Random Misawa Trivia
What's significant about Japan having 100 Yen stores? Besides the fact that my children love Dollar Stores.....I had asked on the Misawa Home Educators list about an office supply store. Several wrote to tell me that there isn't an Office Supply store. The BX carries a few things but is often out of stock. The 100 Yen store carries a few things. In fact two told me of a time in the recent past when there was NO NOTEBOOK paper to be had in the area. I have been advised to bring what I have with me.....
BUT several have also told me that you can order from Office Depot online. Free shipping if your order is over $50. I thought that was a LOT, but I could save up and place a big order.
Today I ran to buy laminating "stuff", spring folders etc.....and THIS totaled $103.00.
I'm hearing priority will take 7 - 10 days, standard 2 - 4 weeks, and media months and months....
