*Note - I realize that you can just buy the poly-fill and stuff the pillows, but I covers that can be taken off and washed. I have little boys, remember?
A while ago I discovered pillow forms at IKEA and realized that I could save a lot of money if I used them. They only have specific sizes, but considering the savings, I was more than willing to sew pillows again.
Joann's 20x20" Pillow form = $18.49 - IKEA's INNER 20x20" Pillow form $2.99
Joann's 14x14" Pillow form = $6.99 - IKEA's IRMA 14x14" Pillow form $1.99
So EVEN IF you bought 2 of each size pillows at Joann's for 40% off with all your coupons you will spend
$33.33 but at IKEA for the same amount of pillows you will spend $10.85 (I'm calculating in WA state taxes). Just about 1/3rd of the price!
Of course, let's face it - when you take coupons to Joann's either what you want is already on sale and not as low as 40% off so you can't use any coupons, OR it's not on sale and you only have 1-2 coupons so you pay full price for the rest. Am I right?!
