Where is the cheapest place to get back to school supplies?

I am debating Wal-Mart and Target, but someone said they thought KMart had good deals. We are going tonight, so was wondering what you ladies thought!

  • Taget has some awesome prices right now. I stalked up on all kinds of things.

  • I agree. I only bought a few things... I went shopping in my craft room. I must have had 6 pairs of scissors in every color from when my other boys were in elementary school. I grabbed a bunch of pencils from around the house and resharpened them... they fit soooo much better in the supply box ~ new ones are too long! I found pink erasers and glue sticks... I did get a new box of crayons.. there is nothing better than NEW crayons.

  • Wally World. That is where I got my son's school supplies this year and last year. They have $.25 crayons and other stuff priced just as low.

  • I got our supplies at Target. I had a friend tell me she compared Target's prices with Walmart and found most things were actually the same or cheaper at Target.

  • Walmart

    Answer by CometGirl at 6:16 PM on Aug. 7, 2010

  • Yeah, Walmart. Target is usually a little more expensive, but their supply lasts a little longer.
