The Expansion

I finally outgrew my sons red zippered binder. I had so many pages I thought I’d have to add a second binder (this was not going to go over very well). 

During a quick stop at Fred Meyer recently they had these huge Case It binders on sale. Originally 24.99 they were marked down to 19.99. I thought it was still too much to spend on a binder so I didn’t buy it. My little red binder continued to scream in pain on a daily basis for the next week and I kept thinking how I SHOULD have just bought the other binder.

 I stopped back at Fred Meyer thinking the nifty binders would all be gone.. but they weren’t. They were marked 50% off the last marked price. Yeah me! I got it for 9.97!! WHOO HOO. It is a happy bright blue color and it is HUGE. A week later I went back and got a clip board accessory for it so I could keep my notepad handy. I would have loved to get the binder in my favorite color.. but there is no way either my son Carl or my sweetheart Paul would haul a pink binder around. On the upside this binder is so large it does have an over the shoulder strap and I could use it as a shield should I need to fend off any dragons in the cereal aisle.

Happy Saving!
