It's back! YES!  

 

A week late!  Sorry!

 

It's my favorite time of year, back to school sales time!  I know your kids must hate me, but I love buying new supplies (for myself...) 

 

I will post the sales I see at the major office stores each week, along with Target and Walgreens.  I do not post Wal-Mart as I can't really get their weekly ad but I'll post it if I can find it.  

Please note Office Depot and Office Max are now merging, so we are now less one store. :(

 

EDIT:  PLEASE NOTE:
Prices may vary across the country. Always double check with your local store for price variations and varying limits.


GO BRUINS!

You're welcome!

 

Also,  I take requests.  One year someone asked for the weekly deals on graphing calculators.  If there is anything you are looking for please, let me know.

 

Don't have kids or your little ones are past the age of constant school supplies shopping?  Consider dropping by your local office store and pick up a supplies list for a local school and take advantage of the deals to help a child this school year. :)

Yay! So glad this thread is up again!
The 25 cent Sharpie marker deal was IMO the best deal this week. My Office Max included ALL the Sharpies, so I got several Paint pen versions, as well as the two ended (the ones with fine & medium tipped ends) for 25 cents each! There is a 10 per household limit, but still, an AWESOME deal!

Am I missing deals on BIC pencils? I need the largest , mega, jumbo pack of them for the best price and multiple quantities 😳 seriously, I think my kids eat lead! I usually score at Walgreens but haven't seen anything yet!

I can always be used as a "bad example" :P

So far the best price I've seen is on Walmart.com.  Pack of 100 for 1.00.  I think I can do better!  I remember picking them up last year for less than 50 cents a package.

Your daughter is right... I use the colored ones myself and they are invaluable! :)

So I stopped and thought about it, and I think it would work for me too.  I'd totally use color association with what I was trying to memorize.

 

I.e. certain fact I know was on a blue flash card. Ok, blue was for all water related facts.. OH YEAH! got it!


GO BRUINS!

Am I missing deals on BIC pencils? I need the largest , mega, jumbo pack of them for the best price and multiple quantities seriously, I think my kids eat lead! I usually score at Walgreens but haven't seen anything yet!

Keep an eye on the Staples ad.  I think I remember them having them on sale last year.

I'd love to know when ruled, colored note cards are on sale. DD23 swears by them ... She can go thru hundreds in a semester. Plain white ones aren't as effective she claims. Thanks Freesia!

They have them on sale this week at Target for .49 as I bought some for my dd.  We both live in NC. :gdclap:


Did Staples do away with their penny sales? I haven't seen any this year...

It feels like it. They've had plenty of 12 cents, 15 cents, 17 cents and other random amounts sales though, which drives me nuts typing up the prices.

Thanks!  I will head over there this week as body pillows are on sale this week too!

 

I think you'll see better back to school deals in August.
