Sing it with me now “and Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again..”! Whether you are anxiously awaiting the first day or school or not, now is a great time to check out the back to school sales that are cropping up! Unfortunately I didn’t receive my newspaper today so I’m not 100% sure what all of the current deals are, but I do know that you can probably look up the latest sales at your local stores online on their websites or use your favorite search engine to search “2010 back to school sales”. Don’t know of anyone that needs school supplies? These type of items also work great for your office, Christmas stocking fillers, and to donate.
To give you a small idea of what is out there for sales right now here is what I picked up at Staples today:
2 Staples Hype Assorted Highlighters reg. 2.00 ea $0.25 ea
2 “Really Useful Box” reg. 1.00 $0.25
1 Staples Eraser and Grips set $2.00
1 Ticonderoga #2 Pencils $2.49 (*there is apparently a coupon in the ad for these this week so if you got your paper you can get them for only $1.00. I even grabbed and ad at the store and forgot to rip the Qs out.)
1 Scotch Invisible Tape 3 pack $2.00 (see * above)
1 Bic Roundstick Pens $0.01 (with $5.00 purchase)
My total after tax even without the available Q’s was only $8.03!
This week you can also take an advantage of Staple’s “free” backpacks. Buy any backpack and get the amount back in the form of a Staples gift card. We don’t need any backpacks but this is great for someone who does or someone who frequently shops at Staples and could get the backpack to donate!
