First off, I wanted to let my followers know that I have decided to discontinue the Wednesday Website linky.  People just weren’t linking up and following.  I think I’ll probably still showcase websites from time to time on Wednesdays (and maybe reinstitute my Woohoo Wednesdays too!) but I’m going to take a bit of break.

Next, I have some exciting news for you!  I am teaming up with a group of my best blogging buddies to give away a $200 Staples gift card thanks to Coupons.com!  As I mentioned in my deals post on Monday, I am cheap!  I am a regular couponer and get a thrill from finding great deals.  Coupons.com is one of my go-to sites each week so I can stock up on my coupons!  They even have online coupon codes that you can use to help you score deals online.  Here is their coupons for Staples.com.
They also sent me a $50 gift card that I can use to help me get ready for the school year.  I’ve been trying to decide what I want to spend it on.  I can use it each week as I stock up on their weekly deals.  Or, I could use it to make some of my big purchases for the year.  Decisions, decisions.
I know I want my students to have a multi-folder writing system for the year.  I’ve been thinking of buying folders when I get good deals and then binding them.  But, I saw these on their website and I thought I might just buy them instead of taking all that time and energy.

The technology in my classroom is absolutely non-existent and so I’m also thinking that the gift card would go a long way towards helping me buy a projector.  I’ve been pricing them all over and this one at Staples is a great deal.  Plus, Acer is a well known technology brand, so I feel like I could trust it.
AND, I have signed up for the Teacher’s Reward program so I know I’d get a great rebate from that.  For now, I think I’m going to hold onto it so that I can make sure I find the absolute best deal to spend my money on.
Now it’s your chance to win a Staples gift card from Coupons.com.  Enter using the rafflecopter below.  You only can enter on one of our blogs so while you’re here make sure and enter!
