I love clearance items. Today I went over to Wal Mart and found some of the school stuff on clearance. I picked up these pencil boxes.
They are about 8" long and 3" wide. I thought they would be really good for bobbins and sewing notions and accessories.
The sign on the clearance cart said they were 25 cents so I grabbed 4. When I got to the checkout, they rang up as ten cents! I asked the clerk to wait since there was no one behind me and the rack was really close, while I ran back and picked up 6 more.
Then I called my friends to see who wanted some. And after I got all the replies, I just went back and bought all they had left! All told, I came home with 26 of them! 16 of them are spoken for, so that's not a big deal.
