Back-to-School Sales = A FULLY stocked Office!

Wowza!  This has been a crazy-busy summer.  We haven’t been home much.  It’s hard to believe my kids will be back to school in 2 weeks’ time!  It feels like the summer just began!

NOW is the time to stock up your “office supplies” for the year--while there are all these fabulous back-to-school sales!  
Each office supply store has several *new* loss leader sales every week!  Stock up on all those pencils, pens, paper, folders, erasers, crayons, composition notebooks, markers, rulers, and scissors while they are pennies on the dollar!
This doesn’t have to be hard.  I have a friend who waits for the ads from the stores or she won’t go…which means she only gets one or two of these deals.  I find it easier to stop by when I’m already driving in the area.  (I seem to be in the area at least once a week.)   I run in quickly, pick up an ad and grab only the items on a fabulous sale.  That’s it-- NO extra items.   Since the ads change each week—it’s amazing how many items these sales add up to be by the end of the back-to-school frenzy—without too much extra work from me and very little expense!  If I didn’t get everything I needed by the end of the frenzy, I finish picking up the last odds & ends the week school starts (because that really the back-to-school finale!)
Happy Pinching Pennies…

PS  If you are one of those people who needs to see the ads…your local Office Depot and Staples ads can be found online!
