Well, it's now MANY years later and I still love Back to School Shopping season! This season is even more fun as I'm helping my daughter set up a classroom of her very own. She was a reading intervention teacher last year, but is joining the fifth grade team this August.
Here are a few sweet deals we found yesterday:
This week, Staples has a couple of 50% off coupons. One is for Paper Mate writing products.
These Paper Mate medium point Flair pens are a personal favorite of mine. They were $14 in the store (I will say I would never pay THAT much for them). With the 50% off coupon in hand, I can now grade papers with a bit of color for only $7.
Next on the list was Avery labels. I hand out 10 labels to each of my students and have them label their consumable folders, notebooks, and workbooks. If you're an Avery fan, the 50% off is a great deal. I bought the Avery 8160 White Inkjet labels. With the coupon, I paid $6.50.
Staples also had a dollar deal that I grabbed. I need this frequently:
And finally, I'm planning on making some punch cards and magnets for my classroom. I recently bought another Groupon for Vistaprint ($17 for $70 of product). From now through July 22nd, Vistaprint is having a 50% off sale. I haven't read the fine print yet, but wouldn't it be nice if it applied to everything I want? That would mean that I could get $140 worth of awesomeness for only $17! Add the 7 Day Select free shipping to that and what a deal! You know where I'm heading right now!
