Back-to-school sales are starting, and if you’ve got a long list of things to buy for your kids, start buying now! We’ll usually have a month or so of great sales, but typically it will just be a few items a week that are on sale, so if you want to get the lowest prices, plan to buy a few items each week based on what’s on sale. If you can plan a little, you’ll definitely save money by doing that rather than going to WalMart at the last minute!
My kids aren’t school-age yet, but every year I keep thinking I’m going to stock up on crayons and whatnot, but I’m not motivated enough to get there soon enough for the “while-supplies-last” or Sunday only sales, so this year I might try to do some price-matching at WalMart. Does anyone have any experience with price-matching school supplies there, particularly store brand items?
Here’s a few deals that are going on this week: Staples has 8 ct. pencils for just a penny through the 15th (limit 2)! Bargain Briana has all the other deals there this week, including a scenario for how to use the $5 off $20 coupon that was in the ad today.
Any other school supply deals going on this week? Are there any big events with good deals coming up for for educators?
