FREE School and Office supplies

This is a great time of year to shop for school supplies and office supplies.  I stock up for the whole school year and keep some items to use myself.  Below are some of the better deals I've found so far for this week.  

Target has Papermate pens for FREE.  You can print off a coupon HERE  (you will need to click on the category stationery in the left column) for $.50 off a Papermate product, and many stores have them on sale for only $.50 making them free.   The $1 off Bic coupon should also get something free or very cheap.

Office Max has FREE backpacks!   Click HERE for more info.
They also have $.01 2 pocket folders, $.05 crayons, $.15 for a 10 count of pencils and my favorite $.50 composition books!   My kids love composition books and they're regularly $1.59

Staples also has FREE backpacks.   Click HERE for more info.  They also have 1 cent packages of multi-purpose paper (after easy rebate), 1 cent packages of Bic ballpoint pens (reg. $1.99) and Zebra pens (reg. $4.99) for only $.25!

Office Depot has a 6-pack of spiral notebooks for only $.50 as well as 5 cent rulers and $.95 packages of office paper. My favorite deal they have is a 2  Fiskars 7" scissors for only $3 (reg.$4.29 each!)  somehow we need to replace our scissors every year.   They just "disappear". 

So get out and save some money on school and office supplies!!

Free Walmart Samples!

I get quite a few freebies from different places all over the internet.   But I have to say that the Walmart ones are my favorites.    They're easy to order, come quickly (unlike so many other freebies) and ALWAYS come (again....unlike many other freebies).

As of this posting there are currently four available.  

TENA   sample for bladder leakage.

PRILOSEC   for heartburn

DOG TREAT   by Better Than Ears

OMEGA-3 FISH OIL (KRILL OIL)   for cardiovascular health

Go check them out quickly.   They only have a certain amount, so the freebies change frequently, and they run out of any particular one fairly quickly sometimes.
