      can these be purchased online?

      • Hannah Thomas

        No, the ad says in store only

    • Carmyn Bennett

      Is the sale today too?

    • Jessica Davis

      Do you just take the list into the store and “voila”?

    • Ashley

      I am always bummed that these sales are on Sunday. We go to church every Sunday morning, and by the time we get to the store afterwards, the great deals are gone, and they don’t restock. I totally understand that it is their right to post sales anytime they want, and its my choice to go to church. I’m just bummed because I can’t ever catch the fabulous deals they are so kind to offer!

      • Wendy

        I bought all of my deals later Sunday afternoon, and was able to get 3 of each deal without a problem.

      • Toni

        It appears that you recognize that there are some things that are worth more than $.
        Usually I don’t even bother to shop at stores like that. It’s not worth the waste of time and effort to go there and find everything gone.

      Thanks Jenny. I check your website atleast once a day. Financial problems started recently but since I have been following your couponing tips even before my problems started, it was a little easy to deal with these grocery bills in tough times than it would have been otherwise.
      I have always had this question with back to school supplies. At the end of the year, our teachers return a new pencil or two and a few crayons- new and used. Why dont the teachers return scissors and the stuff that they barely used like in my case colored pencil set of 24 (my kids tell me what they use or barely use all along the year)?
      They get their stock replenished in class every year when new students come in. Also anytime we supply in the new school year we clearly know that my kids only need of of what is listed.
      What do they do with all these extras- use it for their own kids? donate it?
      especially the scissors- I dont understand- How many scissors can a class have accumulated from previous students and the current students.

      I would like to hear from people regarding my concern above.

      Thanks for what you do.

      • elje

        i mean- half the quantity of what is listed

      • Heidi

        I’m a teacher and I can’t say what your children’s teachers do or don’t do, but I know that I and all of the teachers I know spend a great deal of our own money supplying what is needed in our classrooms- from books that the students need to read to paper to scissors. Not every child brings in their supplies at the beginning of the year, things get lost and broken and they just wear out. If you’d like your non perishable supplies back, ask the teacher- I’m sure she would give them to you. ????

        • elje

          Thank You for your response. My school and teachers’s – In the past When I have asked for the non perishables I had given but not used(leftovers)- the teachers have made a ton of excuses with a demeaning look. I struggle to provide for my kids, I am definitely not going to pay for others kids no matter what their problems might be. I am not there to solve others problems when I have my own problems to deal with. Now on the school supply drop off I only provide half the quantity of what is listed and still only half of the items I provided get used. So which means they are asking for parents to drop off 75% of what is really needed.
          Since you are a teacher I have a Q- Why dont the schools just stick to the parents provide and keep providing their own kids school supply as they need to get replenished. The ones who cannot afford the school will covers theirs- not others parents. No problem with that. And this community thing to promote community feeling ( the school supplies) at school- let me just say something – Kids this age do not care to maintain the community items but I have seen them take care of the items they call their own that they get from their home very responsibly. I have seen community supplies dont get the same care they would be getting if the kids called it their own. That is how it was in my school.

          When something from community supply is lost no kid takes responsibility because its easy for them to say – “I put it back in the bin but I dont know what happened later”. Its easy to play blame game which may become a habit if parents at home do not keep a check.

            Government schools operate almost totally by institutionalized thievery so it is no surprise that the items you are told to supply for your children end up being distributed to someone else. Who knows, maybe the teacher returns them to the store for cash back. Send used products whenever possible.

      • Angela L Weathers Thomas

        I’m a teacher and I send everything back with the students….used and unused!!!

      • Alison_V

        At our school, everything we sent in at the beginning of the year comes home at the end, no matter how used…excluding Kleenex and Clorox wipes of course.

      • elje

        Thank you for your responses. Its nice that your teachers give your stuff back to you used or unused at the end.
        I wish mine were like that.

    • Bea Taylor

      Does this start tom?

    • Ann Bowes

      I have retired from the school system as a parapro. I was always overwhelmed at what landed in the trash. I collected a lot of things from the trash over the years that I have used at my Sunday school and given to others. Crayon, glue, pencils, paper, scissors, folders, file folders and on and on. We live in a land of throw away and buy more. I cannot stand it.

      • elje

        Totally agree with “We live in a land of throw away and buy more”
        People don’t care of the burden we are causing on the planet. They also don’t care they are throwing away their money when that used item could still be used till its over.
        Green for the planet is green for your pockets too.

    • Grace

      These are great to stock up on for Christmas boxes at church! The kids over seas love all things like this! Consider donating to them if you’re not donating to the school.

    • T MAc

      There is a survey code that you can go on line and enter. They will send you a $10 off of $50 coupon. I have been cleaning up in there the last three weeks.

    • kelly raming

      So you can buy three of each of the 1 cent items after just one $5 purchase?
