    It's getting to be that time again! Who's going again this yr to the usual ones they have at Staples, OfficeMax, Office Depot, etc.? :)

    I've gone quite often, but I think I'll pass this time.

    I'll definitely go to Staples and Office Depot. I always get really cool (free) stuff. Last year I won a huge basket full of freebies on top of the regular stuff. I also bought some great things that were on sale for the first few hours.

    At my local Staples they also have a scavenger hunt, last year was the first year I participated in that. I almost won, couldn't find the mini highlighters to save my life (they were by the register). I don't know if I would do that again though.

    Both of them are after I start back to work.

    I am definitely going to check it out. My school says they bought us the basics (pencils, highlighters, etc) but I want to have back-ups.

    I am not sure. I think at this point, I have everything I need. But, I could use a few more 3-ring binders.

    I think I'll go to Staples and Office Depot even though it's after school starts! Office Max one seems kinda yucky. They have 20% off bag sales for regular people, why do teachers only get 15% off? I know I should be thankful, but...if they have 20% off for the general public, why should I go to a 15% off event?

    I won a $25 gift the last two years in a row at Office Depot. So yes, I'll be going.

    Proabbly 2-3 yrs ago, I won a free appetizer coupon for The Old Spaghetti Factory at Office Depot's teacher day. I still have the coupon in my wallet.
