    Okay, tomorrow is teacher appreciation for my area. Couple of questions first, the staples near me is an hour away, is it worth it? Or should I go to places closer like Big Lots, Office Max, and Office Depot? Out of them, which are the best? TIA!

    For the most part OD/OM/Staples are all the same. Ive heard Big Lots not so great- not one near me, so I don't know for sure. I wouldn't drive an hour to Staples.

    Our Staples isn't open yet. The only store close to me is Big Lots. I'm looking for a floot mat to put under my desk chair. Any suggestions?

    I wouldn't drive an hour just for the Teacher Appreciation stuff. I seem to remember some cookies and a little bag with a water bottle, some post-its or something like that, and maybe a pencil and some paper clips. That may not be the exact contents, but that's pretty much what I remember.

    Do they have special deals on TA day, too?

    I asked at our staples and they said that they have flash drives they are giving away this year. OM and OD I am not sure about. I usually do not go to those they are too far away for me.

    Here they are serving free breakfast for Teacher Appreciation (at Staples). I wouldn't go out of my way though. I might hit Big Lots tomorrow for some shelf paper and some rainy-day recess toys.

    I've never gone, but I am going to swing by Office Depot tomorrow. They are supposed to have breakfast for all and goodies for the first 50 (I think was the number). We'll see. Now that I live 20 minutes away it won't be bad to check it out.

    Does Big lots do anything? I stepped in mine today and nothing was out...not even a sign showing it was Teacher Appreciation day!

    Staples and Office Depot was good this year though. Office Depot had a recyclable bag with folder, sharpie, blank CD, glue dots, colored pencil, and gave away free Chick-fil-a chicken biscuits! Staples had a 512 mb flash drive, a paper clip holder (the ones with the magnetic hole at the top) and a plastic file folder full of goodies!

    My Staples gave away the flash drive (I think that's the same at all stores) and a weekly calendar and a big desk calendar. Then they gave out tickets and had 85 prizes to give away. They were calling out numbers every 2 or 3 minutes. I won a bag of goodies (6 pk spiral notebooks, book covers, filler paper, a small desk organizer, 3 subject notebook and a couple of other little things). They had a great breakfast with sausage biscuits and lots of homemade cookies and cakes.

    Office Depot had a shopping bag with an expo marker, post it picutre hangers, a blank CD, and a folder. They had breakfast too, but I had already eaten at Staples, so I had to pass it up.

    I got an invitation to the Office Max Teacher Appreciation Day today - ours is on August 16th.

    Hope everyone enjoyed being APPRECIATED! I know I did.

    I went to Big Lots earlier this morning. There was no indication that it was suppose to be a Teacher Appreciation Day. I think all we receive is a 10% off throughout the day. I thought they were going to have donuts and maybe a free gift, but there was no sign or an area for teachers, just teacher supplies.
