Does anyone else have this problem?  Everytime I get one of those 40% or 50% off coupons for Michaels or Joann, I feel like I have to use it whether or not there's anything I actually need to make.  And now that I have both apps on my phone, I think the problem is just worse.  Maybe I should sit down and plan out my projects a bit better, then maybe I could justify my coupon usage.

I know what you mean. I clip Hobby Lobby every week and also save the entire Michaels ad... But I never use them except the week each month when penh happen  to buy something from our local stamping store... One week a months, she honors all coupons. Trouble is, I seem to not be in a buying mood of late so I give my coupons away to those who forgot to clip them!

i have Hobby Lobby on my iPad but I rarely carry it to Hobby Lobby so it's really taking up space for nothing!

Oh, yes.  I forgot about the Hobby Lobby app.  I've got that one on my phone too.  Half the time, they can't scan the coupon and wind up having to key in the code anyway.
