How To Save On School Supplies

How to save on school supplies

Have you started (or finished) shopping for your kid’s school supplies yet this year? Here are a few tips that I’ve learned over the last few years, to help get rock bottom prices for most of our school supplies each year:

  • Gather together your child’s school supply lists. 
  • If you have items left over from last year (used or unused), see if those will work before purchasing new items. Some items can make it from year to year (especially things like more expensive cloth binders, calculators, etc.), and you may save yourself purchasing new by using what you already have on hand!
  • Print this free printable with the regular prices at Walmart so that you know what your baseline prices are before shopping. Walmart doesn’t typically drastically change back-to-school prices during the season with extra sales, so you just need to know what their basic prices are so that you don’t pay too much elsewhere.
  • Each week, look over and purchase the best deals at your local office supply stores. You can find the Staples ad HERE and the Office Depot/Office Max ad HERE. Each week, they’ll have several items on sale, including a few items DEEPLY discounted ($.25 or less.) For the most part, you want to pick up only the items that are the deeply discounted, not just things that are on sale for a few pennies off. (If you’re able, get these even if they’re not on your child’s list as they’re great to donate, or save for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.)
  • Check out the Dollar Tree. Sometimes the Dollar Tree has school supply items for much less than other stores, and it never hurts to see what you can find there. (My favorite Dollar Tree deal of all time is $1 school project boards!)
  • Also watch the drug stores back-to-school sales. This week at CVS you can get combination locks for $3, and binders, Crayola, and Expo markers are all on sale buy one get one 50% off. To see the deals at your drug stores, go HERE for CVS, HERE for Walgreens, and HERE for Rite Aid and click the “BTS” tab at the top of the list to see what’s on sale this week.
  • As you’re stocking up on the very best deals, check those items off your child’s list.
  • The week before school starts, look over their supply lists again, then look at the sales prices at the office supply stores again to see if the items you still need are on sale. 
TIP: go HERE on PPP and  you can type in any item that you’re looking for to compare the best prices at the drug stores, office supply stores, and your local grocery stores. You can always use this feature by typing in the item you need in the “Need a Deal” search box on the right hand side of the screen.)
  • Look at the basic prices at Walmart as well, and decide whether to make one more trip to the office supply stores or go ahead and purchase everything at Walmart. Before you go to have a very accurate list so that you don’t end up going back and forth multiple times to the store, and if possible leave your kiddos at home so then don’t beg encourage you to buy all those extra items they most likely can live without!
  • Be sure to stock up as many extra savings during the back-to-school sales as you can, because school supply prices will go up drastically in a few weeks. A pack of crayons that’s $.25 will easily cost $1-$2 when you need an extra box in January, so stockpile school supplies the same way that you would stockpile food that’s on sale. Right now we will see the very lowest prices of the year on school supplies, so this is definitely when you’ll want to stock up! 


Note: If you have older children (especially high schoolers), you may want to just start them out the first few days with a basic set of pens, pencils and a few notebooks, and then wait until the first week of school to buy many of the supplies as they won’t get lists until they’ve gone to class for a few days. BUT, be sure to purchase the deeply discounted items as there on sale in the week’s 



What other suggestions do you have for saving the most on school supplies? I’d love to hear your tips – leave a comment to share!
