Yikes! School supplies are out and going on sale! I have already hit Wal-Mart and Staples. I was able to get pocket and prong folders for 15 cents each, Spiral notebooks for 20 cents each, and composition notebooks for 40 cents each. At Staples they have their 1 cent sale going on right now. You have to purchase $5 in merchandise but then with your teacher ID you can get 25 each of 2 packs of highlighters, index cards, and 8 packs of pencils for a penny each!! The regular limit is 2 per person but Staples gives teachers a limit of 25!! Make sure you ask at your local store though because my friend in Georgia had a limit of 24.
For the $5 purchase I found some really cute pens for $2 each so I bought 3 of them for my "Fun Pen Bin" that I will be using this coming year as part of my writing instruction.
