Thrifty Finds: Back to School Edition

As Staples says, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” With that being said, why should school supply shopping had to be expensive and boring? There are so many back to school specials going on in which I am currently taking advantage of and I wanted to share a bunch of them with all of you! (& in-store) .10¢ Composition Notebooks

Staples is currently selling their composition notebooks for $1 each.  If you add $5 to your shopping cart whether online or in-store, the composition notebooks will be reduced to just .10¢ each! (limit 3 per customer)

I recently purchased Crayola colored pencils and markers for just $2 each during a random promotion they were having! Be sure to keep checking for the newest money-saving offers.

Office Depot “$1 Deals” (online & in-store)

Office Depot has made it easier than ever to shop all things back to school.  Not only does Office Depot have a “$1 Deal” section, but if you shop on, they have broken all supplies down by grade! Printable Coupons

This is just one of the many reasons I love Target.  Target is offering online coupons, available for print for use in store.  There are coupons for Crayola, Lunchables, Kraft String Cheese, and other great products to make school supply shopping and lunch making super easy.

Bed, Bath, & Beyond’s Campus & Beyond 

Bed, Bath, & Beyond has always been a go to store for all thrifty college finds. Their “Campus & Beyond” section is full of affordable offers for sleep, wash, organization, and other great dorm products.  If you visit a Bed, Bath, & Beyond in your area, don’t forget the coupons!’s “Back to School Value Bundles”
