    Well, during the last month with the onset of BTS deals, I did manage to shore up my copy paper supply quite nicely and cheaply :) Thank you to Staples, Office Depot, Harris Teeter. And cheap/free rollerball pens due to the kindness of our drug store chains as well as Staples. I think I'm good for a little bit LOL

    I have a huge pile of receipts I have to deal with from this past week of SD, drug stores and office supply store sales/rebates.

    I need to stay home! I need to stay out of the stores! Make it stop Faye!! lol

    Tonight I swung into local CVS and snagged 12 Right Guard/Dry Idea deodorants for $2.01 (sales tax only) with the BOGO sale and BOGO coupon. Some will be saved, some will be donated and the circle is complete ;)

    I have already picked mine up and I'm about to enter in the easy rebate - thanks for the reminder HG!

    Just in time Faye. I'm almost out of paper. Will be making a trip to Staples!
    Thank you!!!

    Staples had it last week for $0.01 a pack - you just missed it.

    Hi Stephanie, There are no deals that good in the Sunday paper for notebook paper (that I could find). Walmart has had them at a pretty low price for weeks so that is where I would suggest.

    Are there any good deals on notebook paper? I know last year Staples had it for $0.01 a pack. I bought 15. I haven't seen any this year.
