{pencils & crayons & glue sticks, oh my}


Guess what friends!!  It’s back to school time already!

Ahem….okay it’s not actually time to send the kiddos back to school.  But it is time to start stocking up on school and office supplies.

Once a year us savvy shoppers get to stock up on enough school and office supplies to last us the entire year through.  If you do a little bit every week, you’ll be able to get just about everything on your child’s back to school list for just pennies.  If you’re a parent who’s ever had to purchase school supplies in the past, you know that waiting until the last minute and then making a 2 hour long trip to your local big box superstore will result in a checkout total that could give you a heart attack.  And you also run the risk of not being able to find everything that you need!

Take a little bit of time now and stock up slowly.  Here are the best deals available this week!

As you can see, there is plenty on the list here to get you started!  Also, don’t forget to sign up for the Staples Rewards program while you’re in the store if you haven’t already.  And while you’re at Office Max, you can sign up for the MaxPerks Rewards program.  Both programs are free to join and will earn you extra savings throughout the year ~ especially this time of year!

And as one last sidenote, teachers receive even better rewards at Staples so make sure if you’re a teacher you sign up for the Teacher Rewards program.  Staples typically allows teachers much higher limits on the number of items they are allowed to purchase at the rock bottom stock up prices.  And the best news??  Homeschool parents also qualify for the Teacher Rewards program!  Whoo hoo!!!
