Penny has once again helped me compile a long list of sales.  This week might be one of the last to get cheap school supplies!  Classes have already begun in areas around the country.  VERY SOON the stores will start selling everything at full price, which is double or triple the deals now.  Shop quickly!  I would recommend running out this week and purchase what you need NOW for your family, and for donations.  Some would be great for Operation Christmas Child, some for family shelters, Ronald McDonald House, and even your local schools!  It’s easy to share when you pick up such cheap school supplies!
