I get the weekend paper because I like to cut coupons. Sometimes on Sundays I’ll briefly flip through the ads of a few stores. One I like to glimpse at is Staples, because especially near the beginning of school. They have items for $.01. That’s right, one cent people. Usually they have limits of 2,5,10 it varies. But if you are a teacher then the limit is 25. So, within the last few weeks I have gotten 8 packs of pencils for a penny, 100 sheet packages of notebook paper and today I got folders (25 of them of course). I just can’t believe that I can give them a quarter and walk out of the store, it’s amazing. So, word to the wise check the staples ads and you might find a new use for all those annoying pennies we complain about.
You truly have a "teacher mindset"! Your classroom someday will be filled with wonderful, "cheap" treasures!!
