It’s that time of year again! Wait… it’s only July. Yes! It’s time to start thinking about Back-To-School already! School supplies are on crazy discounts right now at many of the major retailers. Although I don’t have school age kids, I am a teacher at heart and can’t resist a fresh pack of new markers…crayons..notebooks… you get the idea 🙂 (I’m also SUPER thrifty and love finding a good deal… you can read my post about other ways to save here and here).

One of my favorite bloggers is Collin over at Hip2Save. If you aren’t already following her, get on her email list. Yes, you will get daily emails full of amazing deals. Trust me, it’s the only email I religiously look forward to and read, every-single-day. I was able to score an amazing deal on several school supplies. I didn’t grab all the supplies in her bargain, but I did get some. Staples in Woodbury, MN has an AWESOME supply of all these items, so no worries about fighting to get them. The sale is on through July 23rd. Don’t miss out!
What did I get?
10 Notebooks (5 College/5 Wide Ruled). These were .17 each = $1.70 (limit 30)
2 Packs of Markers – .97 each = $1.94 (limit 30)
2 Packs of Crayons – .50 each = $1.00 (limit 30)
