US Shopping Day Trip

We went on a one day shopping trip to the US yesterday.  I love our US shopping trips.  I get to stock up on paper and supplies.  We don't have Joann's here in Canada so paper stacks that are exclusive to Joann's we can't get.  Even at Michaels the prices are so much cheaper for the same items.  Our paper stacks here are $29.99 and go on sale usually for $17.99 and I stock up on them on my trips for at the most $11.99.  The US dollar and the Canadian dollar are almost at par so it really saves a lot of money and makes for a fun trip.
We left our house at 6:00am yesterday morning and got gas, made a stop part way for bathroom break, had a 20 minute wait at the border and we were still at our first stop of K-Mart by just after 8:00am.  From there we went to Joann's, Kirklands, Hobby Lobby and Walmart all in Niagara Falls, NY.  Then we headed over to Amherst, NY to Buffalo Stamps and Stuff to pick up my Silhouette Cameo(my Christmas gift from my Hubby) that they were holding for me.  A stop at McDonalds for lunch.  Our McDonalds don't have the chicken select anymore so I like to have them when I can.  The next stop was Michaels, another Joann's, Lane Bryant, Target, and finally AC Moore.  We were back home by 7:30pm and exhausted.  Now that is what I call a great day.
Here are the craft supplies that I got.

 This is my absolute favourite Christmas paper that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I should have bought 2 because I know it will get used a lot.
Thanks for stopping by, now it's time to go and craft.

great haul!! I'm so jealous!! :) We're headed to Florida at Christmas and I usually stock up while I'm there but this time we'll be traveling with a 4 yr old, 2 yr old and 2 month old (plus car seats) so I think my hubby would kill me if he also had to pack a suitcase of paper,etc! :)
