Welcome!  Each week this summer I’ve been compiling a list of stores with the best Back to School Discount Deals on School Supplies.  Many deals are the same as last week and will continue through September 4 or so.   Big Lots still has 17 cent notebooks (so does KMart), the cheapest around!  5Below still has the best deal on pencil sharpeners if you can find them at 20 for $1.  I didn’t include Rite Aid or CVS this week since they aren’t offering any good sales. But I did add a new online store, Dollar Days, for you to check out!
