Big Lots is not my favorite store. Whenever I go looking for something in particular, of course it's not there. One of the two I visit is in a bad area of town, and both of the ones I visit are disorganized with filthy restrooms. But I continue to visit, because 1 out of 5 visits I might find some awesome Thickers for just $2 …. or some other item I didn't know I needed.
Don't you want to to Big Lots right away now? Haha! I'm sure after that glowing intro, you'll say no!
But just wait. Here's the catch. Apparently, there are some good scrappy deals at Big Lots now and more coming this Sunday. Check it out…
2-Day Sale Sun-Mon: Cricut Create $99 & Some Cricut Carts $30
Cricut is advertising the above deal for this Sunday & Monday, February 14th & 15th, 2010. Who knows how many of each, though, they will have at each store?

Now what do you think?
Worth a trip? I promise you that if I go to Big Lots, I will not find any of the above items at mine, no matter which one I go to. That's just the luck I have. But if I DO NOT go, then I'll find out later that they had all of this & more 🙂
If you go, let us know what you find!
