I'm a mom going back to college in August...

And I need to know where I can find some cheap school supplies. You know pencils, pens, highlighters, white out, folders, binders, the whole nine yards? I want to be able to provide a great life for my 1 year old and I'm starting by going back to school to become a pediatric physical therapist. Thanks everyone!

  • Target is great for these things.. I think they're even cheaper than Walmart. Good for you for going back to school, best of luck!

  • There will be a ton of back to school sales then. Office Depot, Staple, Office Max all of those offer $.10 pens, $.25 white out, etc before school.

  • All of that goes on sale in July. Target is the best. Don't go overboard you won't need much. Best wishes for meeting all your goals.

  • Go to Dollar Tree, you can a lot of the stuff you need there. It's great you're going to school, I went back after being out 25 years. Now I have an associates degree in Early Childhood Education. Are you starting at DSCC or at a 4-year college?
