Good Morning to Everyone out there! I hope you still remember who I am but I have been enjoying some much needed time off from life. The coming Sundays will be dedicated all the teachers out there looking for "Smokin'" deals for back to school. I myself and a shopaholic and love a good deal when I see one. This is the start to the season so happy reading and happy shopping!
Target has some good deals....
50 cents for 2-pocket poly portfolio
75 cents for 1-subject poly notebooks
99 cents for 10-count markers or 12-count colored pencils (Crayola brand)
$4 for 12-ct dry erase crayons
$1 for 2pk Sharpie markers or pocket highlighters (LOOK AT STAPLES DEAL!)
$10 Sterlite 3-drawer white rolling storage cart
Out of all the sales at Target, these are NOT the best deals but they will only get better. The Sterlite 3-drawer cart is a good deal especially if you are considering organizing your classroom more.
The next store on my list is Staples....
The next three deals are 1 cent each BUT limit 2. (That just means more visits and store hopping...LOL!)
RoseArt Crayons 24-pk
Staples washable white school glue 4 oz.
BIC Round Stic ballpoint pens, black, 8 pk.
5pk/ $1 Sharpie pens
25 cents for Paper Mate Sharpwriter mechanical pencils 5pk
25 cents Staples 8.5x11 multipurpose paper (Limit 2, rebate required so you pay 6.99 but get 6.74 back)
50 cents pink eraser 3 pack
$1 4pk Staples glue sticks (if you are desperate these may be ok, but I would hold out for a Elmers deal)
Out of all these deals, the Sharpies are good. The multipurpose paper is great if you are willing to front the money and wait for the easy rebate. They are really easy to submit online so you do not have to mail it in and pay for postage. Also Staples has brought back their "Back to School" savings pass. The kicker is that it costs you $10 so you can save 15% all season long on back to school items. The 15% pass only lasts til 9/15/12. (Opinions are welcome to this but I see it as a waste of money). In their ad, they have a $5 off coupon a $30 or more purchase.
Next up is Office Max...
10 FREE 2-pocket folders with a $5 minimum purchase (before tax)
25 cents for 4pk Office Max glue sticks (GOOD DEAL!!! Limit 3 otherwise you pay $2 for more than that)
50 cents for Composition notebooks (Limit 5)
If you pick up one of their ads, you will find additional coupons for some pretty good deals.
$1 for 12pk Black Sharpie markers
$1 Paper Mate Mechanical pencils 2pk
(Just remember to get a coupon!)
Office Max also has a coupon in their ad this week that is $5 off your purchase of $25 or more. This is better than Staples.
Office depot has some 100% back in rewards deals but those are on their regular priced items listed in their ad. Not sure this is a great deal but if you rely heavily on Office Depot rewards then take a look at their Office Depot website.
I tried to go through all of the ads that are put out weekly, in newspaper and online and these were the deals I thought were great. This is just the beginning so I can guarantee that deals will get better in the next few weeks. Stay tuned! Add deals that you find and above all, HAPPY SHOPPING!!!
Thanks for reading!
