Walgreens had 12 packs of 3" x 3" Highland brand Post-it notes on sale for $3.99. They were packs of assorted pastels: pink, yellow, blue and green (I think). That was the best deal I have been able to find.
I hope this helps!
The Walmart here in south Mississippi still has the large composition books for 25¢.
I agree about the mini books at Walgreens, I don't like them as much. The paper is a gray/blue and is thinner. I bought 6 of them with the help of my three year old daughter yesterday, but I think I'll use the Dollar General and Big Lots ones for the rest of the ones I'm doing. I also really like the ones that Target sells in a two pack for 99¢. They are more of a true mini version of the larger ones.
I plan on selling my mini ones for $3, without a pen. I'll try to post pictures of what they look like. I hope they sell!
