School Supplies!

I've always really loved shopping for school supplies. (Yeah, I'm a nerd.) Now as a teacher, I get certain other perks when I am shopping for supplies. I went to Staples today because they started their penny items for school supplies. I got quite a haul!


I did two transactions to sweeten the deals.

Transaction #1:
(2) Packs of Accents - $2
(2) Mini Staplers - $2
Ready Letters - $5.29
(20) Packs of Pencils - $.20 (There is a higher limit if you are a teacher. Usually the limit is 2, but one store let me have 20 and the other store let me have 10.)
(2) Rolls of Tape - $2
(2) Packs of Paper - $7.38
(2) Packs of Wite-out - $2

Coupons Used: $5/$20
Total - $17.20

Rebates: $7.36 for the paper

$9.84 for everything after rebates!

Transaction #2:
(10) Packs of Pencils - $.10
(2) Erasers - $2.00
Mixed container of Paper clips and binder clips - $4.99
(2) Packs of Paper - $7.38
Giant roll of paper (not shown) - $7.29
$1 Donation

Coupons Used: $5/$20
Total - $20.27

Rebates: $7.36 for the paper

$12.91 for everything after rebates!

So all together I got all of this stuff for $22.75!!
