4 Comments on Find Budget School Supply Deals This Week 8/5-11

  1. Thank you Mary. I bought my spiral notebooks at Big Lots this year, with the $10 off $50 coupon a few weeks back, thanks to your summer school deals posts. Today I ordered $35 from Walmart: 10 (max allowed) Crazy Art Colored Pencils, 10 (max allowed) Crazy Art Crayons, 5 (max allowed) thin Crazy Art markers, 5 (max allowed) regular Crazy Art markers, plus three items for my grandchildren for the free shipping. I bought most of the crayon stock in Walmart yesterday and it is nice to add both crayons and colored pencils to the 10 – 14 boxes. The glue sticks and spiral notebooks were only available for store pickup. I agree with you, it is great to receive your items delivered for a fair price and sometimes the per item price makes it worthwhile to pay shipping on bulk orders.

    Thank you for organizing these deals for your readers. May God be glorified through your service.

    • Thank you Kathleen for your kind words of encouragement! I’m so glad you were able to get those deals! YAY! It’s just a toss up between convenience, our busy lives and cost.
