CouponKatie’s Best Back to School Savings Tip


I have been getting a lot of emails regarding school supplies and the best way to stock up with out spending a lot of money or going to ten different stores.  So here it is, my best back to school savings tip if you want to save money and be efficient with your time.

Use the price matching policies at Wal Mart or Target to get the lowest price on all the supplies you need in one stop.

  • Gather all your weekly store ads (Walgreens, CVS, Target, K Mart,  Staples,  Office Depot, etc)
  • Grab a marker and circle the best deals on the supplies you need.
  • Make a list
  • Head to the closest Wal Mart or Target with your list and you circulars.
  • Gather all the supplies you want, go to the customer service desk, show them your circled deals and they will price match them all for you. You just got the best deals available for the lowest price possible-in one stop!

You should know that the products will probably have to be name brand, for example Crayola, for either store to match. So, you may be able to get better deals on store brands other places but, if you are looking to be efficient this is the way to go.

You still have a few weeks worth of ads before school starts so I would start this process now and make one trip a week until you have everything you need.

Just a quick example but, if you still have all your ads from this week you could circle:

Crayola colored pencils (12 pk)-$0.99
Elmer’s glue sticks (2 pk)- $.0.20

K Mart
Crayola crayons (24)- $.89
Paper Mate gel pens (2pk)- $.99

Paper Mate mechanical pencils (5pk)-$0.19
Paper Mate pens (10 pk)-$0.19
Bic highlighters (8pk)-$0.49
Scotch transparent tape-$0.39

Office Depot
Paper Mate pens (12 pk)- $0.25
Paper Mate erasers (3pk)-$.99

Expo Markers (4 pk)- $1

Take all of them to Target or Wal Mart and get some good deals in one trip. If you do not have your ads from this week just get ready, on Sunday we can all plan a strategy and share our ideas for efficient back to school savings!

Discount School Supply: $10 off $10 Order :Dead Deal


*UPDATE** Looks like this deal is dead. The banner on their homepage changed to $10 off $50 order. They stated it was because of overwhelming response. What did they expect?! Free school supplies at back to school time……

I know a lot of you are thinking about stocking up on back to school or home school supplies so this deal at Discount School looks like a pretty good.  Right now through July 13th  you  can use the code SAVETEN at checkout and get $10 off your order of $10 or more.  Shipping will cost you $5 but if you only spend $10 that is a 50% savings and it comes right to your door.  If you have to buy all these supplies anyway you might as well save some money!

There are also a lot of clearance items you might want to check out. Even if you do not need school supplies there are a few good toys that would make inexpensive Christmas gifts.
