Back to School sales! Part 1

So as you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been on hiatus for…well… a long time. Having a very active 19 month old (and now being 8 months pregnant) has really put a halt to my “personal time”. With that, my couponing has gone down the drain. 😦 I am trying to slowly get back into it as we are going to need the extra $$ with the new bambino… and new-to-us car…

2010 Pilot!

I was very proud of myself the other day for getting 1/2 gallon of ice cream at Basha’s for only 88¢ each! (In-ad coupon to make it $1.88, then manufacturer coupon for $1 off so 88¢ total). It got me on a little high, made me really want to get back into saving money. So today when I saw the Staples ad with the BTS items on sale, and since I needed to drop off some empty ink cartridges anyways (haven’t done THAT in months either!), AND my church is doing a BTS drive next Sunday, I thought it was the perfect time to get back on the horse.

This week at Staples there are lots of things for 1¢, 25¢, 50¢ or $1.00 (with minimum $5 purchase). There is also a $5 off of $30 coupon in the ad and online to use. I also had a couple store credits ($60 total) that I have been saving. I needed to order some ink for my printer so I knew I would hit the $5 mark, no problem.
