Once upon a time I was single-handedly keeping Scholastic in business with my book purchases. Ahem. I mean, sure, save money, but deny my children books? Never! And then I wised up and got Scholastic to hire me, and now they send me books for free. This is known as Nerd Nirvana.
But if you don’t work for Scholastic, you can still get great books and great bargains from them—like now: Through February 23rd, 2009, check out the Scholastic President’s Day Sale, and then use coupon code AFFPD to take an additional 20% off select sale items.
And then it’s not shopping, it’s educational and therefore 100% justifiable. Yay!
