It’s that time again: Back-to-School sales have begun! About this time every year, the office, drug and big box stores offer great deals on all the supplies your kids will need for the next school year! This year, they are actually starting about 2 weeks before they started last year, which is great news for all the people who started back to school this week.
I’ll have a consolidated list for you each week until the great deals subside in about 8 weeks.
Some stores offer excellent deals but require a minimum purchase like $5. Some stores offer great deals after rebates. Most will only let you get a certain number of each good deal.
Teacher Discounts: Some stores will allow teachers with ID to get larger quantities, so ask if that is an option, if you are a teacher (including homeschoolers).
Please post if you find any other deals!

There was not a local ad in my Sunday paper and there is not one available online so I don't have advertised school supply deals for you. I imagine they have also kicked in their school supply deals so if you happen to find any good ones, please post them here!
