Image result for back to school supply

The back to school deals are starting! Pretty soon there will be a ton of deals in stores for school supplies. I wanted to give you a buy price list of what you should be looking to pay for certain items.

Although some schools haven’t put out their supply lists yet, you can guess what will be on them: pencils, markers, binders, and more. Go ahead and start buying now so you won’t have to pay top dollar the week before school starts.

Remember that you can also price match name brand items (not store brand) at Target, Staples, Toys R Us and Best Buy, so keep that in mind if some stores sell out of items.  Staples also runs a 110% PRICE MATCH POLICY with school supplies that makes for an ever better deal!

If you don’t need these items, consider donating. There are lots of kids in need and schools always welcome supplies.

Note: Some of these items can end up being much cheaper with store promos, but the prices below are the general sale prices to watch for. Get the printable list here.
