Staples?

Have you ever gone to Staples to purchase back to school supplies for your kids?

I was looking at their sales flyer yesterday and looks pretty good. I was wondering how it compared to Walmart or Target.

No we've only been to Staples a few times ever .. it was more convenient to get the stuff they carry at other places in our case .... where we use to live we had to go there a few times to use their copiers or fax machine, that's about it.

Yeah, I have gone to Staples a couple of times. But I never compare the prices. When I go in, it's because I can't find what I am looking for elsewhere. But that doesn't mean I don't like the place. I see things in there, that I don't see other places. It's a good store, just a little more out of the way for me.

Yeah I was wondering how the prices were compared to other places it will be out of the way for us to go too. LOL

nope, I just go to Target. Between the cartwheel app, the 5% pharmacy rewards, and my 5% red card I don't think I spend that much. I do the same thing with groceries...

We go to staples a lot so usually buy his school stuff there (though we have less than.most of you) We can use DHs business account which is why we go, otherwise just supermarkets

Yes.  But check their limits and gimmicks.  They can have some really good deals, but there are usually limits, and sometimes you have to buy $5 worth to get the penny and quarter deals.  So I look at what is on sale there, what I need, and I buy exactly what I need to buy to make the most for my buck.  Office Max is the same way.
