School Supplies Sales Continue!

 Office Depot has some more great school supply deals this week

2-pocket plastic portfolios – $0.01 (Limit 10) (these are great for the Personal Reading folders in grades K-1)
Office Depot Notebook Filler paper, 150-ct – $0.15 (Limit 5)
Scholastic Crayons 16-ct – $0.25 (Limit 5) (this is a great price — but also check out Walmart for non-brand crayons for only $o.17 too  I don’t think Walmart has a limit)
1″ Vinyl Binder – $0.50 (Limit 5)
Sharp Scientific Calculator – FREE after mail-in rebate (Limit 1) (I love free!!)
Backpacks starting at $4.99 (for your own tykes, obviously!)

These deals are good through Saturday (July 26, 2008) but they are very likely to sell out quickly.  If you really, really want something– get there sooner rather than later.

Staples has more school supply sales through Wednesday (July 23, 2008) of this week. These aren’t as great as a few weeks ago, but if you’re going to be in the area of a Staples store, it might be worth checking out.

  • $0.05 – Staples cap erasers (Item 167601) – Limit 2 (they will double the limits if you show them your NEA card or even a paystub or a Staples Teacher Rewards card)
  • $0.05 – 2 pocket paper folders (Items 430421, 430579) – Limit 10
  • $0.05 – Staples 6″ plastic protractor – Limit 2
  • $0.25 – 1/2 and 1-inch simply plastic assorted binders – Limit 4 (I wasn’t happy with these last year.  They cracked and tore rather quickly.  But if you do like them — this is a great price)
  • $0.99 – Pentel RSVP Ballpoint pens, fine, assorted (Item 474028 ) – Limit 2
  • Free after rebate – Zebra Cadoozles 0.7 mm mechanical pencils – Limit 1 (these are cool looking — and you cannot beat FREE no matter how hard you try)

also, remember that you can price-match both stores’ deals at Wal-Mart, if that’s easier for you. Just bring the ad with you.
