We just saw these sale today...and this would be great to pass on not just to your members, but also others who support your ministry -- they can use their opportunities to stock up and donate to you at a later date. Imagine a whole church, going out & buying these supplies for an organization serving underprivileged youth. Even children can have a hand helping other children.
Staples has a sale which includes the following 1 PENNY purchases, after you buy $5 in additional supplies:
- 10 folders
- 2 bottles of glue
- 4 pencil cases
This purchase can be accomplished by buying 1 or 2 reams of multipurpose paper at $6.99 each, which comes with an opportunity to get a rebate of $5.99. (Your upfront costs could be as much as $15, but you get a refund of almost $12)
Office Depot also has a sale this week, which include
$0.25 protractor (limit 3)
$0.25 ruler (limit 3)
