Paper Straw Packs $5 Shipped



There are some fun packs of paper straws available today for $2.99 each.  These are fun patterns and colors and some come in themes like Rainbow or Minecraft or Superhero.

I love paper straws to bring color and fun to parties but it can be hard to find a variety of colors or interesting patterns.

I love some of the options for Christmas- the blue and red is so pretty.

Your shipping is $2.75 for the first pack of 25 straws and then $.75 for each additional.  I suggest grabbing a few packs to make it worthwhile.

Office Depot/Office Max Teacher Appreciation Days

teacher appreciation days

This week Office Max and Office Depot are offering Teacher Appreciation Days.

On August 1-4 and again on August 29-Sept 1, teachers can head into Office Max and Office Depot stores to get a coupon for 25% off your purchase.

The coupon will exclude ink and other technology purchases but you should be able to use it on most supply items.

You will also get a calendar for fee filled with various savings coupons.

They aren’t specific about exactly what the calendar includes but the 25% off alone is probably worth stopping by.

You will need to sign up for the free rewards program to take advantage of this offer.   I would also plan to bring your teacher ID into the store for the 25% off coupon.


I also just wanted to mention in case you missed it in the weekly school supply deals post, Office Max and Office Depot have a 12pk of Ticonderoga pencils for just $1.00.

That is the best price I have seen and these pencils are totally worth it.  I have to stop by Office Depot to get one supply item we haven’t found elsewhere and I plan to grab a pack or two of these myself.

Please be sure to check your local ad to confirm this offer is available in your area.  Sometimes ads can vary from region to region.

And if you don’t mind investing a bit more, the original baby moccasins are from a company called Freshly Picked and you can pick up a pair from Nordstrom here in several color choices.

These are pricey but they are handmade, real leather and have a lifetime guarantee.  My babies never received Freshly Picked Mocs but we did get some tiny shoes they wore as babies that were so gorgeous.  I have saved them all for future Grandchildren.
