Mystery Grab Bags
Life is always a gamble, especially with the Mystery Grab Bags.
You can score high priced or low priced items from the $2 to $4 Mystery Grab Bags. These bags are filled with clearance home decor and/or crafting supplies. As a bonus… I have a special add on that will show you how you can score a Michaels Grab Bag… here you go…
Do you love surprises? Opening a package of items when you don’t know what it contains can either be a trick or a treat. Sometimes, the items are worth the money while there are times when you’ll receive a box full of unusable items.
But, have you ever seen or heard of Michaels Grab Bags? They are only seen a few times a year and they cost $4 (some stores may sell them for $2, while some states don’t sell them at all). The best part of these grab bags is that they can have things in them that are worth ten times as much or more.
If you’re lucky enough to grab one of these before they’re all gone, you won’t be sorry.
What is a Grab Bag?
Michaels Grab Bags contain different kinds of items, ranging from home and holiday decor to craft materials.
Although these bags only cost four dollars each, they have been known to contain a lot of items and some worth quite a lot more than $4.
Michaels Grab Bags are usually available around holidays. This is a way they can reduce their clearance stock.
If you keep an eye out on their website you will see when their clearances start and what percentage they are at currently. Once they hit 80% you can start watching in the next few days for grab bags to be put out in store.
Before they put them out, though, head to the store and look at what’s on clearance and if it’s stuff you’d like to find in a grab bag. This is the inventory that will be chosen from to fill the grab bags. That way you can get an idea if you’re interested in buying one.
When you go to the store to see the clearance after it reaches 80% and before the bags are put out, if you see that the clearance is gone from the shelves, then it’s likely they will put them out the following morning.
What’s The Best Time To Get These Grab Bags?
Usually they put their grab bags out first thing in the morning. Don’t wait to grab yours since other people will also know to watch for them in the mornings.
A good tip to keep in mind is to be at Michaels as soon as they open so you can immediately snag a Grab Bag. Additionally, Michaels doesn’t generally put these grab bags out on the weekends or in the evenings, so make sure you keep your eyes open when you visit their store on weekday mornings.
Where Can You Find Them?
They are usually placed in metal bins or carts placed near the entrance. These grab bags are usually in white plastic or Michaels store bags or in a box.
You’ll know that it’s a Grab Bag if they are tagged with a yellow price tag that says “Clearance” and that they are priced at four dollars each.
Always remember to be consistent and patient. Rest assured you will be able to snag your very own grab bag if you follow these tips.
