I have always thought that if I just went to Walmart to do my back to school supply shopping that overall my cost would be lowest. This year blew that theory out of the water! I have been to Office Depot, Office Max, Target and Walmart shopping for deals this year. Target beat Walmart on 1 inch binders, Crayola crayons, and folders. Both stores have composition notebooks for a mere $0.25, what a steal!
Office Max is best for folders at only a penny each! And 10 pencils for $0.15. (this week only)
Last week Office Depot had FREE hand sanitizer, staplers, file storage boxes, and expo pens – after rebates.
Overall, I’ve learned that picking and choosing your items to maximize your savings will give the best bottom line. Of course, that assumes your time is free…..
