School will be starting soon in the Philippines and part of what we wanted to do was help the
children in need with basic school supplies. After asking around and doing some research it turns
out the Divisoria is the cheapest place to go and buy wholesale. The only downside to the Divisoria
is the location is in metro Manila, which is the most densely populated city in the world. The most
recent census list the population density at 111,576 people per square mile!

We were able to get to the Divisoria riding three jeepney about 20 miles at a cost of 43pesos
($1.04) per person. On the way back we would not be able to travel by jeepney because of all the
boxes we would have.
We left about 7:30am and arrived around 10:00am. There are so many stalls and about anything
you can imagine they have there. We spent several hours trying to find the best deals on school
supplies.

3,100p ($75.61) composition notebooks 400 notebooks         
1,550p ($37.80) spiral notebooks 200 notebooks
