Staples back to school supplies for pennies


Staples wants your back-to-school business and this year is trying to compete with penny deals and freebies on school supplies. You can get report covers for 20 cents each, plastic binders for 25 cents each, pencil boxes for 50 cents, and plastic rulers and pencils for free.

You can find out all the details in the weekly circular and find out what else there is by visiting your local store.

Of course, once Staples gets you in the door, they're hoping you'll go home with a lot more in your shopping cart -- anything from backpacks to furniture to computers. So if you're only interested in spending a few dollars, stick to the penny bins.
