Staples Dollar(s) Deals

Hello! I'm Ashley, over at Lemons for Larue. I was super excited when Michelle asked me to team up with her on this great money-saving blog. I have always loved getting things on sale. However, I never realized how amazing the deals actually could be was until November 2009, when I started reading more about "playing the drugstore game".

And then, 11/26 happened.
And I went to CVS.
And I got many things for free.
And my heart was officially taken.
And now I'm head over heels in love with saving money
at all drugstores and grocery stores
(CVS had to deal with sharing my heart)
and now I try to make scenarios where I bring home the bacon (and more!)
and spend nothing or as close to nothing as I can.

And I'm excited to share my scenarios with you!

Staples has some great deals this week. They were a little sleepy (in my opinion) the past few weeks, but they finally woke up and gave me something to go there for. I'm "bolding" the ones I am going to get. Let me just put a little *plug* in to help out fellow teachers....if you don't feel like you need the dry erase markers, buy them for your child's teacher! Markers dry up way too fast and cost way too much. Staples ran this same deal back in January and I'm already dried up on most of my first pack!

  2. Although I am a coupon flunkie, I am super excited about the blog. This is one I will actually continue to follow-unlike the others that currently have 754 unread posts!!
