Where: Office Depot/Office Max
Keep your eye on flyers from Office Depot/Office Max because if you catch one at the right time, you will know when to go to one of their stores to buy up to three $0.01 school supplies. These “penny deals” can be glue, erasers, stickers, pencils, etc. You better hurry though because these deals are while supplies last. While if you go in to only buy these items you can only get up to three, the deal is back after you spend at least $5 on another item in the store.
Normally these markers are $2.50 for 10. During Target’s back-to-school discount, they are $1. No catch. No coupon needed. Buy as many as you want.
Five Star Notebooks
While there are laptops, phones, tablets, and many other forms of technology to take notes with, the notebook is still the classic way of taking notes, and Five Star Notebooks is the essential notebook brand to buy. The catch? You have to buy three of them. Still, it 45 cents cheaper to buy three Five Star notebooks at Costco than many retailers online.
TI-30X IIS Scientific Calculator
Real math requires a real calculator. Not just the basic calculator app on your phone. As long as you don’t need a calculator with graphing functionality (which costs at least a hundred dollars more) you can get this useful scientific calculator for $11 bucks. Seemingly at least $5 less than many online retailers.
Where: JC Penney
Backpacks to school is like The Avengers to awesomeness. Or at least your kids may think that. These superstar superheroes are the face of a JC Penney deal that’s worth saving the day for. The backpack along with a matching lunchbox is right now 62% off of the manufacturer’s suggested price. You can get another 3 dollars off if you use the coupon code 4SALE.
Need gel pens? Run (really, RUN) to Costco right now because this may be the best deal on gel pens you will find all year. For only $20 you get 100 gel pens, choosing between styles like metallic, neon, or glitter which has 70 different colors. It also has a stadium stand to keep them organized, and if you buy them in the store, you will be saving around $5 on shipping and handling. Are you running yet? You should at least read the rest of the blog before you leave.
