Back to School Shopping Deals!

You can save HUGE on back to school shopping if you know how to do it right.

Right now Target has a great promotion going on, you can get $10 off your $40 purchase when you buy online and pick up in store. This could be a great chance to save on back to school shopping necessities. Even better, what you need will be waiting for you!

Some of the best back to school prices I saw were

2 count packs of pointed scissors for a buck

an 8-pack of washable markers for a dollar

3-packs of Sharpie highlighters for two bucks

They also have great deals like $.50 poly folders (these hold up way better than paper).

Staples actually has a 110% price match guarantee going on right now. If you find a lower price on an identical item, they won't just match it, they'll beat it by 10%

They offer printable coupons and easy rebates. Right now you can get a ream of paper for $2 with a coupon and easy rebate. You can also get a 5-pack of Papermate Sharpwriter pencils for free after rebate. The rebates really are easy, I always do them on my phone in the car right after I buy so I don't forget and they mail me a check.
