Scrapbooking Stuff at Big Lots

I’m sure this isn’t a very big deal for most of you. But for someone who’s main scrap shopping opportunities are Michaels, Target, and Walmart, you have to understand my excitement. WE JUST GOT A BIG LOTS!!!!!

I have always been so jealous reading those lovely, enabling message board posts about ‘the finds’ everyone has at places like Archivers (never been there), Joann’s (don’t have any), Hobby Lobby (nopey, nopey), and Big Lots. So now, I’m at least 1/4 of the way into that exciting world. And luckily for me – She of the Empty Wallet – it’s the most bargain-minded store that came to my ‘hood. So forgive my overdoing it with the photos but just thought I would share all the scrappy stuff I found at MY – yes, MY – Big Lots the other day.

LOTS OF STICKERS, MAT STACKS, and AMERICAN CRAFTS EMBELLIE JARS

A BIG HONKIN’ SCRAPBOOK KIT – I heard a lady in the aisle say that she saw this kit at Costco for $40, but it was only $25 at Big Lots. And there was only one.

TEEN KITS, CHRISTMAS KITS….

COLORBOK GOODIE BAGS – Tons of misc. stuff for only $12….”$100 value!”

SCRAPBOOK STORAGE OPTIONS AT A GREAT PRICE – I was eyeing those 3-drawer things but I have to see if the dimensions work for my space.

A PRE-DONE SCRAPBOOK – Hey, I’m not opposed to them as long as they are cute….great timesaver! And you can add embellies to make it your own.

AS SEEN ON TV! THE CRAFT LITE CUTTER – I assume that’s a great price if you’re in the market for one…

A CLOSER LOOK AT THE DIE CUTS WITH A VIEW 12X12 ALBUMS – A stunning $8 each! Even the turquoise velvet one…

AND HERE IS WHAT I ENDED UP BUYING: DCWV ‘Old World’ album ($8), AC red ribbon (it was unmarked so she gave it to me for $2), AC ‘Happy Birthday’ rubons, great for card making ($2), Pressed Petals ‘Chip Chatter’ letters in metallic green and red; I’m thinking Christmas layouts ($2 each), DCWV ‘Pocket Full of Posies’ mat stack ($3), so pretty, and metallic words ($1 each). All that shizzle for under $25. Made out like a bandit, I’d say.

Personally, I don’t care if something is NEW or HOT or JUST INTRODUCED AT CHA! If it’s “old” and I like it – and I get a great deal on it – I’m a happy girl. If you’re the same way, don’t forget to check out your Big Lots once in a while. You never know what you’ll find….

    OMGosh! what great stuff! Never thought I needed to go in one, but I see I was very, very wrong. Will Big Lots rank in right behind the Dollar Tree and Walmart? Great turn-on! xx

    My Big Lots isn’t that nice either, but I did snag one of those bargain bags for $12. You really don’t realize how much good stuff is in them until you get into it!

    Thanks for the heads-up. Have a Big Lots here in my tiny town, but I’ve never been there. Will check it out later today.

    I have two BIG-LOTs here where I live… FLorida. But never seen so much scrapbooking stuff at once… every week I check what they had gotten new.
    It looks like they been sending them stuff every week until they open and thats why it look like they got so much..

    Im happy for you.. there is always something we cant used.

    Yeah…you gotta watch out for Big Lots AND know your prices! It’s easy to get sucked into thinking you “need” one of everything. If you only knew how many things I “needed” from there that I need to get rid of now! LOL! Seriously think about your purches, girl! Glad you got one! Yours looks a lot nicer and better stocked than mine!

    WOW. Your Big Lots has way more scrapbook stuff than the one by me does. Even so, I love Big Lots. Some days I go and find nothing and other times I spend way too much!

    I am sssooo jealous! The closest Walmart is 35 minutes away. The closest Target, Michaels and Joannes are all an hour away! The nearest Big Lots is 2 1/2 hours away! I’d love to have one closer. Some day maybe. What amazing finds. Maybe I shoudl convince my dad (who also loves Big Lots) to go on a little road trip with me? hhmm….so ya, I live in a little po-dunk town also.

    Does your store still look the same (since I noticed this post is from over a year ago)? I just discovered Big Lots had a scrapbooking section and it is now my favorite store. Also like most of the other posts, our store does not look anything like that. If I may ask, what city is it in?
