Shopping in Florida part 1

Thought I would start off by showing you my Michaels receipts ;-) but it's a little worrying, as didn't find the shop till my second week.

Just imagine if I had found it in the first, lol... it was just a 10 minute walk from where we were staying in International Drive...


Do you like the boxes I brought there? (they worked out at just over £4 each). I brought them with the idea of keeping themes/projects in them, so can pick the box I want and have everything needed already in there.


Like this one having lots of Disney and Birthday bits brought for Stevens album and book. They are 12x12 so take full scrapbook papers too.


I managed to get this album from the The Magic Kingdom where we celebrated Steven's birthday.


And these from Downtown Disney, again for Steven.


These were from Michaels, they were on the long receipt of 56 items :-)


Oh and finally, thought I had better show you how much my daughter knows me.


She had cut the ribbon and elastic off the Victoria Secrets bags and clothes she bought while on holiday and gave them all to me, lol...(hubby was not amused, hehehe)

Hahahahaha look at the size of your receipts!!!
Looks like you got some great stash there, did you take an empty suitcase with you?

Hi I'm Maria... said...

thought you would be proud susan...

and no, only allowed one case each now and ONLY 23kg (last time we went we were allowed 2 cases each at 32kg, boo hoo)

so managed to take less with us (15kg each case), as did a couple of washes of clothes while over there...

then bring back 3 cases filled to 23kg, hehehe...xx
