There is no free lunch

“There is no free lunch”
 
Wise words that I really can’t attribute to any single individual, but they ring true. Especially in this age of the internet, we know that if something says: “Free” it really isn’t. You know this if you’ve ever found something free online only to find out that shipping and handling are more than the value of the item.
 
While there might not be any free lunch, there are some deep discounts that we CAN take advantage of. For instance: We have access to some pretty darn good deals with Dell! – Just click on the link to see their “Christmas in July” flyer. http://dyzz9obi78pm5.cloudfront.net/app/image/id/5785502c32131cb10b71ba2b/n/cal-lutheran-dellu-specials.pdf
And for you Mac users, the apple education store is a great way to get your educational discount on apple products: http://www.apple.com/us-hed/shop
