3 Days and Counting
a.k.a School Supply Shopping Plan
Week of 8/7/11

Wow, I am just 3 days from the end of my school supply donation challenge.  If you want details, see here.  To date I've collected 170 school supply items for just $71.95.  That leaves me with $28.05 and three days to shop this week's sales to see just how many school supplies I can drop off to Hopelink on Friday.  Here's where I plan to spend the money:

Fred Meyer
  • Filler Paper 150-sheet 2 for $0.96 (Limit 6)
  • Spiral Notebooks 70-sheet 10 for $1 (Limit 10)
  • 2-pocket folders 12 for $0.96 (Limit 12)
  • Filler Paper 280-sheets $0.99 each
  • Zebra pens 6-pack FREE (after Easy Rebate)
  • 2-pocket folders $0.01 each (thru Wednesday, Limit 10)
  • Sharpie 2-packs $0.25 each (Limit 2)
  • Staples cap eraser 12-packs $0.10 each (Limit 2)
  • Hammermill Copy Paper reams $0.50 each (after Easy Rebate)

  • Sharpie 5-pack $1 each (Limit 3)
  • Up & Up eraser 2-packs $0.20 each

  • RoseArt glue stick 2-packs $0.20 each
  • Up & Up kid scissors 2-packs $0.90 each
  • RoseArt Thin Markers 10-packs $0.50 each
  • 5-Star 1-subject Mead spiral notebooks $1.00 each (plus I have a coupon for $1 off of 2)
  • Bic Shimmers mechanical pencil 8-packs $0.90 each (I have a coupon for $1 off of 2 these, too)
  • Up & Up pencil 24-packs $0.90 each
  • Wood rulers $0.50 each
Basically, I plan to shop at all the stores except Target, add up what I've spent, and then spend the remainder of my money at Target.  Then, I'll post a final recap of what I gathered before dropping it off on Friday.  Remember, if you've been collecting supplies, too, and would like me to take them down for you, you need to let me know by Wednesday.  Happy shopping!
