For those who are interested in trying the cheapie paper at HEB, they have an online ordering service.
GTC 70-count spiral notebooks are running 88 cents right now, but they will drop to around a quarter in July/August:
The current price at HEB for the Norcom Big Scratch pad (4 X 6, 220 pages) is $1.58. It's a terrific little notebook for lists and, well, whatever else you can think of to use this size of notebook for:
I provide the links not because I'm affiliated with HEB through my husband, but because I'd recommend these products, anyway, to any FP user on a budget, or those simply looking for an inexpensive paper for ordinary writing tasks.
Also: I don't know much about the shipping rates. After all, when I need something from HEB, I only have to go into the store that's less than a mile from my front door, or to one of the 50ish other stores in San Antonio. I did order some stuff from them when they gave us free shipping when the service first launched, so that my husband could tell customers what it was like. I only remember that I made use of it to order every non-perishable item on my grocery list rather than having to waste time going through all the aisles for them. Some HEBs are H-U-G-E, like the Bandera/1604 store, which is the size of three football fields (everything's bigger in Texas), so anytime I don't have to take that hike, I make use of the opportunity.
Anyway, I don't know why I found it amusing to have toilet paper delivered to my house, but I did. It seemed like such a crazy thing to send through whatever delivery service they use that I couldn't stop laughing about knowing that some poor sod just dropped off toilet paper at my front door.
