Deals: Shiki Dreams, Back-to-School and More

Back to school or not? I still love shopping for school supplies. There are some really awesome deals out there again this year – Target, WalMart and Staples seem to have the best deals. I can recall when we were on road-trips as a kid, that my sister would need to stop at stores along the way to get her school supplies. She was hoping that the folders she would find in another location would be different from other kids’ stuff.
