Shannon’s Staples Trip: Spent $4.93

Here’s what  I grabbed at Staples for $4.93 after Easy Rebate this week!  The ad didn’t seem all that exciting, but there are a few things I did want to grab. I usually grab the big bargains each week at the office supply stores and put them in a box, then right before school starts we go through and grab what we need and then donate the rest. It works out great each year!

Bought 1 Sharpie $1.99 (Free after Rebate)
Bought 2 rulers $.25
Bought 1 white board markers $2
Bought 1 Crayola pencils $.97
Bought 1 glue $.47
Bought 1 composition notebook $.50

  • Paid $6.92 out of pocket, submitted for $1.99 rebate
  • $4.93 after rebate

Laurie’s Staples Back-To-School Trip: And Why You Need to Know Your Prices

Here’s a peak at what I bought yesterday at Staples in my first back-to-school shopping trip this year! I was a little disappointed because a few of Staples “fantastic back-to-school savings” were really only a few pennies less or even more than the prices already were at Walmart, so I’ll be checking prices at the office supply stores against this list pretty closely before shopping the rest of the year.

 

(Remember, everyone’s going to be claiming to have the best deals this back-to-school season ~ your goal is to KNOW what the best prices are so you don’t pay too much!)

 

Here’s what I bought:

 

Bought 3 Crayola Markers 10 pack $.97 (regular price $1.27 at Walmart)

Bought 4 Composition Notebooks $.50

Bought 2 glue stick 4-packs $1.25 (2-packs were $.50 at Walmart – ugh! I knew they would be cheaper through the season but my kids convinced me they needed them . . . )

Bought 1 set sticky tabs $2 (these were also $1 at Walmart or at the Dollar Tree – ugh!)

Bought 1 pack 3-pack pink erasers $.96 (2-packs were $.50 at Walmart)

Bought 1 pack copy paper

So, not too bad, but if I’d known what my basic prices were at Walmart first, I would have skipped a few of the deals. I’ll be sharing a few more tips next week on how to get the very most bang for your buck with back-to school savings, and would love to hear your tips too!
(But here’s my most important tip . . . don’t let kids of any age go with you ~ they’ll try to convince you to purchase just about everything in the store.  Eek!) ;)

Walmart Back To School Price Guide

 

Ready to start hunting down back-to-school deals for your kids? I’m not quite there yet (ugh!), but the sales are already in full swing so I guess it’s time to get hopping. I always start each back-to-school season by seeing what the regular prices are at Walmart, so that when the office supply stores start putting out their ads I know whether or not their items are (really) a good deal.

(I actually went to Staples to grab their bargains right before visiting Walmart and realized that already Walmart was so close on some of their prices that I could have saved myself some effort without hitting Staples this week ~ except for the penny paper.) ;)
