    • I read that Walgreens has colored pencils for 59c and markers $2 with a $2 RR.  Last week they had crayons $1 with a $1 RR that wasn't advertised, so I'm thinking that if you go into Walgreens you can score some great deals this week just like last week.

      • The Lunch Lady

        Wags does have the colored pencils for 59c….I used it as a filler item.  They do also have the Crayola Washable markers for $2 w/ $2 RR….an AWESOME deal!!!

        • Sezrab

          For a good time, roll the markers with the $2 w/ $2RR Goody metal barrettes.

      • Ann Bowes

        The crayons were advertised last week.  I got them.
        This week it is 8 pack Markers.
        Lots of other good deals.

    • Yvonne

      Composition Notebooks are $0.40 at the Walmart in GA.

    • Natashapretorius2002

      I think that I saw Toys R Us had 24 pk. Crayola Crayons for 4/ $1.00 and the composition books are .10 at Staples with a $5.00 purchase. (limit of three)

    • Carolyn

      Target has Roseart 24 pk crayons for 20 cents!

    • CarolinaCouponer

      I don't know if this has been posted yet or not, but at OfficeMax all of the Expo Dry Erase Markers are B2G2 FREE at $5.79 each 4 pk and there are $5 off any purchase of 3 packs of markers coupons on a tear pad on a marker display.  Ends up being $1.65 each 4 pk!  :oD

      Office Max has some of the best deals this week:  Crayons .01 cent, Rulers .01 cent (limit of 2, or double if you are a teacher ~ includes homeschoolers), Pencils, 10pk, .10cents. 

       THere is also a bonus coupon page (go to the Office Max site and sign up – although I think you can get these at the Customer Service desk).  You get 100 pk index cards, .10 cents, 100 page filler paper, .20 cents (all limit 5). 

      There were also some other good coupons.  I paid .38 cents for a bunch of stuff (I also have a teacher reward card, so was able to get double limit)
      Enjoy!!

    • Rebecca

      ALSO, Dollar Store has 1″ binders for, gee, $1 each.  Asked clerk if they always carry them, and he said yes.  So, no need to rush out and get them “on sale” this week at other places.  Yay!

    • Angelmj1019

      I know crayons has always been referred to as the better product, but my daughter and I tested out the crazy art crayons and markers and they are just as good is not better, have cooler colors, and are often cheaper at walmart. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    • JO

      My Office Max does not have the tear pad for the expo marlkers. If any one has extras, or would be willing to send me a few I would be so grateful.  email is  mcdon212 at bellsouth dot net THANKS

    • Also remember that the tax holiday is coming up this weekend in several states. I can't remember them all (Jenny had a post about this a few weeks ago). I know both Carolinas are this weekend so I'm waiting until Friday to do my BTS shopping. Why not save an extra 6-7% if you can? :)
