1.50 each. I picked up nearly a half dozen of those. Not sure how I’m going to style them yet.
I thought I’d throw in the one sticker book that I picked up recently at Michaels. I went in looking for storage for my craft closet (update coming soon), and I saw a sticker book that I didn’t have in my collection. Did I need it, of course not. Did I get it on sale? Sure did. Still not paying $20 for a sticker book.
I was torn between the Colorful Boxes and the Travel sticker books. While I still want the Travel one, the Coloful Boxes sticker book is more of a use to me right now. As I plan to travel later in the year, I might get the Travel stickers.
