$2.62 + tax – School Supplies Sales are here!

School supply sales are back! This week almost all major ads had them listed… Staples, Office Max, Target, Walmart… but not CVS, disappointingly… I am on a mission to get the Gryskie kids their school supplies while they are in Indiana (so they don’t have to ship anything back here) AND I still collect for the school supply drive we do every year to benefit the Sunshine Acres Orphanage in Mesa.

Staples and Office Max


Right now Staples has 1¢ 12/pk cap erasers (reg price $1.29, limit 2), 8/pk Bic pens (reg price $1.99, limit 2), and glue (reg price 75¢, limit 2). Fine print: with minimum $5 purchase. They also have 25¢ folders (reg price 99¢, limit 2), stickies (reg price $3.00, limit 2), BIC mechanical pencils (reg price $1.49, limit 2), slider pencil cases (reg price $1, limit 2) and ream of paper (paper is after Easy Rebate; reg price $5.99, limit 2 per household). In order to get the above the minimum I got the ream of paper since it was $5.99 before rebate. I usually get my ink free there after recycling old ink cartridges, so I know how the rebates work. They also have photo paper for $1 after rebate, but I have stocked up on that from them since it’s a normal rebate sale. I also splurged on glue sticks, they were 4/pk for $1 (reg price $1.50, limit 2) since 25¢ per stick isn’t that bad of a price. I am sure they will have some better sales in the upcoming weeks on those…

After Staples I went to Office Max to get their sales: 1¢ pocket folders (reg price 25¢, limit 5), pencil sharpeners (reg price 25¢, limit 5) and ream of paper (reg price $5.99, after MaxPerks rebate, limit 2). Fine print: minimum $5.00 purchase. Again, got the paper to get myself above $5. They also have a $5 off of $25 coupon in the ad that is valid for all regular, sale and clearance priced items.

BUT the gem of the day, was I remembered while I was at Office Max that they do price matching… I happened to have my Staples ad with me, so I got additional glue, pens and erasers (NO LIMIT! That may have just been the cashier…) from there. They didn’t have the 12/pk of cap erasers so the guy gave me the 25/pk ones for “double the price”. Yes, that’s 2¢ each.

I will let you know what else I stumble upon in the upcoming weeks… 🙂 Happy saving!
