    Has anyone seen any recent sales for cheap notebooks? I don't care what kind (spiral, marble, etc). I have been waiting for staples to have a penny sale but I don't know if that's happening!!

    Wal-Mart has (had) spiral and composition notebooks in their back to school section for $.25. I bought class sets of each about a month ago!

    Wal-Mart here has spirals for 15 cents and composition for 25 cents. Big Lots had spirals 10 for a dollar, but that sale might be over.

    Not here. I had to buy a replacement set last year and they were a dollar apiece. I was not happy! (I bought two sets this year while they are on sale!)

    Weird. We didn't have limits on ours here. I went through and bought 200 at once. They were completely restocked an hour later.

    I bought a bunch of the composition books at Walmart for 25 cents. Unfortunately, I've been trying for a month to get more, and they haven't come in!

    Target always has had the packs of 10 for $1...many years in a row, so watch their sales. WalMart does always have the comp books for a quarter, but only at this time of the year. They are on sale in August only around here. They cost about $1 each after school supply sales are over.

    I was just at Staples and they had notebooks for $.35. When I was there a few weeks ago they were $.50 for 6. I guess it's all about timing.

    On the upside, they have big things of construction paper for $2... and pocket/fastener folders for $.05 -- no limit! :woot:
