I always go to Hobby Lobby (St. Louis) when they have the foam boards 50% off and stock up. I just went yesterday to stock up and normally they charge $1.99 and when 1/2 off I get them for $1. However, yesterday I went to stock up and the price went up to $ 1/2 off is now $1.50. Anybody else notice this? Also, what's the deal with Michaels? I never see them in the sales flyer. Do they still go on sale?

You can get them at the Dollar Tree too. I think they're a tiny bit thinner than the regular kind, but lots of people use them.

Last time they went on sale at Michaels was a few months ago, I think...but I stocked up then so I haven't been watching for them to go on sale.

I haven't noticed @ HL because I'm just now down to an amount wherre I have to restock.

They're 50% off this week, so I will check and see if the price has gone up here too.

I saw them on sale at Michael's 2 for $3.00. No more $1.00 boards I guess.

My HL jacked up the price last time they were 50% off also, but as soon as the sale was over magically the price went back down to $1.99 a piece.
I think they've caught on to everyone who stocks up only when they are on sale.

I ran into the same thing, but when I looked closer it was really 2 different types of boards mixed together. The more expensive one has some kind of extra coating on it, or something.

Micheals had them on sale last week, 2 for $3. I have not seen them for $1 in a long time

You know, Sweetart, I thought the same thing. So I thumbed through all of their boards...even looking to see if they had some "old" priced ones that they didn't catch. NOPE. All of the boards were hiked up. That really stinks. Does anyone know where to get them cheap still...via internet or retail local stores?
