Time to go shopping for cheap rocket supplies. W-mart stores seem to be setting out student supplies for back-to-school season, but they haven't advertised much yet. That means there is still a pretty good selection.

Elmer's glue 4 fluid ounce bottles 25 cents each, at least at my local W-mart. Higher price than last year's 17 cents but still not bad. Great way to prep for rocketry building classes. (Off-name brand also available slightly cheaper.)

Packages of note cards, 44 cents, handy-sized cardstock good for laminating fins, reinforcing layers, throw-away surface for mixing epoxy, etc.

Coil-bound 70 page notebooks for 15 cents, good for sketching, doodling, jotting down design ideas, etc.

Office supplies: scotch tape, pens, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, highlighters, sharpies, copy paper, etc

Small drafting compasses

Lots of stuff and a good time to buy at significant discount!
Anybody else want to point out some other bargains?
