Here is your round up of all the back to school deals running through Saturday 8/07.  The list is getting longer and longer each week! 

Lots of you are asking for a Back to School “Buy Price list”.  Because this season of sales is only about 4 weeks long once a year, knowing the lowest prices we will see for most items is very difficult.  I would recommend instead looking over last weeks round up list and this list and you should have a good idea of what prices are going to be for items on your list.

      The Avery Durable View binder is only $2 if you buy 4 of them. Otherwise, it's regular price. I found that out the hard way. They have this in little print beside the giant $2. Very tricky!!

    • Amy

      Target has two pocket folders with or without prongs for 10 cents each – no limit!

    • Sissymyst

      Walgreen also has 8 ct low odor dry erase markers chisel or fine tip for $3.99 on sale this week…great deal for teachers! They are $7.98 at Wal-Mart per pack, so this was a steal! I actually picked mine up at Wal-Mart and had them price match Walgreen's ad.

    • Crstnashppd

      Big Lots had 1 subject Mead spiral notebooks for 10 cents. And Target had composition books for 25 cents, and they are always hard to find once school officially starts, and tend to run at close to $2 once the 'supply season' is over.

    • Wendy Gray

      call me a FOOL….i still have to get a backpack. and i let all the great deals last week go right by me. :(( any other ideas about a CHEAP but CUTE and STURDY backpack. thanks guys! yall are the BOMB!

      • Sharlene

        Children's place has them for $12. They are cute and last forever. My son has had the some one since pre-k, and he is going into third grade. It is still in great condition! Hope that is helpful.

      • Dawnchubb

        Walmart had them for .25 I am a kindergarten teacher and we prefer the 8 pack.

    • Elainda

      Does anyone have a suggestion for composition books?
      Thanks Much!!

      • Walmart has then for .25, and Target had them for .25 last week – didn't see them when I was in there today though (but I wasn't looking either)

        • Lorrose57

          finally got the composition books at our Walmart today and they are still .25… the lady there told me that they sell out as soon as they get them…. I got some at Staples for .50 because I did not know if I would find them at Wally World before school started…

    • Nannette77

      This list is amazing! I just agreed to help a friend find deals on back to school supplies (she does not have a computer or much money to spend on anything). This list has saved me so much time and will be a great help for my friend!

    • Becky Lee

      How are the markers and crayola crayons free at Walgreens? I didn't know what deal you needed to get them free. I went to WG to get pencils, and they did not give me the $0.9 deal.
      The Dollar Tree has round-tip and sharp-tip scissors in two packs, making them $0.50 a peice. I've not found a better price than that.

      • Nickie

        the crayola markers cost $3 and then there is a mail in $3 rebate.

      • Tracie

        If you show them your walgreens sale paper they have to honor the .09 cents pencils.

    • Tiffanycholmes

      I need to find the best deals on hand sanitizer, tissues and wipes (I assume baby wipes). Any suggestions?

      • Wendy Gray

        hand sanitizer is $1 at dollar tree. no exactly sure about the other products. tissues are on sale at CVS, i think for B1G1. good luck! im sure someone else knows more info than me, im at work and can't look it up for you.

        • Tiffanycholmes

          Thank you so much!

      • 3monkeysmom

        That could also mean Clorox wipes…I had to buy some of those :-)

        • Tiffanycholmes

          Ahh! I hadn't even thought about Clorox wipes! Glad I didn't just walk in with loads of baby wipes! :)

          • 3monkeysmom

            Buy them some of those ArmorAll wipes for the car….and maybe they'll be more specific about what type of wipes they want!! ;-)

    • Patricia

      I went to OfficeMax today in Asheville and couldn't find the Schoolio 2pocket folders for 1cent each, so I asked and they said that they are not aware of that being on sale that might be an on-line special only!!!! The only ones they had were 25 cents each.

    • Crstnashppd

      Who has the lowest price on filler paper? I seem to remember finding them for maybe 25c last year, but they were 75c at Target today. Anyone found any packs for less than 75c?

      • Anynomous

        Office Max has 100 sheets for .20. Limit of 6.

    • Leslie

      Walgreens also has the Fiskars Scissors for .79 cent. Coupon is in the ad for this week. The casheir did not scan the coupons for a lot of the items that I had, ex. .09 pencils, but I looked at my reciept when I got to the car and took items back in the store and they credited me back for what I was over charged. It was only $3.00, but I felt like it was worth it.

    • Alison V.

      If you don't need the school supplies that are super cheap or free, consider donating them to United Way for their stuff the bus campaign. Check with your local agency to see if they are doing this! Ours in Chattanooga is, so we are going to collect school supplies in lieu of gifts at my son's bday party in October.

    • Meebababe

      Walgreens had Fiskar 5 in scissors for 79 cents if you use the in ad coupon.

    • mkmama
