Start Your School Supply Shopping For Next Year NOW!

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that the time to buy school supplies is usually AFTER school starts – when retailers are simply trying to get rid of the excess.

School starts here next Monday, the 20th, so of course we’ve had to have everything ready for the Orientation/bring in supplies day which is this Wednesday. However, we are now on a hunt for the “real deals” on school supplies to begin refilling the supply cabinet in my office. Here’s what we’ve done so far this week:

This week Office Depot has school rulers 1 cent each, plastic zippered pencil cases 1 cent each, 70 page 1 subject notebooks 1 cent each — pkg of 4 glue sticks for 50 cents, pkg of 2 black Expo write on/wipe off markers 50 cents each — limit of 3 of each item.  Check out the picture — I spent $3.33 for all of the above school supplies and SAVED $23.16.  Because we have 5 grandchildren in elementary school, the supply lists are never ending, so my husband is great about following after me with the same deals so we can get ahead for the grandchildrens’ needs for next year.

Last week Office Depot had 8 oz bottles of school glue for 1 cent and packs of 150 ct. wide rule paper for 25 cents — so of course we have a supply started with those as well.

The cashier told me that each week through September they’ll be featuring a number of different items in the 1 cent and 25 cent categories, so we’re checking each weekly flyer very carefully to get the best deals for NEXT YEAR!!

Also, right after school actually starts, check your other favorite stores – CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, etc and I’m sure you’ll find some really great deals as they clear their “school” shelves to make room for the fall holiday items.

Good luck on your “next year’s” school supply lists — let us know what kind of deals you are getting!

How To Save BIG Money On School Supplies!

You would think THIS is the time for big savings on school supplies! Of course every store out there has some sort of sale going on. According to the Winn Dixie sale flyer this week if you purchase one of their participating backpacks for $9.99, you will get a box of 24 crayons, a 10 pack pencils, 5 duo tang folders and a composition book free (a total of $9.67 in savings). This is really a good deal if you need backpacks, however if you got two of the BOGO backpacks at Walgreens last week, this might not help you. It seems that many of the stores have “something” that’s a good buy, but I’m thinking that if I have to run to 6 or 8 different stores to get the one or two deals that they have, I’m gonna be spending too much in gas!

Let me now tell you the secret that WE have done the past few years! When my quadruplet grandbabies (Denise’s quads) started pre-K – and Jacob, the big boy going into First grade, the lists of school supplies were pretty BIG! We said at that time – “this is a lot of stuff if you only have one child, but when there are 4 in the same class plus the first grader, this is a LOT of stuff to buy”!!!

Here’s what we did – of course we had to buy everything for that particular year, HOWEVER we also printed out the school supply lists for all the grades (pre-K through 6th grade). We got what sales we could for that first year, THEN after school actually started, the BIG BIG school supply sales started. Everywhere – WalMart, K-Mart, Walgreens, CVS the Navy Base Exchange – all the stores – simply wanted to get rid of the excess school supplies. WHOOHOOOO!! Did we ever get some GREAT deals for the kids for the NEXT year! We got crayons for 10 cents a pack, the duo tang folders for 8 cents each, packs of the ruled paper for 50 cents each, big bottles of hand sanitizers for 75 cents (reg $2.99/$3.99) and on and on — and the BIGGEST deal of all was when I ran into Office Depot for a few things and saw a cart FULL of the school pencil cases for ONE CENT EACH!!! Guess how many I bought —- enough for all the kids for every grade through 6th grade!!!

I have a closet in my office where we store all the supplies that we’ve bought at these “after school starts” sales, and a few weeks before school starts we dig out bags for each of the kids and start filling them with supplies from the closet according to what’s on the lists. Normally the only things we have to buy are the 3 boxes of kleenex per child, 2 rolls of paper towels per child and the 2 containers of clorox wipes per child. We can usually find those things on sale at some of the grocery store weekly sales, so we are able to keep the actual back to school spending down to a minimum.

Get a list of what your school will require for NEXT year for each of your children and beginning the end of August through the middle of September take perhaps a day or two to run into the stores you normally shop at (hit Walmart first!!) and take your list with you, and I can guarantee that you’ll be spending much less for next years’ school supplies.

Juiceman Juice Extractor Reg $130 Now $35 Shipped!

I have one of these Juiceman 1.1HP Juice Extractors with 2 Speeds & Citrus Juicer Attachment and I absolutely love it!  There is just nothing like fresh juice and you’ll find yourself using it to make all sorts of tasty concoctions from every type of fruit and vegetable like berries, pineapples, and carrots in addition to the usual oranges and apples.   We like ours a little “pulpy” because its a great source of fiber and nutrients, but this unit comes with a pulp container to easily separate it out for you and we love the extra wide mouth chute at the top because it takes very little prep work in advance.  The Juiceman retails for $129.99 but you can grab this refurbished version for just $34.99 with free shipping!
