I’ll start with a sale!

Scholastic started their big warehouse sale in south Arlington today. Typically the first Saturday of the sale damaged books are 50 cents. I’ll be there …will you?

My friend in Nashville just posted on FB about Forbes Most Gas Guzzling Cities.  It was no surprise to me the South beat out California and New Jersey, but without any public transportation in Arlington, I am thinking North Texas did not make the list because we are not officially at $4 a gallon for regular unleaded.

The article references a cool tool if you are wondering what the average cost of driving is. http://abogo.cnt.org/, can take your address and tell you not only the average cost of fuel, but also the impact on that fuel on the environment.


About schmeggo

Hi there and welcome to my little piece of web. I am a wife, a step mom,mom, and a teacher among other things. I am addicted to school supplies and getting things for as little as possible. During July and August I spend Sundays coming the papers and stalking my local Staples trying to find items at prices that I can get over 120 of them. During the school year, this is a personal blog of educational interest. I am by no means an expert on education and child rearing, but through trial and error, I hope we can help each other out. Whether you are buying for one or one-hundred, kindergarten to college, I hope that my little web space can help you find something trendy or cheap to make back to school on any day easier.
