    I've become a copy paper hoarder LOL - I can't help myself! It has a long shelf life {snicker} and it won't go to waste, better yet, it saves me money when I use it because so much of it is used for coupons.

    Love me some good paper deals LOL

    18 reams and counting ... :)

    there is a coupon for a free tote bag( office max) when you buy two packs of post it notes. and I had a 1.00 coupon for the post it notes. so I got 12 spiral notebooks, two packs of post it and nice reusable tote bag for 8.36

    Awesome info on the notebooks, Lisa! Thanks for sharing!

  • lisapoythress Aug 23, 2010

    They raised the limit on the 70 page spiral notebooks for 5 cents. You can actually get 12 instead of the 3 that were listed in the ad. They had an "adjusted" sign on the stack at the Crossroads Office Max. 12 notebooks x 5 cents a piece = .60! For 12 notebooks! That's a good deal! :)

    I have PLENTY of notebook paper at home but will get some to send to the teachers.

    Great point, teachersci! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great school year! My girls have orientation tomorrow evening and we can't wait to meet their teachers.

    Sometimes the office supply places will let teachers get more items at the sale price (you usually have to show a teacher ID from your school). It never hurts to ask!
