      If you have teens or tweens, you MUST shop Rue 21 for clothes. They have all the styles these kids want and at a good price! PLUS, they have coupons! If you sign up online, they send out coupons.
      I went today with a $40 off $100 coupon. Being tax free day, they had some good sales. I bought 10 shirts regularly priced $157.88, and I only spent $71.96. PLUS, because I spent over $40, I earned a $20 off $40 coupon good Sept 16 – Sept 27, and a $10 off $30 coupon good Sept 3- Sept 7th.

      In Chattanooga, the Staples is having a Teacher Appreciation Day today (Saturday) to coincide w/ the Tax-Free Day. They were kind enough to “honor” me last night when I showed them my ID. They gave me a really great bag full of office supplies that I need for my classroom. Head to Staples today if you’re a teacher. No purchase necessary either. :)
