Getting Back to the Swing of Things

I decided today that on lunch I would either go to A & P for triple Q's, or to Staples for some free stuff. I chose to do Staples today as my friend at work didn't bring in her Q's. Tomorrow, she will bring them in and we will hit up A & P.

I love Staples, I really do. I actually love anything/everything that deals with office supplies. Love it! So I went in to get the binders, pens, pencils and pop up tape dispenser with the Rebates. So here's what I got:

4 1 inch Avery Binders - 6.99 x 4 = 27.96 but will get it all back with Staple Rewards
2 Bic Mechanical Pencils (5 in each package) = 4.79 x 2 = 9.58 - 7.58 in special savings = 2. So they wer $1 a piece!
1 Pentel Hyper-G Pens (4 in a pack) - 3.99 which I will get back with the rebate online
1 Pop up Take desk Dispenser 2.99 which I will get back with the rebate.

So all in all, I spent 39.53 OOP, but will get back 34.94 in rebates so in actuality, I only spent 4.59 ($2 for the pencils and then other $2.59 in tax). Not bad!
