So, I picked up a couple of friends, and we headed to Staples today for the penny sales. They said that we could go through the line as many times as we wanted unless we were holding up the line. That was reasonable. I ended up going through the line 5 times, and I spend a little under $50. I'll get almost $20 of that back in rebates, though. My puchases included 125 folders, 600 pencils, and 4 reams of copy paper . . . and then there were various other "must have" items that I just had to have. Coming up with a $5 minimum purchase to get the penny stuff was no problem. I think we made a pretty good haul!
