Last summer, I found a pin on Pinterest that said teachers can get composition books cut in half at Home Depot or Lowe's for cheap to no cost.
Well, while shopping at Walmart today, I had to peruse the school supplies (daughter rolls eyes and smiles knowingly) as they were being freshly stocked. Then, I found this and had to take a picture... Cute, huh? They come in lime, black, purple, pink and aqua.
Now in the next pic, you will notice the price!
Halfway down and across that aisle are regular sized composition books, both wide and college ruled. They cost either $0.50 for plain marble ones or $0.97 for a little fancier ones. The ones cut in half, which are the same number of pages, are $1.97!!! Unbelievable!! This is one of those instances that I would use to teach my students real-world lessons...are you getting the most bang for your buck, or buck ninety seven?!?!?! I think NOT!!
