Final price $17.90 for 29 items (just 62¢ each)!

*Really my price should have been $14.90 because the Composition Books rang up at $1 instead of 50 cents.  I’m not sure if I got the wrong ones or if they weren’t ringing up right.  I was in a rush so I let it go.  Also, I shouldn’t have used the Elmer’s coupon on that size, but I just realized it.  Had I known I wouldn’t have purchased it at all since my kiddos are older and don’t need it.  I didn’t find BIC Xtra-Fun Pencils that would’ve been free and I also didn’t find the Paper Mate InkJoy Pens that I was looking for (see more on those here).  If you find these you can probably work out a much better deal than I did, but I’m happy with my trip today.

Don’t forget that the $2/10 Dollar General Digital Coupon is only valid thru 08/08.
