This is just a friendly reminder that Staples has Spiral Notebooks on sale for just $.01 each (limit of five, with minimum $5 purchase), through tomorrow only! If you have a few school supplies to buy, you might want to swing by and pick these up while you’re at it.
I took my son to Staples earlier this week (with probably every other middle schooler in North Alabama . . . ), and talked with a few very sweet ladies who were teachers at a local high school. Due to the changes in the Staples back-to-school policy, teachers are only allowed to get five of each item (compared to twenty-five last year), and they mentioned that at the school where they teach many more children could use them. This would be a great way to pay just a few pennies for notebooks while getting some free copy paper at Staples to use for printing coupons!
If you have $5 extra in your budget this week, here’s a quick scenario you could use to donate a few back to school items:
- Buy 4 3×5 index cards $.50 each
- Buy 4 Elmer’s Glues $.25 each
- Buy 2 composition notebooks $1 each
- Buy 2 Bic Velocity Pens $.50 each
- Buy 5 spiral notebooks $.05 each
- Pay just $5.05 for 17 items . . or just $.29 each!
It’s so easy to forget that there are those in need all around us, and this is just a tiny thing we can do to help others. Have you been able to donate free or inexpensive school supplies this summer? Please leave a comment to share (I’d love to hear!)
