Tis the season for school clearance: I’ve gotten two tips about two separate King Soopers stores from readers this morning! First, from Kimi:
I was just at the KS on Hartsel Dr. In the seasonal aisle, they had lunch boxes marked down to $1.35, stainless steel thermoses for $1.35, Goldfish snack containers and sandwich containers for $0.30. There was various other lunch/school related things also marked down to 90% off. I also saw a stack of backpacks in the same section, but I couldn’t find a price to verify if they were 90% off, too. There was still a good selection left as of this morning.
And from Jenny:
I just got back from the Kings at Uintah Gardens, and in the seasonal isle (toward the back, past the Halloween stuff), they had a small spot (that I keep watching!!) of leftover school stuff for 90% off. I haven’t looked at any of the other Kings today to verify, but might want to mention to people to look for it.
There were TONS of backpacks! I couldn’t believe it! Is there a ministry that needs backpacks?? I know some organizations fill backpacks with school supplies, but I don’t know the details… They were mostly generic brand and most of them were black, but I did find a Disney princess one and snagged it–had been $17.99 and got it for $1.60. There were a handful of insulated lunchboxes, and I grabbed the CARS one and a Thermos-brand Star Wars one (each about $1). Inside the Star Wars one were great coupons that don’t expire for at least another year!!
I also grabbed a sports bottle (10 cents) and some tumbler cups (11 oz.–10 cents) for us, as well as some little 4×6 notebooks (20 cents) that I’ll put in my Operation Christmas Child bin!
Sweet! Thanks for the tips, ladies!
