Michaels Grab Bag

You never know what you’ll score in Michaels grab boxes!

Love surprises and killer deals? Then, head to Michaels where you may spot $5 Grab Bags or Boxes!

Michaels offers these grab bags & boxes at the end of a season or after a holiday, and they’re packed full of crafts, decor, and more – way over the $5 value!

These fun clearance grab box events aren’t promoted, so it’s best to just call your local Michaels store and ask if your location has $5 Grab Bags or  Boxes available.

Michaels Grab Boxes

So, what’s inside Michaels $5 Grab Bags and Boxes?!

These grab bags can be filled with just about anything, but often include seasonal decor, crafting supplies, and much more!

While it isn’t always possible to tell what’s in these surprise bags, you can sometimes tell from the size of the bag or what is sticking out. We were able to see a little fall floral and fall wreaths poking out of some of the boxes at our store.

We’re also hearing reports that grab boxes may have Trolls art supplies, adorable seasonal tumblers, Halloween decor, tissue paper, costume accessories, Mylar balloons, and so much more! Those items add up to serious savings!

We want to know what you find in your box! Share in the comments below!

Hip tip: If your bag or box is full of items you don’t like and don’t want to regift, try selling them via Facebook Marketplace or OfferUp. You’ll likely earn back way more than what you spent!

    These were awesome! I have never gotten Michael’s grab bags before, but I got cute, decorative boxes inside of mine. Others had baskets. Or halloween crafts. $5 for the whole box: what a steal. I didn’t want to hog them though.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Glad to hear you were pleased with the items your score, Laura! Thanks for sharing!

    Are these a thing most of the stores do? I just called my local michaels and the lady could not have been more confused by what I was asking?

    • T

      They have been doing this for years. Maybe not all stores do it. But maybe they hadn’t worked at Michaels very long, or during the seasonal times. Because these boxes are almost always available after Christmas and other holidays.

    • Linda

      Is there a calendar of when the 5.00 box or bags come out?

  3. DSkipper

    I was in our Michael’s store today looking at the 80% off Fall and an associate told me I could fill my shopping cart for $5. So my friend and I did and when we got home and totaled up our purchases at the sticker price – it came to $1,235.

    • Kim Cash

      All I can say is WOW

      • 77_purity

        That’s amazing! I’ve done the grab bags but never fill the cart. Super score

    • T

    I once got St. Patrick’s decorations. Probably worth $100. Late this summer I bought a bag of silk flowers as large as a black garbage bag. I can make several wreaths from them, all for $5. Others are right. They are not in every store. Happy searching!

  6. Maggie D

    My daughter is so excited to be able to snag one of these boxes! I wish our Michael’s had them.

  7. Amy

    Wish we still had one here! This reminds me of when I was a kid and I would always buy the grab bags from Claire’s 😂

    • Sparrowfly

      I miss the Claire’s grab bag days!

    • Pensxfan

      Same!!! Also one of our Dollar stores in our mall used to have $1 grab bags filled with toys and stuff. Always grabbed those when I was a kid also!

    • SweetSavings24

      Aww I LOVED those Claire’s grab bags when I was a kid! It was so exciting!!

  8. Kay

    Several years ago the ones here were $2 grab bags. I got Nemo n Dory shirts and cookie cutters mostly. I think the total retail value was $80.

  9. Cindy S Hawk

    my michaels had 1 wreath for $5 or one of the little decorated cardboard boxes For $5 with a sign $5…what a rip off

  10. Melanie Liebel

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Tamara! These seasonal bags are found in stores only. In the U.S. Michaels stores. Hoping that helps!

      • Manal

  12. Ellen

    Is anyone’s Michael’s doing grab bags this year?

  13. Dana Smith

    Some Micheal stores in Alberta Canada , has grab boxes or bags.

  14. lisa Franklin

    Everytime i ask when is the store i shop at are doing the grab box i don’t get a straight answer. I shop at Muchaekz at L east twice a week. I would love the opportunity to purchase a grab box.

    • Obw

      They usually don’t know or can’t tell, so every Monday (after the second week past Christmas) I wait for them to open. Basically just wait until after it goes down to 80/85%off then they’ll have the grab bags before 90%off

  15. Vicki Davidson

    Do Michael’s have grab bags that we can order online?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Vicki! These are only found in store.

  16. Edith m Huffman

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You can always head in or call in to your location to double check. Hoping that helps!

  18. Ann Rogers

    Does Yakima Washington do that as well?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You could call your local store to ask, but it seems like most stores do this.

  19. Elizabeth S Decker

    When is the next date for the grab boxes?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      While we can’t say for sure, last year we did see them a few days after Valentine’s Day.

  20. Skye cullen

    My box had a lot of small stuff in them, if i could say the amount of it all, then i would say this was worth 5 dollars.
