Charlie spotted this printer on clearance at Staples. I hope that no one reading this gets mad at Staples because they just bought the same item last week and paid $9,999.99 for it.

Reader O’Doyle spotted this amazing deal at the Fresh Market. Be sure to come back after the sale so you can save 22 cents off the sale price.
