2014 back to school price list

Stores are about to be flooded with Back To School Deals, many have already started the sales.  To help you save the most, here’s a price list of what to expect for certain items.   I know for most of you the school lists haven’t even come out yet… but you can’t afford to wait on most of these items!  With prices 70-80% off, it really doesn’t hurt to guess on somethings and grab items when they are a great price rather than paying top dollar in the last week before school starts.

The best overall are always the 1¢ sales at Staples and Office Depot/Max. They usually have a limit, but you definitely want to stock up on all of them. Remember that you can also price match many name brand (not store brand) deals at Walmart or Target. This can many times be the better option as they have a larger supply.

Also, if you don’t need school supplies… PLEASE consider donating them!  These are a huge need in every school and it is a great way to help kids start off the year on the right foot.
