You may be planning picnics and vacations, but now is the best time to shop for school deals! All of the stores are gearing up for fall and have begun sales for school supplies, college dorm items, uniforms, backpacks and more. Today I am going to list all the school supply bargains for the week of July 21st through July 27th. Some of the prices will continue through August and some are for this week ONLY. I prefer shopping online since it saves so much time, and I don’t have to travel in this heat! Many stores will have a “ship to store” option to save on shipping. That also saves you time as frequently these stores will position their sale items deliberately throughout their building forcing shoppers to walk all around (and maybe pick up more to purchase).
Shop for school deals this week:
Through August 3rd, Menards is having fantastic sales on school supplies. This is the best time to shop for school deals if you have a local Menards store. (I sadly, do not have a local store.) They have tons of items for 39 cents, 59 cents and 79 cents. PLUS notebooks and pens that are free with rebate.
Frankly, there are just too many items to list. You can check here online to view your local flyer.
OFFICE DEPOT/OFFICE MAX
Doorbuster! $0.10 Notebooks- While Supplies Last! Plus, Up To 80% Off Our Best Selling School Supplies! – limit 4 In-store – per household.
HOWEVER, Helen, one of our group members had this experience:
These stores have 70-page spiral notebooks available in 5 colors – green, red, blue, yellow and black – college or wide-ruled for $0.10 each. The ad says 4 per household/business. She ordered online and it allowed her to get four of each color in each style (college ruled, and wide-ruled) so she got 40 notebooks in total and chose free ship to store. Some will have success with this process. Many others have reported success in doing the same. However, she got a call from the store after ordering saying she could only order 12 per day. Everyone is having different experiences depending on their store or their state. It is definitely worth checking out if you need a lot!
