  • About the beginning of August. I never have run into the 'out of stock' item frenzy. I hate having supplies sitting around cluttering the house. I buy them, label them, and pack the backpack that same day and then put it in the closet.

  • As soon as I get the list; I don't want to have to go to 10 stores to look for that one out of stock item.

  • We get a list maybe a month before school is out, and we buy it then. It's through school kidz. When the kids go for orientation day, the supplies will be there. I love it this way.

  • On the sales tax holiday in August. That's when they have all the great back to school specials too so I save a ton of money.

  • The 1st weekend after the flyers come out showing the sales. I buy extra stuff because my son goes to a charter school,and their budget is tight. i like to help out.
