Here are the best prices for office and school supplies this week of July 15 through July 21, 2018.  Summer is the best time to shop.  Don’t wait until September to get the majority of your items.  There will be clearances, but the supplies will be greatly diminished.  And the rest of the items will bounce back to full price.

Here are the best prices for office and school supplies for July 15-July 21:


Backpacks, $5
Pencil Sharpeners, 20 ct, $1 (This is the best deal on sharpeners.  It’s just a little difficult to find available stock in all the stores.  You can always have a chat with the manager!)


Most of their items are hygiene supplies (Check their entire list HERE) they do offer a number of school and office supplies.  Scroll down the list to the middle of the page to find the “Office Supplies” listing.  They have scissors, post-it notes and more – all with Free Shipping.

One of the items is short pre-sharpened “GOLF” pencils.  The size is about 1/2 that of an actual pencil.  At less than 3 cents, they are a good deal if you are purchasing in BULK.  They have a case of 4,320 golf pencils for a total of $116.34 with free shipping.  That comes to 2.6 cents per pencil.

4 Comments on Best Prices for Office and School Supplies This Week

  1. Just an FYI…saw a post where someone tested the Dollar Tree backpacks…they only lasted a few weeks with light use before seams started coming apart. Blessings!

    • That is not a national rule. We can choose any backpack here. Plus many purchase them to donate to private groups, use them for shelters or adult needs, or send overseas.

  2. I will sew down both sides of the cheap backpacks on the outside with hopes they won’t fall apart. Maybe use some fabric glue? Any suggestions because I have purchased a lot of them so they wouldn’t have to carry their shoebox.
