CLEVELAND - With the start of a new year, many stores put their organizational products on sale like file folders, bins, and storage totes. It's also the time of year rebates and discounts pop up for eyeglasses since insurance plans start over in the new year. Joe Daugirdas also known as Joe the Coupon Guy shows you how to save on both items.
Daugirdas likes Staples savings for organizational items. Many are essentially free with the Staples Rewards program. This gives you a credit toward a future purchase. The store is offering 100% in Staples Rewards for heavy duty binders, file boxes, and storage boxes.
If you don't want to earn rewards for a future purchase, many other stores have their organizational totes and items discounted as well. Just check your favorite store's circular.
