Best Back to School Sales 2019
I’m so excited about this free printable that my friends Shannon & Cheryl put together for you! We just updated it with all of the basic prices at Target, Walmart, Staples, Office Max and Office Depot, so hopefully this will make Back To School Shopping a wee bit easier for you.
While there's no guarantee on this pricing, the cheat sheet should give you a basic reference guide!
Go HERE to print your free printable Target ~ Walmart ~ Staples ~ Office Depot/Max Back to School Comparison Cheat Sheet, and share with your friends this school season so they can pinch those pennies too!
There's also a place to include school supplies that aren't listed on the printable – those weird extra things the teacher might include like Lysol Wipes or Hand Sanitizer. Speaking of – did you know that Amazon often has the best back to school sales on Lysol Wipes? (while you're at it, don't miss these other Amazon School Supply Deals we found recently!)
Back to School Shopping Tips
According to a recent survey – the average American family will spend $519 on back to school shopping😱😱 … but there are ways you can drastically cut those school expenses by shopping smarter!
Using the comparison cheat sheet above – OR this Back to School Deals Comparison tool that we update each week – you can be aware of which stores are running specials on the things you still need to buy.
Here are a few things to remember about this back to school supplies cheat sheet:
- Pricing will vary some by area. Staples, Office Depot and Office Max pricing should be fairly consistent nationwide, but Walmart and Target prices may be slightly different depending on your location.
- The regular prices on some items at Staples, Office Max and Office Depot are significantly higher on a few things, however their weekly sales ads will have deeply discounted savings that are worth picking up each week.
- Note that Target, Staples and Office Depot/Office Max have much lower prices on their store brands that are not all included on this list. Watch for those when you shop. (We based the list for the most part on name brands to make the pricing consistent at each store.)
- Since Walmart doesn’t typically offer big sales on their items (just every day low prices), my bet is the Walmart pricing should be pretty similar to what you’ll find at your local Walmart throughout the Back-To School season.
