Please recommend the best notebooks (lined/graph, margins, bound on the side, 8.5" x 11") you've used that DON'T have random spots and things on the pages.

I hate, hate, hate
it when paper has spots on it. I'm talking about the random black marks/paper weirdness that look like you could erase, but can't. Currently, I'm using two Five Star notebooks (one college-ruled, one graph paper) and they, especially the college-ruled one, have spots EVERYWHERE. Like on every page. It drives me nuts. My composition book is fine, but last quarter I bought two from the dollar store and it was like the pages were dalmatians (hence, no more dollar-store notebooks).
I know there has already been a recommend-your-favorite-notebook question here
, but most of those recommendations weren't for school and weren't with respect to spotty paper. Please leave your recommendations in terms of what people use for school (bound on the side, college-ruled or graph paper, 8.5" x 11"). As much as I know everyone loves Moleskines, it's really unfeasible for me to buy fifteen of them a year.
Bonus point: if it is a non-spotty graph-paper bound-on-the-side notebook with margins
I will love you forever.
