|Cheap, too. |
IF you play it right.
Pencils were 8/pack so 200 pencils cost 25 cents. And I went back the next day (It's near the post office). and the next day. and whenever I drive by on some other errand .... like Stop & Shop next door. Did I mention that my wife who teaches elsewhere comes in at the same time? 1 cent for 2-pocket portfolio. BAM! 25 cents, 25 folders 1 class done. Paper and Single-subject notebooks are 25 cents. No limit. You should see my hall closet ... $10 buys a hell of a lot of stuff at these rates.
As for books, we FINALLY got the business office to realize the benefits of a credit card for Amazon. If you can, schmooze the people who do the work up there and show them how much can be saved when you order through Amazon and Amazaon Used&New for your textbooks and such. It made a big difference for us when we showed them how much we saved.
You can thank me later.
