      Thank you for compiling this list!!! I'm sharing it with my friends on Facebook! I always rave to them about your site!

    • jessc5

      Do you mean 8/14???

    • Beth

      Just an fyi – I went to Walgreen's today to buy the compostion notebooks that are 5/$1. They aren't the regular size ones the kids need. They are the tiny ones. The regular size ones are .49.

    • Caritob40

      I went to Walgreen's today and the cashier told me that there is no limit on the FOLDERS (.9 cents e/a), so I got 30 and it worked.

    • Jacqui

      Are these prices WITH coupons? If so, can you please add the links??

    • Dawncdp

      Just a note from a teacher–if you are getting the cheaper, paper folders, STOCK UP! Those things don't last long, especially with younger kids. If you see a plastic folder that's on sale, grab those quick! They last so much longer!

    • Benjamin

      Wags also has 29 cent rulers and 99 cent pencil pouches. :)

    • Chantel31

    • redteapot

      The Bic Mark IT pens were 8.99 for one at CVS yesterday. Just FYI for those who are wondering with the B1G1 deal.

    • redteapot

      Does anyone know where I can get a good deal on bottles of poster paint. Or even WHERE I can get them?

      • Deb

        Not sure where the best deal would be, but Michael's or Hobby Lobby should stock it. Good luck!

      • Beck
