Chapters Canada: Up To $40 Off Fine Writing Instruments

Get up to $40 off fine writing instruments at Chapters. These make very nice gifts too!

I remember being in grade 5 and practicing my penmanship for hours so I could be rewarded with a coveted pen instead of the crappy pencil I had to use. The day I finally did it is actually burned into my memory, which means I must have found it pretty special. Unfortunately, they don’t teach penmanship in schools anymore and in fact, when the grade 1 teacher told me my son’s writing was in other words, awful, I asked if it really mattered anymore. But, while it isn’t really part of the curriculum anymore, I think writing is an important skill that we shouldn’t lose. There is just a mystique behind hand-writing a letter or writing in a journal. Just as I love to have a beautiful glass for my red wine, I love having a beautiful pen for writing. I’m sure I’m not alone.

Chapters Canada: 41% Off Journals & Fun Writing Accessories

Chapters Canada: 41% Off Journals & Fun Writing Accessories

Purchase a journal and a fun writing accessory, and you’ll get 40% off of both at Chapters.

I love to journal and write about myself, but sometimes it gets boring. These journals from Chapters actually make it so much more fun. They have interesting writing prompts, lists and drawings, so you aren’t just putting your boring old thoughts into a plain lined paper journal. To make it even more fun, they have some really cool pens and pencils to do your writing and drawing with. This would make a fantastic gift idea!

I’ve heard about this My Quotable Kid book, which would make a perfect gift for a new parent. So many times my kids say something hilarious and innocent, and I wish I had written it down. To go along with it, I’d add these Tutti Frutti gel pens. The book is already 24% off, but at checkout you’ll only pay $8.64 (was $19.95) for the book and $5.70 (was $9.50) for the pens.

This sale really excites me; I want one of everything. As a writer with a creative family, I think I’m going to be getting some Christmas gifts during this sale.

Shipping is free when you spend over $25.

Lulu Canada Coupon Code: 40% Off Book Printing

Print your book for yourself, your friends or a bookstore for 40% less with this coupon code.

Click here to get your book published @ Lulu.com now

  • Coupon Code: NEWPODS40
  • Discount: 40% off Print on Demand
  • Expiry: 16th August 2013

If you’ve been following my career here (and I know you all have, right?), then you have seen me talk about being a writer. I even wrote an article (my most popular article yet) on how to publish your book for free or cheap. In that article, there was a comment that mentioned Lulu, which is a great option to print copies of your book.

It’s an even greater option when you use this 40% off coupon. You can bang out books for less than $2.50 each, and there are no minimums. You don’t need to buy 1000 books to get the discount. You can get it on one book if you just want a copy for yourself.

While you’re at it, they now (maybe it’s been a while, not sure) offer eBook publishing to Amazon, B&N and iBooks as well as on Lulu.com.

Shipping is fairly expensive because you’re shipping heavy books, but it’s not any more expensive than anywhere else. As usual, it depends on what you get and where you are.
