    The sharpie deal is $7.77. It is written on the ad that says $1.23 but you have to look a little closer. DRAT!

    No Biggie. It's not like I actually got in my car and went. :)

    Now I'm going to bed knowing I don't have to plan a detour tomorrow.

    The fabric book covers (even the "jumbo" ones), bend the covers and somehow manage to break the spines of the books because they don't quite fit our larger textbooks. The newer textbooks seem to be taller and wider (not necessarily thicker) than the old books.

    Office depot also has pencil boxes for 19-cents. Limit 5 but my store let me get 25 of them.

    I didn't like the quality of the .19 pencil boxes at Office Depot. Has anyone checked with Walmart to see if they will match the price?

    Thanks Pwhatley for letting us know where all those great sales are! I am getting ready to go out right now. Isn't it funny how excited teachers get about school supplies.

    We could add that to the "You know you're a teacher when....."

    Now I'm off to spend money I don't have. Yipeeeee!

    I thought that's what it was too. I got all excited until I went to the store and saw different. But $7.77 is still a good deal!

    Nah....I passed it up because technically our school supplies them. I just wanted more color choices and for the dream price, I didn't mind getting them. I'll save my money and spend it elsewhere.

    I bought some glue sticks and left them in my car as I ran my other errands. Afterward my husband said my glue sticks probably melted! Eccks! I doubt there will be any lasting harm (Hope). Guess that is what I get for shopping in Phoenix.

    Just a question cuz I'm curious. Do you all pay for that stuff or does your school give you a budget?

    Don't open them! Stick them upright in the freezer.
