Michaels: $0.99 game deal


Cheap Games at Michaels

I stopped by Michaels today on Greenville in Dallas and found several games that were marked down to $0.99 each.

In addition to the games pictured above, they also had chess, checkers, and a few other games. The Jenga-style game was the only one that I scanned that wasn’t on clearance.

I got the Kidz Cardz (four card) game because the words are in English and French. My daughter studies both languages, so even though she has the card games already, I thought it was worth the $0.99 to get a set with French words. I got “Teasers” because there are seven games that look like they would be good travel games.

Any of the games would make good stocking stuffers! I’m not sure if all Michaels stores marked down these games. I happened to spot them while looking for paint…. they were not in the store’s clearance area.

The Christmas Tree Shops are now in Dallas & 20% off coupon


I have fun memories of going to the Christmas Tree Shops with my grandmother, mom, and aunts when I was younger whenever we visited Massachusetts and Rhode Island, so I was excited to see a billboard announcing the store would be opening near the Galleria Mall this fall. I have been waiting to hear exactly when it would open.

Then, yesterday, when I was at Bed Bath and Beyond on Park Lane in Dallas, I noticed an ad sitting at the checkout for the Christmas Tree Shops. On the back of the flyer, there is a coupon for 20% off your entire purchase. I hadn’t seen anything about it opening!

I stopped by the store, which is in the old Home Depot Expo shopping center on the Dallas Tollway, next to Bed Bath and Beyond and Buy Buy Baby. It was a lot larger than the east coast stores I remember…. very apparent that the company is now owned by Bed Bath and Beyond.

I didn’t have a lot of time to spend at the store, so I did a quick run through the store and picked up a 28 Keurig k-cup holder for less than $6. There were a few other items that looked interesting – especially at 20% off. They sell holiday decorations, furniture, kitchen items, toys, bath items, food, home decor and many other items.

The 20% off coupon is good until late October, so be sure to stop by Bed Bath and Beyond to pick one up before you go.

Not in Dallas? The Christmas Tree Shops are also opening new locations soon in Lancaster, PA, Greensboro, NC and Augusta, GA.

Natural Grocers: Organic Pears $0.99/lb., Whole Foods: Organic Apples & Grapes on sale


There is a new Natural Grocer at Preston/Forest in Dallas (where Whole Foods used to be before it moved across the street).

I haven’t shopped there much because their produce section at the Coit Road location is pretty small, but I was thrilled to see they have organic Northwest pears on sale through October 30 (while supplies last) for $0.99/lb.

It looks like this sale price is good at all their locations.

Whole Foods has organic Jonagold apples on sale through Wednesday for $1.69/lb and organic seedless grapes for $1.49/lb. Both come from California.
