Everyone loves a good deal right? I tend to find the best deal on stationary and school supplies around October and November. Usually, my deals are on Mead Flex Binders, but this past year it was Pilot G2 gel pens.

I happen to stop into my local Walgreens for a look around, mainly looking for flex binders. But I found something much much better!

      If you have time, take a section and check out the clearance section at every store you go to. I don’t always find good deals, but sometimes I come across ones like this one.

    I have never looked for good deals when it comes to pens…
    But I love a good deal when it comes to high quality clothes!

      I hate clothes shopping, so I should probably try to find good deals on high quality clothes so I don’t have to replace them as often. Thanks for the reminder!

    I love getting sales! I was at staples the other day and got some binders on sale! Can’t argue with a great sale 🙂

    That is a great deal! I don’t even know my latest great deal. Probably the bulk size fruit juice nearly 50% off :).

      That works! Food-wise I got cans of Israeli olives for $1.50 each! I love olives so this was a fantastic deal for me. (Normally priced at $6.00 each!)

    My husband teases me about how many pens I have. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a deal like yours, though!

    When I was little I was OBSESSED with gel pens. My friends and I actually used to trade them like they were things of high value. I’ve recently fallen back into this obsession…I would have LOVED to have caught this sale.

      Oh gel pens! I was into gel pens from middle school through my Associate’s degree, then I just stopped using them. I still have a few left from those years, but don’t buy them as often anymore.

    That’s the only time I buy things like that, when I can score on them big time! I love all those fun colors!

    I love pens! I don’t usually buy them though and seem to have a large collection from various workplaces..

      I get that. I have a bag where I collect cheap pens that I get from wherever and give them to my mom, who’s a teacher. Her students never seem to have pens.
