I found large sized pencil boxes at Walmart for $.50. They had blue, pink, red and purple!

I picked up an 8Ct Washable LARGE Crayons at Rite Aid today – they were BOGO, $3.79, so $1.90 ea. Also, they had 8 ct Washable Markers at Walgreens for $2, with a $2 register reward – so FREE! :) I was able to use the $2 RR to get the .59 glue sticks!

A.D. August 1, 2011 at 4:21 PM

Aren’t the markers free after RR this week at Wags? :/

Amanda August 1, 2011 at 6:43 PM

When you say ”with card” for the Walgreens sales, what card do you mean?

Charlene August 1, 2011 at 6:49 PM

Ignore that. It is for people in the test markets for Walgreens.

Elizabeth August 1, 2011 at 6:54 PM

Charlene, this is a fantastic compilation. There are so many sales going on, it’s hard to cross-reference and compare apples with apples, but this makes it easier. Thank you for doing the hard work for me.

Kerri August 2, 2011 at 12:42 AM

I just wanted 2 say thanks! I’ve only recently (and out of desperation and chance) found ur site. I’ve recently been laid off and have had many sleepless nights with back to school supplies (and food of course) being top contenders for cause. Really, thanks again for sharing! U rock! :)

Melissa August 2, 2011 at 5:45 AM

I agree with Elizabeth! Thanks so much for organizing in this manner. It really helps to make sense of everything & to find what I need quickly. You are awesome!

Dealmom August 2, 2011 at 9:27 AM

Christine August 2, 2011 at 12:08 PM

Sadly the $0.10 composition books seem to be a regional deal. Went Sunday am and they looked at me like I had 2 heads!
