Celebrating school supplies with a giveaway

For the past couple of weeks I have been loading up on office supplies. I don't know why but I have never really shopped school supply sales, but this is the time of year to rack up on paper and office goods. I now have a bin filled with crayons. They were just twenty-five cents per 24 pack. I bought two packs of pens for only thirty-three cents per pack -- that is 20 pens for sixty-six cents! I have recently purchased composition books for 15 cents each, Sharpies for half price and sticky notes that are cheap, cheap, cheap. The sales have been great. I am glad I finally caught on to this and I plan to take advantage of school supply sales every year.

I also have found some useful and decorative supplies I have decided to give away to one person who comments on this blog post. You can see the free gift, pictured above. Just leave a comment below and I will randomly draw a name and post it on Friday. I will ask you to sent me an email so I can get your snail mail address. The free gift includes sticky notes, a set of matching pens, a clipboard and a small set of Thank you notes.

I bought these items for myself and I am really enjoying them. The sticky notes (in above photo, at left) I placed on the inside of my Day Book with double-sided tape. I can now use the notes to become a little more organized. The little clipboard is something I use to hold recycled note paper. Using a paper cutter, I cut paper that has been used on one side into 5 x 7 pieces and reuse it in my little clipboard -- a 5 x 7 pad would also work but I don't want to purchase one when I can use my leftover paper.

I look forward to hearing from you and I can't wait to select a winner!
