Staples..... REALLY?????

Little Miss Kindergarten Okay, so after reading the wonderful blog post from Little Miss Kindergarten I am a little upset that Staples will not be allowing teachers the opportunity to purchase more than the store limit for back to school sale items. I just wanted to share a little bit about my favorite office store, Office Depot. While I was in Office Depot a few weeks ago printing some stuff for school, I had a conversation with the manager about a list of items they receive each week or so that they have to DISCARD!! I know I couldn't believe it either! Throw away valuable school supplies! NO WAY! he told me that often times, they are allowed to donate these items to schools. HELLO Sign ME UP!! Office Depot donated TWO boxes full of pens, black ball point, and my favorite..... Multi-colored GEL pins :) So exciting! They also donated a box of 80 markers. So if you are upset about the new Staples policy, Cheer up Buttercup! Check with your local office supply stores about donations!


  1. Hi Jodi!

    The past 2 years I have bought the penny folders from Staples and the prongs have fallen out...and it wasn't just me. Several other teachers have had problems too. Although I will miss some of the things they might limit us on I have found other places where I can still get good deals. That is great about your Office Depot! =)
