Free Samples & Bargains

Don't get too excited, it's not what you think!  I did get some bargains today, but the "free samples" came from Katie at home...

She wanted to offer the other girls (Emily and her friend) food samples, so she set herself up a station with samples of watermelon, peanuts, triscuits, bananas, and cereal.  All of which were a huge hit!  (Notice, there were 3 samples of each item - Katie didn't want to leave herself out!)

This morning, I went to Staples (again) to stock up on more bargains.  I got a pack of inkjet photo paper and 25 packs of lined notebook paper, all for a grand total (after rebates) of $0.75!  That's right, 75 CENTS!  So here is just a portion of items I've been stocking up on during these sales:

Pictured here are
  • 6 reams of paper
  • 25 packs of lined notebook paper
  • 3 composition notebooks (more on another shelf)
  • and a pack of photo paper.
This stockpile rings in at less than $4.00!

Now you might ask, what on earth will you do with all that paper?  Well, some will be donated to our new co-op.  And some will be used by us for school.  And, in case you're wondering, we do recycle. :)
