School Supplies

Just a friendly reminder to be on the look out for special sales on school supplies.


Last year, I picked up crayola crayons for 25 cents each, packs of pencils for a penny each, sheets of paper for less than two dimes, folders and notebooks were deeply discounted as well. In addition to school supplies, Kleenex, Ziplock bags, and peanut butter were also deeply discounted. In our household, sheets of paper are made into books and our boys make their own comics. The sales weren't all at on time, but the items would be the weekly special to entice the parents into the store to buy all of their school supplies from them. Use this sales gimmick to your advantage, and if possible donate to a worthy cause. We usually spent $20.00 on crayons when they go on sale, and bring the loot to the daycare.

There will be deals this year, so stay vigilant and save some money.

Keep Right On Prepping - K


  1. I don't know about your state, but in Florida and Georgia we have tax free weekends on all clothes, and school supplies. So one weekend Senior and I shop in Fl, then the next will cross the border to take advantage of GA's. We stock up to during those weekends..helps a bunch

  2. The tax here is pretty low, plus I'd rather pay the tax than deal with the rude crowds. It seems that I usually get ticked off when people start acting like they forgot their manners and common sense.

  3. Great idea! We can help local schools even though our kids are on their own. Thanks, K!
