As the final project, my students will be submitting bookmarks to the student art show. I'm hoping the display case is available. If not, I need a back up plan. I stopped at Michael's to see if I could find an inexpensive poster frame. They had all sizes on sale for $9.99 which was great, but frames have to be hung with wire. There was only a very thin chipboard and I wasn't sure it was deep enough to take screw eyes. There were other frames not on sale. Of course. I didn't want to spend the moolah. It was a little out of my budget, but I didn't see much of a choice. The frame will be put to use if not this time then a future time. That's the rationale. I purchased a picture hanging kit and some Christmas picks on sale.

I went to stand in the check out line. There was a woman in front of me and another in the middle of her transaction. The woman conducting her business looked at the woman next to her and asked if she would be able to use a 40% off coupon. No. She handed the coupon to me.

"Would you be able to use this coupon?"

"Yes, thank you!"

The coupon brought the cost down to almost the sale price of the other poster frames and more in line with my budget. That woman was a godsend and I thank her for her random act of kindness.
