School Supply Deals 8/1-8/7

Posted by on August 2, 2010

Here are all of the best prices from the major stores as listed in their ads.  Let us know if you come across any other great deals and I will add them to the chart.  I am going to do a little research this week and try to find some of the prices on the BOGO sales.  I will update prices as I find them and as readers comment and email.


The lowest prices for each item are in red and I have noted where you have to buy a certain amount below the price.

    at my target, i got the rose art colored pencils for .50 and free crayons. they are free when you buy the colored pencils.

  2. Michele says:

    Thanks for sharing this comparison! It was a big help!

  3. Elizabeth Rotering says:

    Is Wags short for Walgreens?

  4. brandi says:

    At toys r us, the lunchbox that I got had one of the parents free subscription cards included. If you don’t want the parents subscription, you can mail in the card to get a rebate for $4.97…making the backpack and lunch bag an even sweeter deal!

  5. This is a great list! I’m posting a link to your site on Froogaloo right now :)

  6. Robyn says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I was going to try to do this myself this week so I could buy school supplies for our church’s school supply drive — this will make it so much easier to get what I need. (I came here from Money Saving Mom, by the way.)

  7. Jenny says:

    THANK YOU for doing this! I was just about to make my own sheet. You saved me so much work!

  8. I was at Walmart the other day, and saw the pencils for a $1, and knew in most places it’s cheap. This would come in handy for my next shopping trip for school supplies.
    Thank you very much for the hard work.

  9. Deyanira says:

    Walmart had Dixon 24ct. pencils at .97, 2pk glue sticks .25, Crayola and Rose Art Crayons .25, 2pk black Sharpies 1.50

  10. Leslie says:

    Don’t forget that Wal-Mart price matches, so you can take your ads for all of the other stores into Wal-Mart and only have to make 1 trip!

    • Kerri says:

      Target price matches as well. It won’t help at either place though for the deals that involve store rewards. Thanks for bringing that up especially for those who have to drive far to get to certain stores!

  11. Carrie says:

    Target has the cutest stuff and alot more to choose from!

  12. Mel says:

    Target had a few tabbed dividers in the dollar spot section so $1 for tabbed dividers there.

  13. Robyn says:

    Just thought it might be worthy of note that some of these places (Office Max) have per-customer limits published in their ad. Also, my Walgreens was out of the 6-packs of highlighters, but I spoke with a manager and he was very willing to find me a substitute at the sale price. Always worth asking!

  14. fai port says:

    Does anyone know where is the best deal on large 12×18 construction paper and how much?

  15. Super Mommie says:

    Thanks for this chart. It’s really helpful!

  16. Katie says:

    I bought Crayola Crayons, 24 pack, for $0.25 each at Target.

    They weren’t advertised and didn’t have a “sale” price tag on them. The regular price tag was just $0.25, so I don’t know if it’s just a back to school thing or that is the regular price.

  17. Victoria says:

    Thank you for putting this together! I posted the link on my blog.

  18. LISA W. says:

    Thanks for creating this list – it’s great! Anyway you can add a printable version like PDF or Excel? I’ve had a hard time printing just the table without the other web page info.

    If not, I totally understand. Thanks!

    • Kerri says:

      If you look at the very bottom of the post, there is a print option. That should print just the post with none of the other info from the site. I hope that helps.

  19. april says:

    I was just at Costco today and their Ticonderoga #2 pencils come in a pack of around 8 dozen for around $8. I can’t remember the exact price, but I know for sure it was under a dollar for a dozen.

    Thanks for chart – so helpful!

  20. susan says:

    wonderful list. Thank you for you time on this. You have helped a lot!

  21. Wendi Sisson says:

    Thank you for taking the time to do this! So helpful. It will help us with our church youth group service project this afternoon as we buy school supplies to donate to our local elementary school. We’re going to target but I know which ad to look in for price matching as well. THANK YOU!
