I was lucky enough to receive a "scratch off" coupon from Joann Fabrics in the mail which allows me to buy any ONE regular price item at 80% off. It seems like a great chance to get something really wonderful that I otherwise wouldn't be able to afford, but I don't know what to get. Any great ideas for what you would splurge on at Joann's if it was 80% off?

*Little details: I have to use the Q by the end of the day tomorrow. There may be some exclusions but I don't have the Q in front of me at the moment, so assume that there aren't any. I like to do all kinds of crafting and would also be willing to try new things, BUT I don't scrapbook.

Just saw this thread, so obviously you've already used the coupon.

What did you buy?

I probably would've gotten a very large cutting mat (for use with a rotary cutter). I have a 12"x18" cutting mat, but a larger one would be great.

IDK since it seems everytime I go there what I want to use my Q on is already on sale. But *I* would get another OTT lamp. Mine is like $269.00 and I got it for like 60% off and I love that thing.

So please do tell.. what did you get?

I just couldn't pull the trigger on something really spectacular (and it turned out that a lot was excluded on the Q). I gave some thought to the $200 Rowenta iron/steamer, but they only had the display model, and I've lived this long without a steamer and so on. In the end I just used it on the most expensive item ($8) that I was buying to make my younger daughter's new school bag. I had my older DD with me and I used it as an opportunity to teach a life lesson (it's not how much you save, it's how much you spend and if you don't need it even at 80% off it's no bargain). I still wish that I had something really great though. I know that in a month I'll find something that I will be kicking myself that I didn't buy with it (sigh).
