This is one of my favorite times of the year – it’s time to save some money on school supplies. I love pens, notebooks, planners, and all that jazz, so I really get excited when I start seeing deals on the front page of the office supply stores. This year, I’ll be in grad school, my daughter will be a senior, and I’ll have a 3rd grader. Gah.
Even if you don’t have kids in school, this is a great time to stock up for a home office, church, daycare, nursing home, or any other place where lots of craft items would be appreciated. Glue is good everywhere! Not glitter, though. We hates the glitter.
So, here’s what’s on my list this week, as well as the things I think you can skip for now. The slime-making craze shows no signs of going away, so I would expect to see glue be a hot commodity for the rest of the summer.
Crayola Markers and Pencils – $.97, limit 30
– Nothing covers quite like Crayola. I don’t subscribe to buying everything name-brand, but this is a decent price and one I’m going to take advantage of this week. Even though it might not be on the list, it still ends up being needed every.single.year.
Staples Standard 1″ Binder – $1.92
– I use binders to keep up with paperwork (hello IEP nonsense) as well as for school.
Staples Brand Composition Books – $.50
– These can get a little hard to find later in the year, so buy them now. This is a historically low price.
Glue and Crayola Crayons are both $.50 each but I think they’ll get cheaper. After all, this is the first week the deals are popping up so there’s no need to go nuts.
As always, I thank you for reading and sharing with your friends.
