Gavin’s not in school (he’s only 18 months old). And I don’t have to buy supplies for his daycare. Nope, I’m not a teacher either.
But I still LOVE Back to School shopping!
Back to School shopping seasons brings deep discounts on not only school supplies, but also craft supplies as well! For example, this week Toys R Us and Babies R Us are having a BOGO (buy one get one) sale on all Crayola products! A few weeks ago I was able to snag a 6-pack of Elmer’s glue sticks for $0.99 at Target.
If you have a young child, Back to School season is the best time to stock up on supplies for craft projects with the kids. Target also seems to always have great deals on school supplies and craft supplies on their discount shelves right as you enter the store. This week I found dry erase writing tablets, flash cards, craft pom poms and pipe cleaners, dry erase markers and more – everything was priced at $1.00!
But be careful when shopping the Back to School supplies shelves. I found some products were more expensive in bulk packages. For instance, those same Elmer’s glue sticks, in a 30-pack box cost $8.99. If I bought five packages of the 6-packs, which cost $1, I’d get my 30 glue sticks for $5! So, buyer beware. Deals are there to be had, but be sure to review the prices before making a purchase.
And just for fun, here’s one of my favorite Back to School commercials, brought to you by Staples!
