How Do I Make the Most Out of Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the year's biggest shopping days. Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving, and Cyber Monday is the Monday following Thanksgiving. Both days are characterized by tremendous discounts and doorbuster deals for all your favorite products. Many retailers offer in-store and online Black Friday deals, and some stores even start their sales on Thanksgiving Day. On the other hand, Cyber Monday was created as a way to encourage people to shop online, and it has become one of the busiest online shopping days of the year.
So how can you, as a crafter, make the most of Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Well, you can take advantage of the deals from these events to stock up on your supplies for future paper crafting projects (your holiday cards are waving at you!). With so many retailers offering steep discounts, it's easy to find great deals on cardstock, stamps, dies, markers, inks, and other crafting supplies.
How to Snag the Best Paper Crafting Products on Sale This 2022
If you're looking for the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on paper crafting this 2022, then you've come to the right place! Here at Altenew, we love nothing more than a good sale - and we know our customers do too! That's why we've compiled a list of savvy shopping tips and where to find all the best Black Friday deals on paper crafting supplies.
Since it’s just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how to be a smarter shopper this Black Friday. Here are the following steps you should do to prepare yourself, your wallet, and your crafting room for the impending shopping spree:
1. Make a List of the Things You Need
With all the exciting promotions and doorbuster deals, it can be easy to get caught up in the hype and spend more than you intended. However, there are a few simple tricks that you can use to make sure you stay on budget. First, list the items you need or want before you start shopping. This tactic will help you stay focused and avoid buying things you don't really need.
Check your crafting inventory. Are you running low on stamps? Or maybe you want to replenish your stock with some new embossing folders? Whatever product it is, take note of it and make sure to prioritize these items on your supply run. You don't want to be short on cardstock when you're making your cards this holiday, don't you?
Once you've had the rundown on the items you need, that's the time you can make room for the items that catch your eye. Besides being a great time to be thrifty, Black Friday is also the perfect time to finally buy the things you've been eyeing for some time but couldn't find the budget for. So many paper crafting products will be on sale, with some store discounts even going up to 60% OFF! So make sure to take advantage of the offers and buy in bulk! You'll definitely get more bang for your buck.
2. Organize Your Craft Room to Make Some Space
We know this will be hard to hear (LOL), but it's time to finally clean your crafting room! The holidays are a great time to get crafty, and Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to stock up on supplies. However, if your craft room is cluttered and disorganized, finding the supplies you need would be challenging, let alone making space for new ones. Here are a few tips for organizing your craft room to make space for Black Friday deals:
- Start by purging any supplies that you no longer use. Use them in a project, donate them to a local school or senior center, or sell them online.
- Then, take inventory of the supplies you have left and group them by type. For example, create separate storage bins for paper crafting, sewing, and painting supplies. We recommend buying medium and large storage pouches for all your stamps, dies, and primary crafting tools!
- Next, designate specific areas of your craft room for each type of activity. For instance, set up a small table for stamping near natural light to see if all parts of your image are stamped fully, boldly, or clearly. For working with alcohol markers, make sure to designate an area with ventilation, as inhaling alcohol ink fumes is harmful! This method will also make it easier to clean up since you'd know what tools belong to which area and prevent accidents (ex. ink spilling on your die cuts, washi tape sticking to stamps, etc.).
- Finally, put everything in its rightful place and label each storage bin or drawer. This will help you stay organized and find what you quickly need when crafting.
With a little effort, you can turn your craft room into an organized oasis—and make space for all those Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchases!
