Supplies Sales Round-up
Week of 7/10/11

Ok, if you've decided to help me gather school supply donations, THANK YOU!!!  I am so grateful to have your help.  Here are the best deals I found this week:


Staples is my number one, go-to place for school supply deals.  Every week they have a set of 1-cent, 25-cents, and $1 deals that are on supplies almost every kid needs.  (For most of these deals, you can only buy 2 of each item.) This week, here's what I got:

For all this, I spent just $17.54.  But it gets better-- the reams of paper were on a rebate special, so they are sending me a rebate check for $11.48, which means that these 18 items will actually have cost me just $6.06!  Not too shabby.  Here are the details. I got:
  • 2 reams of multipurpose paper for $5.99 each before rebate, $0.25 each after rebate
  • 2 plastic two-pocket folders for 25-cents each
  • 2 plastic pencil boxes for 25-cents each
  • 2 Wescott All-Purpose Scissors for $1 each (these are adult-size)
  • 2 Wescott "For Kids" 2-pack scissors for $1 each (that's 4 student-size scissors for $2 total)
  • 2 Bic "Student's Choice" mechanical pencil 5-packs for 25-cents each
  • 2 Staples brand school glue for 1-cent each
  • 2 Staples brand cap eraser 12-packs for 1-cent each
  • 2 Bic "Round Stic" ball-point pen 10-packs for 1-cent each

NOTE: Some the 1-cent deals are only good through Wednesday, the rest are good through Saturday.

Fred Meyer

Fred Meyer had some pretty good deals this week, too.  Here's what I got there:
  • 4 Crayola crayons 24-packs for 25-cents each
  • 3 Elmer's school glue bottles for 25-cents each.

Both of these deals were limited to 4 items each.  Why did I get only 3 glues?  Because I found a great online rebate that credits you 75-cents when you buy Elmers glue.  Therefore, all three glues were free, and I don't have to count them toward my personal $100 donation cap.  Info on this rebate here. That means my total cost at Fred Meyer's this week was only $1 for 7 items!

NOTE: I am showing totals pre-tax as sales tax rates vary by location.
