Frugal Friday!

Well, one thing I mentioned in my post below about our boys' room renovation is that Walmart is discontinuing their fabric departments. For all you seamstresses out there on a budget, this is bad news! Walmart doesn't have the highest quality fabrics but they certainly have some good fabrics at really low prices. They also have the lowest prices on 100% cotton quilt batting that I've found.

The good news of this situation is that the already low priced fabrics are all on clearance sale! So, if you have a Walmart near you, check out the fabrics! Last night I bought 10 yards of plaid home decor fabric to make new curtains and window seat covers for our boys' room, 5 yards each of micro check gingham in red, black, blue and green, and 5 yards of a beautiful tiny pink floral fabric. The total price for 35 yards of fabric was $19.00! And, these were part of their better fabric collections! Now is the time to visit Walmart's fabric departments! What I understand from the fabric girl last night is that all the Walmarts are pricing their fabric departments with closeout prices right now! Go find some bargains, girls!

This actually isn't happening everywhere right now. I went to several stores in my area and they weren't sale pricing yet. One employee told me it maybe 3 years before it happens in our area, if it does at all.
