Michael's Bucket of Bottles Bargain

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I went to Michael's today to get one of those 18 count buckets of 4 oz. bottles since I had a 50% coupon. It rang up $4 something! I told the girl it wasn't right, so she went and got the little sticker on the shelf to scan. Still ran up at the four dollar price! She asked a manager who said maybe they were part of clearance and just didn't get marked. I don't know if this is just a mistake at my Michael's, but it would be worth checking out in your area. If they will let you use the coupon, even better! (These are the bottles that a coupler and tips will fit.) I bought three buckets!!

I'm not grasping what these are either, and I've been doing cakes off and on for 25 years............ icon_confused.gif You mean I missed something. icon_lol.gif

They are in with the candy-making supplies. It's a clear round tub containing 18 4-oz plastic squeeze bottles that you can use for just about anything (I've used them to ice cookies) and the top is the same size as a coupler ring, so you can fit any icing tip to the top of the bottle.

I had bought one in the spring. Now I'll definitely have to check these when I go into work tomorrow! Thanks for the heads up, and if it was only a fluke, then lucky you for finding it! Hurrah!

I did not see the bucket of bottles at Michaels but I plan to go tomorrow to find them. Thanks for letting us know. The 20" X 30" foam boards 3/16" thick are on sale for 98 cents until Sat. Actually they were out of the 3/16" so she let me have the 1/2" for 98 cents each. They rang up 4.99. These make great cake drums. Cut to whatever size or shape you need.

Thanks addietx for the heads up on the foam board! I guess I'll have to force myself to go back. icon_wink.gif Sorry I wasn't clear on the bottles. They are on a bottom shelf in the candy making section- next to the chocolate fountains. Hope everyone can find them.

I just got back from Michaels. I purchased the last bucket of bottles for 3.89. They were priced 12.99 on the shelf. What a deal! I got a rain check for 2 more buckets. Thanks so much for the post.

I got the last bucket at my Michaels store. It was on clearance so I don't know if this would be considered a discontinued item. They usually don't put it on clearance if they are going to continue to carry it!

cupcakes, I was told that since they are a clearance item that they will no longer be carrying that item, so once they are gone, that's it... she said something like, wilton might not be offering that product anymore or if they do, they will be a different size.

My coupler rings are too big for a tight fit on the bottles. I won't be able to change the tips. Has anyone else tried with success?

Addietex- The Wilton brand couplers don't fit well. The ones I use on the bottles I bought at a cake supply store. I'm sorry - don't know the brand and it isn't on the coupler anywhere. They are slightly taller than Wilton's, the opening is a little larger and the threads are different. They also don't have that "U"-shaped notch cut out of opening. If you are not able to find them, let me know and I'll check here and see if I can get some more.

Okay - I went to the Country Kitchens site and one of the couplers that they sell looks like the one I have. It is #1000 and is 35 cents. They don't say what brand it is. If someone has ordered this from them, maybe they could tell us if it fits the 4 oz. bottles.
