I do a lot of my shopping online.  I live in a small town, with only Walmart and a few grocery stores to choose from.  The nearest Hobby Lobby is a 45 minute drive.  Since I love crafting, that presents a bit of a problem when it comes to supplies.  Therefore, if Walmart doesn’t have it, I have to look online.  I’ll share some of my favorite supply websites on down the page, but first I want to share with you how to get paid for shopping.  Most people have heard of Ebates, but did you know there are other websites that give you cash back as well?  The one I find myself using the most is BeFrugal.  Don’t get me wrong, I always compare to see which one is giving me a higher percentage, and most of the time it’s BeFrugal.  Plus, right now they will give you $10 just for signing up and making a qualifying order (qualifying order is $25) and $15 for every friend you refer that makes a qualifying order as well.  You can sign up using this link.  If you haven’t done so already, sign up for Ebates too.  You will get a $10 gift card for signing up and making a qualifying order and and earn up to $25 for referring someone who places a qualifying order (again a qualifying order is $25).  For both sites you just go to the home page site, search whichever store you are planning to buy from, then click on the coupon you want or “Shop Now” if you have a better promo code.  So here are the links: Cash Back                 Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

Here are links to some places I get supplies:

Amazon – Use my link to get $5 for signing into the Amazon App the first time.  Amazon literally has just about anything you want under the sun.  Craft materials aren’t always the best price but if you need it in two days or can’t find something specific, it’s always worth a shot.

Hobby Lobby – Not Everything they have in store is online but sometimes you get lucky! Don’t forget to use their weekly coupon.  Click then select “get coupon” on top right of page.  Choose to apply to your online order.

Save-on-Crafts.comThis is an online craft supply that has some unit things.

Craft Outlet.comCraft Outlet has great, big, full, floral picks that are very reasonably priced and a good selection of unique deco mesh that I’ve not been able to find anywhere else.

Michaels – Of course right?  But did you know Michaels gives a teacher discount?  Only in store, but usually on top of any other savings.  Because of this and they are pretty chill with coupons period, I like shopping with them over Hobby Lobby.  Check them out!  Any store that’s willing to give teacher discounts deserves my business in my opinion. – Don’t let the name fool you.  They have a full line of deco mesh and wreath forms.  Their prices are spot on too.  Way cheaper than retail, even with a coupon.  Check them out!


Sooooo, there you have it.  Two easy ways to make money while shopping and some good crafting websites to help.  I would love to hear from you.  Feel free to ask any questions you have or share ideas.
