The Great School Supply Escapade of 2013 (Includes car covered in Post-its!)

29 May


I was perusing one of my favorite websites for good deals on Saturday, and found that there was a big school supply sale going on at Best Buy- where almost everything was 50 cents. I stopped by, and to my surprise the area was untouched! I grabbed up tens of dozens of items and loaded up a few bags. Below are two out of the three pages of receipt that I got. Notice the final price – $63.21 – and the amount saved $925.00!!!PostIt56 PostIt55

Here is a look at the load I brought back – note the packs of yellow post its – Those are 10 packs of 90 super sticky notes with MRSP of over $14.00 each! And yes, they were 50 cents.PostIt02On Monday after the church picnic and softball game, I decided it was time to put some of the post-its to good use. So I orchestrated a massive vehicle post-itification. Those participating other than myself were Janek Burton, Jake Alexander, Ryan O’Leary, Barbara Burkholder, Joshua Griffin, Lucas Iforgothislastname, and some others who stopped by for a little bit to help out. The vehicle belongs to dear Amanda Hooper, and I hear she took it all in stride when she discovered the decoration.

    Dear Josh, We are bewildered and trying to comprehend the mind that comes up with such an incident as this. It leaves us thinking such things as amazing, incredible, bottom line, unbelievable. This was good. Thanks for making us laugh.

    A merry heart doeth GOOD ~~~~~

      I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures! I think this may be an incident that goes down in MBC folklore!
