when you are looking over your mail for the day, a lot of areas send sale ads for local craft stores (rag shop, Michael's, etc). in these sale ads are usually a 40% off a non-sale item (depending on what area you live in). these coupons are a real money saver for those scrapbooking on a budget. i usually reserve that coupon for a good quality paper stack that goes for $20 or more. also, check out the sale ads every week for more great deals. for example, last week i was tempted to get some photo storage boxes but $4 a box seems like a lot when i need several of them. i waited a few days, looked through the sale ad, and with luck found the same storage boxes on sale for half off :)
