    Does anyone know how to find out when the special teacher days are at different stores? I think they usually are the second weekend in August. I remember getting lots of fun free stuff! Thanks a bunch!

    I know that Staples had their penny sale twice already in NJ - not sure if they will be having another. But I just check the circulars every week in the Sunday newspaper.

    I called and check my local Office Depot to see when they would be hosting the Teacher's Appreciation Breakfast and they said it would be August 18th from 9-11

    Depending on the location, Office Max is either yesterday, today and tomorrow, or August 23-25. They do giveaways and stuff. Also the free laminating on Thursdays until September. I'm super excited for this coming Thursday!

    I went to Staples today for Teacher Appreciation Day. They gave out one of those accordion type folders with paper, pens, paperclips, etc. in it. They also handed out nice planning books. It was worth it. They did not have any great sales but things were tax free.

    Yeah we had the staples thing here today. I decided sleeping in would benefit me more. I don't really need anything anyway!

    You didn't miss much. I got one of those plastic expandable file folders with pens, highlighters, post it notes, paperclips, and a sharpie. I didn't buy anything while I was there, because they weren't running any specials...

    Same at my Staples. They (for some reason) had their sales LAST week, with the nickel pencils and erasers. Don't need to buy any more of either all year! :)

    When I asked about specials, the lady said that Staples sent out an email. I checked when I got home, but there was no coupon. So I went to Target and got some school supplies. :)

    I got the freebies at Staples (as well as Dunkin Donuts coffee and a donut) and bought a couple of things and used some of my $3 off coupons from turning in ink cartridges.

    Then I went to Big Lots, which had 10% off for teachers. They had more coffee and donuts, and gave away another planner that had stickers and bookmarks in it. The best buy Big Lots had was a cute box filled with teacher stuff - award certificates, postcards, bookmarks, stickers - and loads of each. $5.

    I went to Big Lots today too and was totally disappointed. They didn't have any of the coffee or donuts (even though the ad said they would), they didn't know where the free planners were (but found them after I waited for like 10 minutes), and they didn't have anything special set up for teachers.

    Plus the store smelled like pee. This is now the 4th Big Lots I've been to in three different states, and all of them have smelled horrible and looked filthy. I won't be going back.

    Oh, yuck. Mine is a mess, but doesn't smell, thank goodness. Mine had the coffee and donuts up front for any customer to have.

    I went to Big Lots yesterday, and they were giving 20% off instead of 10, they said the district store made a mistake. Then I also got a coupond for a new Mexican restaurant a couple of doors down for 20% off as well.

    I saw that little box with teachers stuff. Was it worth buying for $5.00? I picked it up but put it back. If it's good I'll go get one.
    Thanks
