Besides the bottled water and Vitamin water, I also got some more of my file boxes (they are also known as banker's boxes) and saw a wonderful item that I have been in need of to help keep up with the bills.
I'll give a picture tour later on to show how I use the storage boxes with my filing system. The desk organizer will be very useful to use in my office, once I can get furniture moved in and get things better organized, plus get a new desk for the office.
Total bill: $158
I love the deals that Staples and Office Max have every once in a while, the promo where if you can fit it in a bag, you get a percentage off. Today was the last day of getting one of those deals with a 20% off coupon.
What I got:
A smaller Staples Better Binder, along with inserts to house business cards, some paper and some pockets. This is going to be somewhat of a home binder, with the business cards coming from the various companies I use for repairs and maintenance. I already have a large binder for emergency preparedness, however I need to get the vital records documentation sorted in that (such as Decker's death certificate, etc.).
Also, two packages of the expanding file pockets. These I use in conjunction with the banker's boxes. I've used this system for years, I just got a little messy and not very good at keeping it up since Decker's death, so I need to get back into the groove of the system.
Total: $44 after discounts.
99 Cent Only Store:
This was a store located next to Walmart. I couldn't get into the Walmart parking lot and ended up parking at this store instead, so I thought I would check it out to see what it had. I've been to discount stores before, this one is larger and has more items, including it's own grocery section.
2 packages of fortune cookies
1 package of almond cookies
Letter organizer for a desktop (to be used in the dining/entryway area of my home for outgoing letters and bills)
Air fresheners (the scent is hard to find at Walmart - they are usually out of stock)
2 packages of black ink pens
1 package of sticky post-it notes
1 Dish drying mat for my emergency supplies
