For A Dollar

If you're a paper-pencil writer (and aren't too picky about what you write in) this is something you need to hear. Go to Wal-Mart and stock up on notebooks now. Or sometime before September.

"Notebook Rainbow"
Before school shopping session is a wonderland of low-priced notebooks (even more so on no-tax weekend). Depending on your region, regular one-subject notebooks are priced from $0.20 to $0.50. Certain composition notebooks run for just a few cents more. If you buy notebooks often, you know that that is ridiculous.

Decorated notebooks are also cheaper than usual, but let's put it this way. I bought five plain notebooks for a dollar. My sister bought one decorated notebook for $1.97.

What writing related deals have you stumbled upon lately?


  1. Hooray for notebooks! People should be doing their school shopping now, holy smokes. I'd have to say the writing office furniture store where everything is free is a pretty good deal. xD

  2. Single-color notebooks are my writing weapon of choice :)

    I have boxes and boxes of these...

  3. I'm pretty sure you'd have a snowball's chance in hell of finding anything that cheap in any store in my city.

  4. Cover art means nothing. It's what is inside that counts.

  5. Darn good idea, buying notebooks now while they're cheap.

    I use them while I multi-task, write and run on my treadmill at the same time.
    Thanks for the tip.

  6. I stock up for my daughter when Target or Staples has a deal. I write nearly everything on my laptop.
