Groceries and School Supplies

I did pretty well when I went to the grocery store yesterday.  In total I spent $156.43, which mostly went towards food though I did buy some school supplies while I was there.  The school supplies only cost $12.80 out of that total.

So you are probably wondering why I'd buy school supplies at the grocery store.  Well, firstly it was convenient.  I was already there and didn't have to drive around spending gas money to go to another store.  Secondly, they were on sale.  For $12.80 (including tax) I got:
  • 2-8 oz. bottles of hand sanitizer
  • 2-8 count boxes of washable markers
  • 3-24 count boxes of crayons
  • 3-4 oz. bottles of glue
  • 3-1 subject spiral notebooks
  • 2-6 pack of portfolio folders
  • 3-10 pack of #2 pencils
There were other supplies on sale, but I didn't need any of them.  Other things I needed were not on sale so I didn't buy them.

The rest was to buy food, which should hopefully last at least two weeks minus the occasional trip for milk and bread.

I am a school supply addict. I'm a teacher so it must be in the blood. I envy you your low prices on supplies. They are so much more up here in Canada. That purchase of yours would have cost triple that at least, and that would be on sale.
