Here is the funny: We got a letter in the mail about pre-purchasing all of miss Sarah’s items from the school. It even comes in a commemorative box that would be great to save her important papers of the year in! the kicker? It cost $22 !!!
I KNOW I can do better than that! Just look at what I got last year at Walgreen’s:
-Legal pads – I like the smaller ones to keep in my purse for the ever occurring ideas. $.29
-10 pack Mechanical Pencils @ $.39
-Index Cards (100 plain or 70 color)@ $.39
-Pencil Sharpeners @ $.29 SAME COUPON as Rulers @ $.29***you can get SIX OF EACH
at the sale price!
-Mini Hi lighters @ $.09
-Crayons and colored pencils for $.49 a box
-Erasers just $.49 in a two pack
-Wood Rulers $.09
-2 pocket folders $.09
More great places to watch are Walmart, Target and Staples. Hands down they beat the other office supply stores last year for school supplies – just keep an eye on their weekly ads!
If you haven’t gotten the school supply list for your munchkin yet – look for last year’s list -they hardly change.
Keep in mind it’s also the time for school lunch type snacks: the sales will be out for those juice boxes, bagged chips, puddings, etc. It’s a great time to stock up!
