Some shopping tips!

  •  
    Printer paper. You get special offer emails from an office supply store, you can get paper for FREE a couple times a year.

    Paper products. Bath tissue and paper towels are cheaper at the grocery store when they go on sale, and you can use coupons to save even more money.
