Here's how to get all of those necessary supplies with the best back-to-school sales around. Use this  Back-to-School Stock-up Price List  to determine if you’re getting the best deal.   1. Buy pencils at    Staples    when they run back-to-school sales for $0.25 a box   If you want name-brand pencils, then watch for Amazon to price their  Ticonderoga #2 pencils  for $9.96 for 96 pencils, making them just $0.10 each! This is one of our favorite deals to buy pencils in bulk.   2. Buy crayons at    Walmart    when they’re $0.50 per 24-pack.   It’s easy to get Crayola crayons for under KCL stock-up prices when you combine a coupon or an  Ibotta  rebate with a sale.   3. Buy rulers at    Office Depot    when they reach $0.25 each.   Office Depot always drops prices on rulers for back-to-school shopping because they know it’ll get you into the store — and let’s face it, they’re probably right.   4. Buy glue sticks at    Walmart    when they’re $0.25 each.   You can find Elmer’s brand glue — both liquid and glue sticks — for cheaper than the generic version at Walmart for back-to-school shopping.   5. Buy calculators at    Dollar Tree    for $1.00.   Paying $1.00 plus tax is a great way to save on super expensive back-to-school supplies.   6. Buy hand sanitizer at    Target    when it’s $1.25 — or less — per bottle.   We saw this happen last year with Purell hand sanitizer. A good stock-up price for an 8-ounce bottle is $1.25. But we got it at Target for $0.37 per bottle! When you can combine a coupon, a  Cartwheel discount  and a rebate-app offer at Target, it basically rains money. And if you haven’t downloaded  Target’s app , then you should probably do that right now. The app has Cartwheel inside, which will get you tons of coupons and in-store discounts.   7. Buy colored pencils at    Family Dollar    when they’re $1.00 per pack.   Stock up on colored pencils when they reach $1.00 or less for a 12-pack. Last year,  Family Dollar marked Crayola colored pencils down to $1.00/12-pack. This is a must-have for your back-to-school supplies list!   8. Buy spiral notebooks at    Walmart    when they reach $0.25 each.   Two years ago, spiral notebooks went for $0.17 each at Walmart. This was the best price we’ve ever seen. Last year, we could only find them for $0.25 each at Walmart. It’ll have to do!   9. Buy facial tissue at    Walgreens    when it’s under $1.00 per box.  10. Buy disinfecting wipes at    Target    when they’re $0.04 per wipe.   Target has the best Lysol deals, and you’ll likely be able to get them for under $0.04 per wipe during back-to-school sales, which is the KCL stock-up price.   11. Buy folders at    Office Depot    when they’re $0.15 each.   You can find 2-pocket folders at Office Depot for as low as $0.15 each during the back-to-school shopping season.   12. Buy ballpoint pens at    Target    when they’re $0.07 each.   Aim to spend no more than $0.07 per pen anywhere you shop, and keep an eye out for  Bic coupons because last year there was a $1.00 off Bic coupon. A package of 10 pens is $0.99 at Target, so this coupon made it so they were free. My favorite back-to-school shopping is the free kind!   13. Buy scissors at    Walmart    for $0.50 each.   In 2018 we saw children’s scissors for $0.50 at Walmart. Walmart offered a rollback price on Fiskars — no coupons needed!   14. Buy composition notebooks at    Staples    when they’re $0.50 each.   Composition notebooks typically reach as low as $0.50 each at Staples — sale price! No coupons necessary.   15. Buy lunch boxes at    Old Navy    when they go on clearance for less than $5.00.   In July 2018 we saw Old Navy put lunch boxes on clearance for just $4.97, down from $12.00! That’s a pretty sweet savings on cute and insulated lunch boxes.
