I'm actually doing it!

So I got a package in the mail today and I thought the situation was funny so I took pictures with the intent to blog about it, (note: I do this with a lot of stuff) so this time I decided I'd actually blog about it!
So here it is!!! looks pretty big right? I wonder what could be inside!
Still a little ambiguous as to what is in there, let's remove those packing bubbles.
...and these advertisements
What's that?
Oh! It's a box of paper clips!
So now you're probably wondering why I ordered a box of 100 paper clips from Staples, Huh? I was gonna say, "to make a long story short" but I don't want to! I'm gonna tell you the whole story! Staples has a printer (HP OfficeJet 8000) that's normally $149.99 but for a limited time only you can get an instant 75 dollars off. That brings your total to $74.99, you can buy $25 off $75 coupons online (e-junkies... google it) so I had to throw something cheap onto the order to bump me over the $75 line so I could apply the coupon and bring the order down to approximately $50. Next I send an old junky printer to HP and they send me a $50 check through their trade in program. What does that equal? A free printer! I love internet deals. I guess the printer was backordered for a day so it should be getting here tomorrow. I love how they decided to ship the paperclips a day early though.
