    North Raleigh Dad, I checked the one on Fayetteville Rd in Durham this morning and they didn't have any marked down so it may be random stores.

    hlokers, my advice on homeschooling would vary wildly depending on *why* you have decided to homeschool, what you picture in your head when you think homeschooling, and how your kid is wired. I second checking out the Dept of Nonpublic Instruction's website, and being up to speed on the legal requirements.

    If you come to any of the regular coupon swaps, let people know you're thinking of homeschooling. If I'm there, we can talk (I'm not the only HSer, but I am very opinionated :P ). I took my son out of public school in 7th grade to homeschool.

    Kohls in apex is getting ready to mark down summer clothes. If you are shopping during the tax free weekend, it's a great deal. I have some 20% off coupons we were given to use. As for the super doubles being on Aug. 1, it could tie well in with tax free weekend. Maybe they will run specials on school supplies. LOL! It figures, we will have have 2 days to shop, my husband is driving up Aug. 3 to NJ to take care of some family business and to bring down my nephew to live with us. The economy hit my sister's family really hard. Hopefully things get better for all affected.

    North Raleigh Dad...the cashier told me she had just marked them down yesterday so it may mean that your store hasn't marked them down yet.

    North Raleigh was the one at the corner of 55/54 in Durham. I have a friend checking another one this evening.

    Which Walgreens were you able to find those on markdown? Ive tried 2 with no success.

    Check out your Walgreens. They had 2pk sprays of Coppertone Sport marked down to $4.25. There was a $1 off coupon in a "beauty" coupon booklet at the cosmetic station. Pair that with the $5/2 coupon that was in a resent insert; it's $1.50 for 4 bottles. To top it off, it printed a $3 Rewards coupon, so $1.50 MM. I just found another $5/2...I'm heading back. I hope you leave me some.
